One of those things that you would’ve thought was out already: YouTube now has a new app with which its users can capture video that is instantly uploaded to the sharing site.
Of course this’ll mean even more shared moments that might best be kept private if the uploader took a minute or two to think twice, as well as embarrassingly long takes that could’ve benefited from just a little editing…
“Life moves fast,” the company says. “To speed up recording, enhancing and sharing videos with your friends or the whole world, you can now use the YouTube Capture app on your iPhone or iPod touch. YouTube Capture is ready to record as soon as you open it. When you’re done filming, write a caption, select which networks you want to share to, and hit Share.”
You can control who sees your video by setting it to private (only you can view it), unlisted (only people with a link to the video can view it), or public (to let it shine to the world).
Actually, some editing is allowed post-upload: color correction, stabilization, and trimming the length, as well free background music can be done on YouTube.
It’s now on Apple’s App Store, and Android version is in the works.
