Earlier this year, rumors came out that YouTube was gearing up for a redesign, which would highlight sets of channels around various topics to provide a more TV-like experience. The sources of these rumors were “people familiar with the matter,” as reported by the Wall Street Journal, who said at the time, that YouTube was looking to introduce 20 or so “premium channels” that would feature 5 to 10 hours of professionally-produced programming a week.
It appears that such a scenario may be getting closer to reality, though now the number is a little lower, as the Journal is saying (once again, according to “people familiar with the matter”) that YouTube is finalizing contracts for its first over over a dozen channels.
Along with new 3D conversion and editing tools, YouTube announced last week that it was removing the video time limit for verified accounts. before, the limit was 15 minutes, but now, if you meet the company’s criteria, you can provide longer content (complete with a new resumable uploads feature). more longer-form content, sounds like a good way to get more out of such a channel selection offering.
Google has also been said to be a suitor for a possible Hulu sale, though recent reports indicate that the sale itself is in jeopardy.
YouTube also greatly expanded its movie offerings this year, adding new release rental into the mix. That along with various live streams of events, including popular concerts, and these new channels really drive home the point that Google is serious about making YouTube a serious media force, and not just a big (really, really big) collection of cat videos and other user-generated content. They want YouTube to compete with your cable and satellite providers.
They certainly have a lot broader selection of content already.
When YouTube celebrated its sixth birthday earlier this year, it said that it exceeded over 48 hours worth of video uploaded per minute (a 100% year-over-year increase). They also said they were getting 3 billion daily views to go along with that.
A great feature of the Flip UltraHD camcorder is that it can be used with AA-sized rechargeable batteries. the batteries can be easily charged up right in the unit by connecting the camcorder’s USB connector to the USB port on a computer. If time needed for charging batteries is posing to be an issue, you can also install and use regular AA batteries in the unit as well.
The Flip UltraHD camcorder is extremely portable weighing at just 6.1 ounces. This model is heavier then some other camcorders of its class but the extra weight is quite negligible. Operation of the buttons is easier because they are bigger. If you’ve had problems trying to find buttons or hold on to the camcorder, the Flip has buttons that are rubberized and a matte finish that makes holding on to the camcorder very easy.
The UltraHD camcorder shoots 720p video at 30fps that is H.264 compressed, and encoded as a MPEG-4. If you’re concerned about recording time this camcorder has an 8GB internal memory that allows for the recording of over 2 hours of video. that is generally enough video time for any event before needing to download the videos onto a computer or disk. the process of shooting and transferring videos from the Flip UltraHD camcorder to your computer or uploading them to another video-file-sharing site has been simplified. all in all, with a relatively low price tag, reliable performance, small size and useful feature, this model proves to be a real winner.
