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'.

Youtubecapture
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.

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]

The best feature is that they force you to shoot in landscape mode!

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. :rolleyes:

All my future videos will be uploaded to Vimeo.

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.

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

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

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.
