YouTube To Replace TV News by Curating Dynamic Video Channels for Crisis and Emergency: The Crisis Response One Box

Robin Good: YouTube is moving further ahead in the effort to find new and effective ways to "curate" its most valuable content and in doing it it may just provide a better service than live TV.

In this light it has partnered with Storyful, a content curation platform provider, to give life to a series of new curated channels with user-generated videos, covering live emergency crises around the world as they happen.

SocialMediaToday (AU) reports: ""YouTube collates Storyful’s verified footage and provides the most up to date clips in the separate Crisis Response One Box at the top of the search results, so that people can view legitimate and genuine footage relevant to the event, and keep apprised of what’s happening. Often, before they will be able to view it via mainstream media outlets..."

"YouTube created the Crisis Response One Box in conjunction with Storyful in an attempt to provide almost instant access to the latest breaking news footage in the event of a crisis or disaster.

Information can be slow-flowing, particularly in making its way around the globe. Users don’t have to wait for their local news station to provide an update."

Mashable reports:"...The tool curates the most up-to-date videos and information on major crises and disasters.

YouTube implemented it for the first time on Monday, once news of the floods broke.

The box also includes text information and resources, including links to Google’s Crisis Response project and related news."

"...the Crisis Response One Box includes three types of content: a curated playlist of videos, a Google News cluster about the crisis and the Google Crisis Response page. All of these resources are regularly updated until the crisis abates, when the box will no longer appear with the search results."

Curate Your Own Video Channels and Mixtapes With DragOnTape

Curate Your Own Video Channels and Mixtapes With DragOnTape | Content Curation World |

Robin Good: DragOnTape is a great video curation tool designed for music fans who want to put together mixtapes to watch back on their mobiles, or that can be played at parties and events in a full-screen, back-to-back fashion.

DragOnTape which works both on the desktop and on your iPhone, allows you to easily search for any YouTube video / video mentioned on Twitter / Soundcloud clip and then to add it to your video-mixtape-collection.

You can drag and drop video clips on a timeline, move their order and position (albeit that's not always too easy), trim clips and make clips transition smoothly from one to the next with no breaks.

Obviously, just like I did in this test curated channel, you can bring any type of video content on any topic you like. These are 27 curated clips on content curation itself:!/4991003 

The playback interface is simply wonderful. Once you understand a few nuances it's impossible not to fall in love with it.

As I have said, the full compilation can be played back-to-back, while you have the option at all times to see the full playlist index and to jump to any clip you prefer. 


Once completed your video mixtape can be easily published to the DragOnTape portal, as well as embedded into any web site or blog or shared with a direct link.

P.S.: While this is a great video curation platform that can be used for any topic, the spontaneous community of curators on DragOnTape has developed a spectacular trove of curated music mixtapes with some truly golden gems in there. 

DragOnTape is free to use.

Excellent. 9/10
