YouTube reveals new ‘Capture’ app for iPhone and iPod touch devices

Video-sharing site YouTube has created a new YouTube Capture app for iPhone and iPod touch devices that records as soon as you open it and allows users to share when they’re done filming.

YouTube Capture is ready to record as soon as you open it,” explained YouTube software engineer Reed Morse in the company’s blog.

“When you’re done filming, write a caption, select which networks you want to share to, and hit Share. Even if you minimise the app, the video will keep uploading in the background,” he explained.

In terms of privacy and security, users can control who sees their videos by setting them to private, unlisted (only those with a link to the video can see it) or public.

New YouTube video technologies

YouTube is working hard on boosting the capabilities of its video technologies and adding new professional elements.

An example of this is the new enhancement tools that come with the YouTube Capture app, such as colour correction and stabilisation.

It also comes with editing tools that allow users to trim the length of the video and add free background music.

The app also ensures users record videos horizontally with their smartphone to avoid “vertical video syndrome” to ensure a more high-quality look to the videos.
