If you’re shaky like me when capturing video on a cell phone or handheld video camera, YouTube has help for you. Last week YouTube released a new feature for the YouTube video editor. Now when you upload a video to your YouTube account, if the video is too shaky or dark you will be notified that YouTube can improve it for you. To help you decide if you want to use the automatically enhanced video, you’ll see a preview of the improved video next to your original video file. The short video below offers a preview of the new service.
Applications for Education
If your students are creating “one-take” videos for a video blogging project, creating records of field trips, or you’re just trying to capture a great moment in your classroom, the YouTube video editor is helpful for making quick enhancements to that footage.
