Curate YouTube Playlists with New Intro and Outro Video Feature

Curate YouTube Playlists with New Intro and Outro Video Feature | Content Curation World | Scoop.it

Robin Good: YouTube has just introduced a great, valuable feature to its playlist service, by allowing playlist authors to add short video clips at the beginning, end and in between any clip, to contextualize, introduce or explain what has been seen or is coming up next.


From the original article on TheNextWeb: "YouTube decided to help out the community a bit by releasing a new intro and outro feature that lets you insert professional clips in between your videos easily.

 

YouTube Engineer Eric Lundberg said: "You can choose from a variety of styles for text introductions and even add royalty-free music tracks. Interstitials will appear as unlisted videos in your account, and are eligible for monetization if they are at least 15 seconds long."

 

These particular features allow video creators to tell a full story in a series of videos. Even if you’re not making your own videos, creating a playlist is a way of providing a valuable service to the community."

This is a great addition for video curators who can now add their viewpoint, comments and context to any video compilation they decide to assemble.


N.B.: You can choose from a variety of styles for text introductions and even add royalty-free music tracks. Interstitials will appear as unlisted videos in your account, and are eligible for monetization if they are at least 15 seconds long.


The interstitial video clips can be recorded directly from you webcam.

Video Curation: Auto-Create YouTube Video Playlists with Integrated Thumbnails

Video Curation: Auto-Create YouTube Video Playlists with Integrated Thumbnails | Content Curation World | Scoop.it

Robin Good: YouTube has released new functionality that allows you to create an embeddable video playlist on any topic, or user ID while integrating thumbnails for all clips included.


Here is an example. Go to: http://www.youtube.com/embed/?listType=user_uploads&list=RobinGood&showinfo=1 and see an automatically created playlist of all my uploaded video clips.


And if you pass also the parameter, "showinfo=1", when creating the player, the list of video thumbnails will be permanently visible by clicking in the playlist icon appearing on the bottom right of the YouTube player.


If you want to embed such a playlist use this syntax:
 

**<iframe width="560" height="315"
src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/?listType=user_uploads&list=RobinGood&showinfo=1" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>***


and replace "RobinGood" with any YouTube user id.


Alternatively, replace listType=user with listType=search or listType=user_uploads to get specific terms searched and aggregated or to showcase all the uploads of a certain YouTube user.


Here is another example: http://www.youtube.com/embed/?listType=search&list=news%20curation&showinfo=1 - here I have changed the listType to "search" and have used as query terms "news curation". Check the result.
