YouTube will allow creators to remix YouTube videos into short films
YouTube will allow creators to create YouTube shorts using other YouTube videos. An extension of the platform’s remix feature which allows users to sample audio from other videos, the feature will allow users to create short films using segments from other eligible videos and short films on YouTube, pursuant to a Tech Crunch report. The short will be attributed to the original video from the source creator.
“Some videos may be unavailable depending on who claimed copyright ownership or their privacy settings. For example, videos claimed by a third-party copyright holder and private videos may not be available. We also allow creators to restrict the use of audio from their long-form videos in other people’s shorts,” YouTube explained in a post.
Creators can limit the use of their videos for sampling. Shorts are automatically enabled for sampling on YouTube, and creators cannot disable them. For existing long videos on their channel, they can limit sampling in YouTube Studio.
The video remix feature will be rolling out to iOS users in the coming weeks, and Android will follow later this year. YouTube is also making Shorts available on the web and tablets, with a new Shorts tab appearing on all devices over the coming weeks. the Edge reported.
