Uploading videos to YouTube is something the iPhone and other iOS-powered devices can already do, but now there’s an app developed by Google themselves designed to shoot, enhance and upload videos to YouTube in record time. The app is called Capture, and it’s designed to be ready to shoot from the second the app is opened. Users can even opt to lock the device in horizontal shooting mode to avoid unsightly portrait videos.
As soon as recording finishes, the upload dialogue appears prompting the user to choose privacy settings (between Public, Unlisted and Private), add a description and choose which social networks to share with. There are further enhancements in the form of image stabilisation, the ability to add a soundtrack as well as editing the video down to size using the trimming tool.
Videos are then sent to YouTube in the background so the app doesn’t need to be active in order for the upload to complete. Users can choose between 480p and 720p compression for uploads, and even if an upload is cancelled, the video will be saved to the user’s Camera Roll. Capture is without a doubt the fastest way of shooting and uploading a video to YouTube.
- Ready to go from the second the app is launched, just hit record.
- Enhancements like stabilisation, horizontal lock, optional soundtracks and trimming.
- Upload straight after shooting – choose a description, sharing and privacy options from the same dialogue.
- Upload videos in the background, with no need for the app to be open.
