YouTube Will Now Allow Creators to Add Midrolls, Finish Screens and Captions Whereas Their Video is Processing
YouTube has released a new update that allows YouTubers to place add-on features like mid-roll commercial breaks, credits, info cards, etc. while their video is being processed, which could prove to be a significant time saver in the app.
As YouTubes Conor Kavanagh explains in the clip above that the new process saves creators time by allowing them to incorporate these processes into their upload flow instead of having to wait for the video to become fully available before adding these features.
This may not seem like a great addition, but as anyone who regularly uploads YouTube clips knows, this will be of great help.
Not only is this a time saver, it’s a workflow process – sometimes when you start a video upload and have to leave it, you can get distracted from other tasks and forget to add all those extra items, or you may run out of time for example, to add captions because you have to come back to the task at a later time
The update will fix this and be a welcome change for YouTubers. The new option is now available in the YouTube Studio process.
In addition, Kavanagh also confirms YouTube’s announcement earlier this week that Shorts will now be made available in 23 new regions.
TechCrunch reported Monday that shorts will be available soon Users in the UK, Canada and Latin America, and India and the US.
The full list for the expanded rollout also includes the Cayman Islands, Aruba and Bolivia – all nations where Shorts are now available can be viewed here.
