YouTube enhances its on screen experience
08.39 Europe/London, October 26, 2011 By Robert Briel
YouTube has made a few enhancements to its ‘user experience’, the company writes in his official blog, including the launch of the WeVideo online video editing platform.
The online video portal added the cloud-based video editing platform WeVideo as a partner to YouTube.com/Create. This gives loaders more options to edit and touch up their videos.
YouTube has also updated the video end-screen. “We’ve redesigned the end-screen that appears directly after a video finishes playing to make it even easier for you to find the next great video to watch.”
The portal has in addition updated the interface for video playlists, making the individual video details more visible from within the playlist and making the next, previous, auto-play and shuffle buttons more distinct.
The YouTube charts page has also been updated. Viewers can browse through the most viewed (standard and HD), most liked, and top favourited videos of today, this week, this month and of all time.
Pulling from the ‘As Seen On’ feature, viewers are able to see what videos are being shared and discussed across the web. This includes niche interests with categories such as “How to & Style” and “Pets & Animals,” and also see the most subscribed channels.
YouTube has added localised versions of the portal for Kenya, the Philippines and Singapore to the list of countries where it is localised, bringing this total number to 35.
