YouTube to Improve Tools for Mobile Video Creators
Published on: 25th May 2014
YouTube has revealed that it is working on a mobile app aimed at its video uploader community to make it easier to edit and upload videos direct from smartphones.
The company is also broadening the funding options for video creators away from the basic advertising funded model to one where fans will be able to make small donations to the creators directly.
YouTube, which is owned by Google, is also working on a crowd-based method of letting the viewers improve video subtitles for multiple languages. Google already has its own language translation service, but that is predominantly text based, so the audio translation has needed improving.
The company added that these features will join a few recent updates, including new comment management features, a way for artists to share in revenue from eligible cover song videos, and their ever-expanding Creator Academy.
