YouTube Direct 2.0 Now Available

Google yesterday announced the launch of YouTube Direct 2.0, an upgraded version of a tool that allows media organizations to request, review and re-broadcast user-submitted videos on their own websites.

According to a post on Google's Citizen Tube blog, YouTube Direct 2.0 includes "substantial upgrades that make it easier for news organizations to test and customize the platform."

Among many back-end upgrades, the new version also allows citizen reporters to submit photos, view and edit video captions and upload multiple videos on a single page. The mobile application code is now available for both the iPhone and Android.

Google says there are nearly 400 news partners on YouTube including launch partners (ABC News, the Huffington Post, NPR, Politico, the San Francisco Chronicle and the Washington Post) and many other news organizations and websites such as Tribune Company, Gannett, Al Jazeera and ITN News.
