    We've seen twitter take a stab at video sharing through their Vine service, and then it got plagued with porn in just a couple of days and became irrelevant. Then came Instagram video to compete, and even though the service is ok, it's far from perfect. Still, with the success of YouTube, you'd assume that video sharing is the next hot thing, and it seems that the founders of YouTube feel the same. Chad Hurley and Steve Chen, better known as the founders of YouTube, have now launched a new iOS app called Mixbit, which is funded by Google Ventures. This is very similar to Vine in that you ...

    The Android YouTube app may get the job done when it comes to playing videos, but the way the app currently operates, it's of limited functionality while content is actually being played. Sure, you can scroll through comments and related videos, but if you get it in your mind to, say, search for another clip, you need to stop playback in order to check out results. Well, if what one tipster has been saying is true, that could soon be all about to change, and YouTube could be stepping up its multitasking game. Reportedly, the current build of YouTube being tested in-house allows users to ...

    Just the other day, we saw Microsoft release an update to its recently redone Windows Phone YouTube app, removing one of the features Google found objectionable. As you might remember, the app initially generated controversy due to how it allowed users to download videos to their phones, and how it played clips without the advertisements YouTube attached to them. Microsoft dropped the download feature, but insisted that it couldn't very well get those ads working unless Google wanted to open up and share some YouTube APIs with the company. We've been waiting to hear what Google's response ...

    In case you haven't been following, Microsoft and Google have gotten themselves into a minor tiff over YouTube. It started earlier this month when Microsoft updated its YouTube app for Windows Phone. This brought a lot of new functionality, but as was quickly pointed out, seemed to violate some YouTube policies, specifically with how it allowed downloads and didn't display advertisements connected to clips. Then Google got all leagal-threateny with Microsoft, which both caused Microsoft to call Google out on hypocrisy following some of Larry Page's comments at Google I/O in regards to ...

    One week ago, Microsoft came out with a really nice overhaul for its Windows Phone YouTube app. It wasn't long after that when we learned of a possibly big problem for this new release, as some of its behavior appeared to conflict with YouTube API terms and conditions. We wondered if Google might go so far as to take steps to disable the app. Sure enough, Google has sent Microsoft a cease-and-desist letter, insisting that Microsoft kill the app. Just as expected, Google takes issue with Microsoft pulling an end-run on content producers that rely on advertising for income, as the Windows ...

    A couple days back we saw Microsoft release a serious overhaul to the Windows Phone YouTube app, bringing a lot of new functionality to an app that was previously a bit of a disappointment. While early reaction from users has been positive, will these good times be short-lived? It's since come to light that Microsoft's new app violates a number of YouTube's terms of service, potentially setting the stage for Google taking steps to disable the app's access to its content. The most glaring violations are the ability of the app to let the user download content to their phones, and that the ...

    Like so many other Windows Phone apps, the implementation of YouTube available to users of the platform left a lot to be desired. Instead of a Google-crafted joint like you'd see on Android, this Microsoft-developed version was, at best, a pale imitation of proper YouTube, pointing you to the web-based site. While this remains a Microsoft project, today a new release of the app arrives that goes a long way towards bringing Windows Phone an up-to-date YouTube experience. The updated app adds a new playlist look, allows for background playback of videos when you just want to listen to their ...
