YouTube Launches 'Capture' App to Easily Film and Share Videos




YouTube has launched a new app called Capture to make it easier for users to shoot and share video. The app is one of many competing for the unofficial title of 'Instagram-for-videos'.

The app is set up for quick and easy recording, basic editing with color correction, stabilization, trimming, and music tracks, as well as the ability to share videos on YouTube, Google+, Facebook and Twitter.
Quote:
Once opening Capture, users can shoot new video or use existing footage from their camera roll; from there they can apply some automatic color correction filters, trim the video, and even apply a soundtrack. The app automatically starts uploading video as soon as you're done shooting, and it also helpfully includes a landscape lock reminder to help cut down the blight of vertically-shot videos that are being taken these days.
YouTube Capture is a free download from the App Store. [Direct Link]

No "Do Not Attempt"?

I've seen ads with people simply driving cars around parking lots at low speed show a "Do Not Attempt" banner. Here we have people lighting dozens of sparklers using blow torches. Some of those sparklers are attached directly to a human being.

If you seriously need an "do not attempt" for you to not try to recreate something you saw on tv that is clearly dangerous, without doing your own research before hand, then you deserve everything that goes wrong.

I'm pretty sure the built-in camera ap doesn't automatically upload to more than one service nor does color correction, add musical beds or have stabilization...

Oh, oh.

Glad to see a big company make moves to capture a market instead of all these start ups. Video is still something I don't care for however.

How about working to fix the screwed up youtube layout instead of pumping out useless apps.

I always had wondered why Youtube didn't have a mobile video creation app to begin with. Seems like a no brainer.

YouTube is becoming a wasteland.

It doesn't work with HTML5 anymore.

It's flooded with ads everywhere and last friday even clicking on the "play" button of a video opened a new browser window for a 3rd-party game.

All my future videos will be uploaded to Vimeo.

Every time a company does something new, there's always the "why don't they do this important thing instead?" comment. You do realize that not everyone from Google or YouTube was involved in doing this app and that not everyone can work on a single feature or fix? It's not like Apple went "ok guys, our maps aren't very good so we'll have to stop working on iPad Minis and put everyone on fixing our maps".

Regarding the layout, which one do you mean? Because they just came up with a new one (or at least they're testing a few different ones). The one I have works fine for me.

I know, it looks like it failed to load properly!!! And they also ruined the channel design before that. Imagine if Apple owned YouTube and did that. They'd get burned at the stake for making a mistake that bad. I don't even understand why; Google also has very high expectations of quality. I always thought they were doing an excellent job with YouTube until these horrible developments.

P.S. A lot of users (including me) on all types of browsers and OSs have been reporting problems of some videos not showing up at all in YouTube after the new layout. There's just a black square instead of the player. Did they hire Microsoft to do this or something??!

We're not everyone
Besides, if everyone was like me except that they didn't use AdBlock, nobody would buy anything anyway from the ads (or, in some cases, boycott the advertised product), so ads would not work. Also, if everyone was like me, the "fashion" industry would be dead.

That's great. Portrait mode is extremely annoying. So many great videos have been ruined.

The ability to do this has basically been there for a while, but this gives advanced features. You could already upload the video without enhancements:

What's wrong with vertical videos? Maybe the movie and TV industry has just been doing it wrong this whole time?

What lead me to this thinking is that online video is not always TV or movies. Sometimes they are, but sometimes they're more like moving photography. And we let still photographers shoot vertically...why can't certain videos be too?

My Challenge: Watch this video and tell me if it would have been better shot widescreen.

Rocket Launch

I don't see how that specific video would be better wide.

Human vision is "widescreen."

I'm an amateur photographer (cited as background not as expertise), and I remember as a kid the whole world of options that opened up simply by turning the camera 90 degrees. As I got older and started watching people around me taking pictures, it intrigued me how this one simple little trick was lost on so many. When I would recommend a vertical shot (think, family in front of the castle at Walt Disney World), people would be amazed at the picture tha could be obtained.

The design of the cameras did a lot to force this. The 35mm format and cameras were designed for the landscape nature of our vision and our horizontally-oriented hands. Other formats, meant more for studio photography, which often made their way into vertically oriented magazines, weren't tied to this same constraint. Thanks to the design of camera phones, vertical has become much more normal. Unfortunately, that extends to video from these devices as well.

Vertical is fine for still photography. The image isn't changing so it gives our widescreen vision a chance to take everything in. Video and movies, though, are meant to be an extension of our eys in the real world. Even if the movie is shot vertically, the image is presented to eyes that are used to seing horizontally. It forces an uncomfortable translation.

The movie screen doesn't fit that way!

Actually, still photographers use vertical all the time. Portrait mode. Talking to someone while showing their figure, from head to waist. Nothing's the matter with it.

All this onslaught of well-written apps, it's great, but I know what I don't like. Install the gmail app and it changes your "got mail" beep to a thunk. Can't figure out how to change it back, at least for Mail mail.

I don't think you need a fancy philosophical explanation. You had to put a movie screen in a room for hundreds of people. You weren't going to switch the movie screen orientation for portrait mode. Then TVs, the early ones, weighed 200 pounds. But a smartphone is a personal space camera. A series of interviews with a bunch of people filmed in "portrait mode" is quite interesting to me.

Nope. 720p max.
