Although Microsoft seem far more eager to talk about a GoPro viewer coming to Xbox 360, the latest post on the Xbox Wire also shares a few rather exciting details about the future of sharing videos on Xbox Live, and the key word is YouTube.
Until now, getting your console videos onto YouTube meant either uploading to SkyDrive or Facebook and then re-downloading, or using an external capture device to capture the footage. All told it was quite a laborious process just to show your stuff on the biggest video sharing website.
But Microsoft are changing that by adding an option within the YouTube app to upload straight to the service, after editing with Upload Studio. They’re also adding achievements, snap mode and the ability to pin individual videos.
Sony announced that they’d allow you to copy recorded videos to an external storage device with the 1.70 PS4 update, which is coming soon, but they really need to deliver on their pre-release announcements and match Microsoft with YouTube support of their own to make that share button worthy of its place on the controller.
