To provide feed-back in order to enhance a product is rewarding, especially when it is acknowledged by the producers. YouTube Creators’ Matthew Glotzbach and Oliver Heckmann state that they based the new Youtube updates on users’ feedback. At the Vidcon in Anaheim on Thyrsday, YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki, announced a number of changes to Youtube. A total number of nine updates have been added to the video platform. The changes are aimed to strongly increase Youtube’s interactivity. We will present a couple of the most impressive new Youtube video tools.
Youtube’s impressive new video tools
One of the most important is the new option to get funding from fans. Inspired by crowdfunding platforms such as Kickstarter and Indiegogo, Youtube’s team offers from now on the possibility to fund your ideas in accordance with supporters’ interest. Moreover, there will be new options of showing the creators’ credits in separate specialized fields such as actors, writers and editors.
For regular users, one of the most impressive Youtube video tools surely is the new option to play videos at 48 and even 60 frames per second. It adds a new level of realism to the Youtube experience and the creators are eager to test the option, as well as the other new video tools as soon as possible.
New sound effects stored in the Audio Library can be used to enhance the video and audio experience on Youtube. The Audio Library contains sounds ranging from zombie screams to fighter-plane sounds.
Although Youtube seems to get way better, a recent controversy is on its tail. Youtube grew into the largest streaming provider in the world. Naturally, the vast majority of musicians ended up depending on the platform. A couple of days ago, Youtube announced changes in the royalty terms and rates which appear to be unfair to independent labels. Maybe the new video tools, primarily the funding platform offered by Youtube, will help solve the dispute in agreeable terms.
For a full preview of how Youtube will be able to offer enhanced playback options, check out these three showcase videos offered by the broadcaster. Change the quality settings to the 1080p so you can enjoy blazing fast action which is more realistic than ever! As a reference, director Peter Jackson shot ‘The Hobbit’ in 48 frames. Now you will be able to enjoy a higher image quality than ever before with the new video tools!
Least, but not last, keep sending your feedback to Youtube, as it just might turn into reality!
