Build Your Custom TV News Channel With The Newslook iPad App

Build Your Custom TV News Channel With The Newslook iPad App | Tips, Tricks and Technology How To's | Scoop.it

Excerpted from the original article on GigaOM: "While video lovers have gotten more and more social services that serve up interesting clips from friends, it’s still not easy to construct a more comprehensive look at video news by topic. That’s the gap that New York state startup Newslook is trying to fill with a new iPad app that allows users to construct channels of their favorite news subjects on the fly.

 

Newslook is now getting even more into the consumer video space with its first iPad app. The app, which will debut at the paidContent 2012 conference Wednesday, allows users to build their own channel using video from more than 50 sources including the AP, Reuters, Bloomberg, National Geographic and others.

 

Newslook takes in hundreds of videos each day from its sources and applies a bunch of metadata to a smaller number of clips, putting them into various taxonomies that can be searched. Users who look for Barack Obama or The Hunger Games can pull up a stream of professional videos that are tied to the topic and can create an instant channel based on that topic.

 

Newslook adds more than 150 new videos a day that have been hand selected and tagged with metadata. In addition to search, there’s also tabs for finding top videos and clips that are trending and featured. Users who view one video can also see a list of relevant metadata terms to construct a similar channel. And they can share their videos on Facebook, with Twitter and Pinterest support coming later..."

Video Curation: Auto-Create YouTube Video Playlists with Integrated Thumbnails

Video Curation: Auto-Create YouTube Video Playlists with Integrated Thumbnails | Tips, Tricks and Technology How To's | Scoop.it

Robin Good: YouTube has released new functionality that allows you to create an embeddable video playlist on any topic, or user ID while integrating thumbnails for all clips included.

 

Here is an example. Go to: http://www.youtube.com/embed/?listType=user_uploads&list=RobinGood&showinfo=1 and see an automatically created playlist of all my uploaded video clips.

 

And if you pass also the parameter, "showinfo=1", when creating the player, the list of video thumbnails will be permanently visible by clicking in the playlist icon appearing on the bottom right of the YouTube player.

 

If you want to embed such a playlist use this syntax:
 

**<iframe width="560" height="315"
src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/?listType=user_uploads&amp;list=RobinGood&amp;showinfo=1" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>***

 

and replace "RobinGood" with any YouTube user id.

 

Alternatively, replace listType=user with listType=search or listType=user_uploads to get specific terms searched and aggregated or to showcase all the uploads of a certain YouTube user.

 

Here is another example: http://www.youtube.com/embed/?listType=search&amp;list=news%20curation&amp;showinfo=1&nbsp;- here I have changed the listType to "search" and have used as query terms "news curation". Check the result.
