Automatic Captions on Videos Now Available in Six More Languages Including German, Italian, French and Russian

Automatic Captions on Videos Now Available in Six More Languages Including German, Italian, French and Russian | Social Web Innovation | Scoop.it

Robin Good: YouTube has just made available today the automatic captioning feature to six more European languages: German, Italian, French, Portuguese, Russian and Dutch.


By utilizing this feature, which can be activated on any video by clicking a simple icon on the bottom of the video player, YouTube will automatically transcribe and display the spoken content of any video in one of the languages supported.


From the official announcement: "As automatic captions will have some errors, creators also have several tools to improve the quality of their captions. Automatic captions can be a starting point, where creators can then download them for editing, or edit them in-line on YouTube. Creators can also upload plain-text transcripts in these languages, and the same technology will generate automatically-synchronized captions."

VP9 | The New Standard For Video Encoding?

VP9 | The New Standard For Video Encoding? | Social Web Innovation | Scoop.it
Massimiliano Cammuso's insight:


Google has been working for some time to an open source compressor for high quality video and at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas (Jan 7-10  2014) will present the new format VP9, which offers 4k video compatibility and optimization for Internet bandwidth consumption, ensuring a great flow with a band from 7mb.


Until now it was imposed as compressor the H264 format and soon to be released will be the version H265 that will support 4k video quality. 


VP9 is characterized by being free and open source and by its strategic alliances with leading hardware and software manufacturers including LG, Sony, Intel, Samsung, NVidia etc..


The further thing, not least, to imagine that VP9 might become the new standard format is that YouTube, of course, will adopt this format, and just at the CES will demonstrate streaming video using the new VP9.


H265 against VP9 : What will be the standard ?

Are the Major Labels Faked 2 Billion YouTube Views?

Are the Major Labels Faked 2 Billion YouTube Views? | Social Web Innovation | Scoop.it

The record labels knowing how to manipulate key numbers to their advantage.

Massimiliano Cammuso's insight:


From few days circulating the rumor that some of the major music labels have unclear procedures for increasing the number of views of their videos and that is why Youtube has punished those channels, eliminating views and even music videos.


The real story behind this news is that to monetize videos of their channels, the record labels, are entrusting to VEVO which best handles revenue obtained through advertising and through the viewcount.
