YouTube Unveils Real-time Webcam Recording Feature

So without major announcements or anything of that sort, YouTube decided it’d spruce up its site a bit. One of the major new features is an ability called Quick Capture. If you have a webcam, you can now record quick clips right to YouTube without having to upload anything. Just visit the URL, fill out your description, tags, and other information, and then allow the Adobe Flash applet to access your webcam.

Look! It’s you! Now you can easily record your rants, political tirades, and short stories in real-time without the need to upload a video file. This is an interesting new feature that could do a lot for the video community.
