YouTube makes “videos” without a camera

“No video camera? No problem!” says online video service  YouTube. “Create original videos with your own photos, clips or just an idea.”

xtranormal creates animations from text scripts.

 

As more than 35 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every minute, the company says, “it’s hard to believe that anyone is left out of the YouTube experience. But the truth is, sites like YouTube do largely leave out people who don’t have a video camera.”

And so Google’s video service launched youtube.com/create, amalgamating the video creation sites Xtranormal, Stupeflix and GoAnimate with which anyone can “make personal videos or animations.” GoAnimate and Xtranormal Movie Maker create animated videos with just a text storyline. Stupeflix combines images into a video slideshow.
