So, you want to be YouTube famous? Well, you may be in luck. The video-sharing site is making it a bit easier to achieve viral fame.
On Thursday at the annual VidCon conference in Anaheim, Calif. – a three-day convention of about 18,000 YouTube celebrities, fans, and everyone in between – Google-owned YouTube officially announced new features to help you better manage, stream, and fund your YouTube projects.
Need to tweak your YouTube persona on the go? There's an app for that. The YouTube Creator Studio app lets users view analytics and manage video content from Android and iOS mobile devices. Need to stream video-game footage that's just as high quality as when you're actually playing? YouTube will also begin supporting videos at 48 and 60 frames per second. Need to fund your YouTube channel and don't feel like going through outside sites such as Kickstarter or Indiegogo? YouTube is also testing a new Fan Funding feature for desktop and Android that lets users donate to their favorite channels.
