YouTube beta testing TikTok video size, just like Instagram Reels

Published

If you’re all about the content created in TikTok but you’re not excited about the negative news, YouTube might have your back. An update this week from Google’s YouTube Help group showed how they were “testing out a way to record multi-segment videos.” These videos will have “a maximum length of 15 seconds” – with as many tiny videos (inside a total of 15 seconds) as you like.

“We’re testing out a new way for creators to easily record multiple clips directly in the YouTube mobile app and upload as one video,” wrote a YouTube representative. “If you’re in this experiment, you’ll see an option to ‘create a video’ in the mobile upload flow.”

If you see the “create a video” option in your YouTube video, you’ll tap or hold the record button to record a clip. Once the first clip is done, tap again. You can also hold the button down and release to end a clip before 15 seconds are done.

UPDATE: You’ll tap to record a full 15 seconds, or hold the button down to record something smaller.

Per Google, if you’d like to upload a longer video, you’ll still have the option to do so “by uploading from your phone gallery.” This is all going to appear in both the Android and iOS version of the YouTube app for “a small group of people” while Google gathers feedback.

Instagram’s TikTok clone “Reels” also has the 15 second video default as TikTok. It’s a 15-second video extravaganza! Facebook also has a sort of TikTok rival in the system called Collab!

This week was big for TikTok as the business was given a stern warning from Apple about using the clipboard in iOS. TikTok also launched “TikTok for Business” for brands that want to use TikTok to … dance for the TikTok community. Or compete with Snapchat with new augmented reality advertisements – either way!

Motorola Moto X30 Pro Will Have An Unusual Camera System

Published

on

This is just the tip of the iceberg for the Moto X30 Pro. The strangest thing about the model won’t be its unusually large camera sensor, especially since Xiaomi already claimed that crown. Instead, it will be the use of three focal lengths in the camera system that could mean the removal of one traditional part of that group.

Motorola’s Weibo account revealed that the Moto X30 Pro will have a 35mm focal point at its widest. This will be joined by a 50mm telephoto that could have a 2x magnification, as well as an 80mm longer telephoto option. If this is an accurate description, it would suggest that the phone will ditch the ultra-wide shooter in favor of two telephoto cameras when some of its peers opt to eschew telephoto cameras to make way for a macro alternative.

Whether this will give the Moto X30 Pro an actual advantage over other high-end phones this year remains to be seen, literally. It sounds almost like a mixed bag, at least in the camera department, though the rest of the rumored specs are on par for a 2022 flagship. The Moto X30 Pro, which could go by the name Motorola Frontier in global markets, is expected to run on a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor, bear a 6.67-inch 144Hz OLED screen, and boast 125W super-fast charging for its modest 4,500mAh battery.

How To Fix Amazon Prime Video Not Streaming In 4K

Published

on

Not all Amazon Prime Video titles are available in 4K quality. Older movies and shows often do not support that format, and even some newer flicks will still be unavailable for a variety of reasons ranging from licensing to technical difficulties. As a result, your title of choice might look less-than-perfect, not due to a fault on Amazon’s end, but simply because that title may not support 4K in the first place. 

Amazon has a list of titles available in 4K, so checking whether the one you’re trying to watch is, is fairly easy. You can see all the 4K offerings by heading over to the official Amazon website. The list is not very intuitive in the sense that you can’t check for specifics within the results as this is already a narrowed-down list. However, you can also simply type in the title of your movie or show into the search bar above to check whether it’s available on Prime Video and in 4K.

You can also search directly on Amazon Prime Video. Any variation of “4K,” “4K movies ultra HD,” “4K film,” or even something more specific like “4K romantic comedies” should produce a list of titles that you can watch right now. If you managed to locate your title on one of these lists and yet it still looks underwhelming, there may be other issues at hand.
