YouTube Helps Media Use Citizen Journalism With YouTube Direct

YouTube recently announced YouTube Direct which they call “a new tool that allows media organizations to request, review and rebroadcast YouTube clips directly from YouTube users.”

Here is a little video from YouTube talking about how the process works.

Key features of YouTube Direct include:

  • Built on the YouTube API, this 100% open-source solution provides you with an easily-integrated audience engagement platform for your website
  • The customizable interface allows you to tailor the look and feel of the tool precisely to your audience
  • Visitors can answer your call for content by uploading their videos to YouTube via your site without leaving the page
  • A moderation panel enables your editors to review and approve/reject all submitted videos, deciding which ones meet your organization’s editorial criteria
  • All videos approved by your editors include a link back to your site when viewed on YouTube

Seems pretty kool and a great tool for media outlets to use to help monitor and make sure the are grabbing good content from those out there wanting to share their information. I look forward to seeing this in action.
