Being a creator is hard. There is always so much to keep up with, the feeling of constantly creating, and wondering if it’s worth it. But then YouTube will do something cool to make your experience better or you finally get a good groove for content that is making it easy for the YouTube algorithm to serve to viewers and it all seems to come together.
Wherever you are on your journey, at TubeBuddy we are here for you every step of the way to celebrate your milestones and help you reach your goals. In this blog, YouTube has some fun improvements and a really cool way for you to be a part of the insiders club.
New Blur Editor
There are often times when we film things and need to blur them out. This could be faces of people who need or want to have aminimety, addresses, license plates and more. YouTube is now offering a blur tool with oval and rectangular options so you can edit your videos in YouTube studio as needed. There are many custom options and detection tools and you can set how long and where you need it to be.
Adjustable Timestamps for Video Copyright Edits
Dealing with Copyright claims is never fun but with the Adjustable Timestamps for Video Copyright Edits it is getting easier to edit within YouTube studio so you do not lose your views and comments. In the claim details, you can select to mute or edit out the problematic area of the video. You can adjust the needed change by selecting the copyright violation by entering the time stamps. This is available to 100% of creators.
Improving the YouTube User and Creator Experience
It can often seem like big online companies are making changes all the time and it can be hard to keep up with and possibly not going over well (cough new Facebook interface cough cough). But at YouTube they have specialists dedicated to making your experience the best it can be. These specialists focus on specific areas of YouTube and then come together as the different departments to create something better for users and creators.
YouTube can’t make better products without Creators to test out features and give feedback. If you want to be a part of the research team to make YouTube better you can apply to be a UXR participant: https://youtube.com/creatorresearch/
