Global video-sharing platform YouTube to roll out green screen feature for iOS users – Tech Observer

The global platform for online video creators using YouTube Shorts will soon get a new feature to embed other users’ content into their videos. This comes after the Google-owned video streaming platform announced the rollout of the green screen feature for YouTube Shorts users.

New feature will allow creators to include up to 60 seconds of an eligible video YouTube video on demand or short that can be used as a background for their original content. YouTube’s new green screen feature allows creators to embed both video and audio from a sampled clip.

Currently, Youtube has rolled out this feature only for iOS users. This feature will be enabled for Android users at a later date. The company has yet to confirm the official Android launch date.

Users can access the green screen feature through the three-dot menu available in the YouTube Shorts app. Online content creators can also turn off the Green Screen Sharing feature through YouTube Studio if they don’t want others to use their long-form videos on one or more shorts. However, creators will be able to see a link to the original video in the Shorts player whenever someone uses other people’s content.

Along with the Green Screen feature, the Google-owned video platform also announced the Cut feature last month. Creators can use this feature to add up to five seconds of footage from an eligible YouTube short or video to their clip. A similar feature called Remixing has played a huge role in TikTok’s success. To compete with TikTok, Youtube is following suit by offering similar tools to its users.
