Secrets Of YouTube You Should Know ~ MakeUseOf

Secrets Of YouTube You Should Know ~ MakeUseOf | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

by Simon Slangen


"YouTube is a favourite past-time for many of us; the chance to lead your own TV station. From you, for you. And yet, for all the time we spend on this web site, we know very little about it. It’s not surprising, seeing the size of this site, that there are a lot of back doors. A lot of ways to do things you wouldn’t expect.


"If you like YouTube, as many of us do, it’ll pay off to look into these secrets. With this knowledge, it’s easier to get what you want, when you want it; to enjoy YouTube in its full glory."

YouTube Capture- A Practical iPad App for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

YouTube Capture- A Practical iPad App for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

by Med Kharbach

 

"YouTube Capture is definitely a must have iPad app for teachers and students. This app is developed by Google and, unlike the basic YouTube app, YouTube Capture allows users to record videos and upload them instantly and right from their iPad or phones and Instagram.


"Some of the fantastic features that distinguish YouTube Capture from the rest of crowd is the fact that it allows users to make use of YouTube’s stabilization, trimming, and automatic colour correction features – something that other video upload apps don’t. Another perk is the time limit which isn’t just a few seconds. In fact, you can record as long as your typical YouTube video would last, so all you really need to worry about is your Internet speed. Furthermore, you can upload and simultaneously share your videos with nearly all social media services as you go."

YouTube's Founders Challenge Vine and Instagram with New Video App | NY Times

YouTube's Founders Challenge Vine and Instagram with New Video App | NY Times | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

by Vindu Goel

 

"Chad Hurley and Steve Chen are back with MixBit, a new mobile app that they hope will make it easier to shoot, edit and remix videos on the go.

 

"On the surface, MixBit resembles two other leading video apps, Twitter’s Vine and Facebook’s Instagram. As with those apps, users press and hold the screen of their smartphone to record video. Instagram users can capture up to 15 seconds of video, a bit longer than Vine’s six-second maximum. MixBit allows 16 seconds.

 

"But as the name suggests, MixBit is all about mixing and editing video. Both the app and a related Web site, MixBit.com, are aimed at making it easy to clip and stitch together snippets of video. Simple tools built into the app allow users to edit each 16-second clip and combine up to 256 clips into an hourlong video. The final product can then be shared on Twitter, Facebook, Google Plus or the MixBit Web site."

YouTube Offers All Schools Education-Only Link, Beefs Up K-12 Content | MindShift | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

Just in case you haven't heard about this already. -JL

 

All schools can now use the YouTube educational video site, youtube.com/education, without having to jump over Internet filtering hurdles.

 

For schools that choose to opt in to the YouTube for Schools Program, YouTube will redirect Web users who go to the site straight over to youtube.com/education. On this portion of the site, all comments are disabled and the only related videos are those that can be found in the Education portal of the site.

 

The option has been created for parents, teachers, and administrators who fear children will be exposed to inappropriate materials on the site.

Upcoming: YouTube Video Player Introduces Storyboards and Timeline Thumbnailing

Amit Agarwal has a scoop on the next upcoming version of the YouTube video player. He writes:

 

"The next version of YouTube video player will have one very useful feature – you can hover your mouse to any point in the video, without actually moving the playhead, and the YouTube player will show you an image thumbnail of the video frame at the position.

 

Thus you can easily get a visual gist of the whole video while the clip is still buffering.

 

I recorded a screencast video and that should give you a better idea of this new feature."
