YouTube Enables Mobile Video Uploads
YouTube has introduced a new feature for users of mobile phones and PDAs with video cameras that would allow uploading of videos directly to the service. Users would send videos as an attachment to a specially created e-mail address, which in turn would be uploaded to the service. The new service is free for anyone to use.
By introducing an easier way to upload mobile videos, YouTube says it would likely create a higher number of the spontaneous and candid videos the entertainment site has become known for. The site receives about 12 million unique users, and its videos are seen about 1.2 billion times per month, according to company statistics.
