In an effort to make it easier for people to publish their own videos (and not copyrighted material) YouTube will now be letting people record directly from a webcam and microphone straight into YouTube via Arstechnica.com
YouTube quietly added a new feature today to its popular user-generated video site today called Quick Capture, which allows users to record video directly to YouTube from webcams plugged into their computers. This new feature eliminates steps in the process of producing video content, making it easier than ever to publish videos to the web.
The Quick Capture tool uses an Adobe Flash Player API to connect to the user's webcam. The user must first grant the Flash Player permission to use the camera and microphone—and must do so every time—before using the service.
Side note have you seen how much ZeFrank wants to advertise on his site?
