This convenient app lets you shoot and share your videos – not just on YouTube, but on major social networks as well.

Many shoot-and-share-video options are available via the Apple App Store. But none of them had YouTube in its name until now. Google, the parent of YouTube, which is practically synonymous with home-made video, has released YouTube Capture (go.macworld.com/capture), a free app for shooting and sharing video on your iPhone or iPod touch.

Getting started with Capture is no-sweat simple. Download the app, sign into your Gmail account, and connect your account with your YouTube channel.

Preferences and settings

At the Get Started screen, you can begin swiping your way through preferences such as ‘Enhance Automatically’ and ‘Stabilize’. You can choose to see all of your existing videos through the app by enabling step lets you define where else you want to share your videos the options include Google+, Facebook, and Twitter besides YouTube, where the video will post by default. You can upload your video simultaneously to all of the sites you check during setup.

Settings under the Gear icon let you choose whether to have the landscape lock on or off, and whether to rotate the device as a signal to begin recording.

The upper left corner of the app’s interface allows you to decide whether to illuminate the scene by turning on the iPhone’s light, and whether to use its rear or front-facing camera.

The red Record button is hard to miss – it’s mighty and bold.

Editing

YouTube Capture offers very little in the way of editing options. But you can use the Enhance button for general video corrections. If you chose color correction and image stabilization in the settings, the app will also do those fixes for you. And you can trim the video with Trim sliders.

The Trim feature in YouTube Capture is nondestructive – it will not actually cut your video to the trimmed size, but only upload the portion of the video that you didn’t trim. That means you can export the entire video to another editor, and have a record of your shoot in its entirely.

To let you sound a little more polished, Google includes YouTube Soundtracks that you can attach, spanning moods such as Ambient, Blues, Classical, Electronic, Folk, Melancholic, Happy, and more. There’s only one musical selection for each category, however, and no option to use your own music for the soundtrack.

YouTube Capture includes some basic privacy features. The info and settings pane lets you specify whether you want the video to be public, unlisted (with access by link only), or private.

When you finish recording, tap the Upload button. Tap the top to review your video, the app then prompts you to enter a title for the piece.

The Location Sharing button will record your current location, if you wish. You can add keyword tags to your video, assign it a category, and attach a Standard or Creative Commons license to your movie.

Once you click the Upload button, the video will start uploading to your YouTube channel. A video of 17 seconds’ duration took less than a minute to upload. A 30-second video, shot and uploaded under suboptimal conditions in a subway, was produced in under 5 minutes.

Minor issues

Though recording a short video was easy, quick, and satisfying, I did run into a few difficulties in my testing of the app. Apart from one problem that has since been fixed, however, they were all minor.

It seems to take the YouTube site some time to process all of the components of a video, as I discovered when, after creating and uploading one, I decided to go back and add a soundtrack. Initially the soundtrack wouldn’t play, but a few minutes later it did.

Another limitation is that YouTube Capture restricts the display resolutions of uploaded videos to 480p and 720p.

YouTube Capture is optimized for the iPhone 5 and runs on devices with iOS 5 or later. It’s compatible with iPhone 3GS and later, as well as with the iPod touch, but it isn’t available for the iPad.
