03-29-21 – YouTube Shorts, New DJI Drone, & NetFlix Sharing News
Welcome to the button monkeys channel. My name is dennis and today i’m going to start off with google officially announcing youtube shorts in the us as a beta feature. Youtube shorts is a lot like tick, tock videos. Google describes it as vertical videos up to 60 seconds in length, in addition to showing on your channel, viewers may find your short form videos on the home, page short shelf and tap into vertical viewing experience made for short videos while they continue to know content created Using the shorts camera is limited to 15 seconds, so, while anything up to 16 seconds can appear on the shelf, we recommend that you focus on 15. Second videos youtube shorts. Has your typical feature set as upvote down vote, commenting sharing, adding audio again, just like tiktok youtube is famous for copying other successful services and hoping that they garner the same level success that they had, such as youtube gaming, which died four years after it was announced, Which was a competitor to twitch and we had youtube reels, which was a competitor to snapchat and was later rebranded to youtube stories, lets users upload videos and have them expire seven days after they’re posted now we have youtube shorts. Now shorts is in beta, which means not. Everyone will have access to it. At the moment, google and youtube have not really mentioned when it’s going to come out of beta, but if you do have access to it, you’ll be able to see it through the youtube.
App as you keep scrolling down, i was able to see it on my iphone, but not able to see it through their website, which could be by design if it’s meant specifically for mobile. So the content you’re going to see in shorts is relative to the videos that you already see when you’re logged into youtube all depends on the topics that you’ve shown an interest. In going through many of the article comments, i have to agree with the majority of people on this. One youtube owns the market for videos. If someone wants to make a video for one minute, they can what’s the long game here for youtube shorts. It doesn’t make sense outside of google just raising their hand and saying yeah. We have this feature too. Moving on to drone news. Dji recently released their new fpv drone, naturally called dji fpv. Now, it’s, not your typical or intended to be a competitive drone and in typical dji fashion, it’s made for the beginner and the advanced flyer. The battery is 20 000 milliamps, which means it’ll last anywhere between 12 and 20 minutes, depending on how you’re flying the battery. Also has two rubber feet on the back, which acts as the back legs for the drone when it’s sitting on the ground, the camera can film 4k at 60 frames per second or 1080, with 120 frames per second and the verge reports. The camera is mounted on a one axis gimbal and it has a super wide view of 150 degrees compared to the 83 degrees you get on a mini 2.
, now there’s, no internal storage, but there is a micro sd slot which can take cards up to 256 Gigs, outside of that, the drone can go as fast as 86 miles an hour and go as far as 10.4 miles. I’Ll put a full link to the specs in the description below now, because this is an fpv drone. The goggles do come with it and you can connect that to your phone or your tablet using usbc. Unfortunately, that’s really the only way you can purchase it is through a combo which is about thirteen hundred dollars, but comes with everything you see here. Unfortunately, the combo doesn’t come with the joystick, which is arguably the most fun and interesting way to really fly this drone. But that’s going to run another 200 i’m really geeked about this release, not only because of how easy dji makes their drones to fly for idiots such as myself, but being able to throw some vr like goggles on and controlling it with a control. Stick i’m. All in my only complaint is the way that faa has been reducing the areas that people can fly without a specific license and that’s probably going to be the only reason i don’t go out and buy this drone right now. If you’re sharing your netflix password with someone you had to know this day was coming, a few users recently received this notice while trying to watch something on netflix. If you don’t live with the owner of this account, you need your own account to keep watching to continue.
The user will need to verify the account either through an email or a text. A netflix spokesperson was reported, saying this test is designed to help ensure that people using netflix accounts are authorized to do so back in 2019, chief product officer, greg peters, was asked about netflix sharing and his reply was. We continue to monitor it so we’re, looking at the situation and look into consumer friendly ways to push on the edges. So, while wasn’t an issue for them at that moment, you can definitely tell it was on netflix’s radar, so many streaming options available. Now prices have surpassed cable tv level and it’s estimated that roughly 35 percent of just millennials are sharing their passwords services, such as netflix disney plus apple tv plus, paramount plus peacock. Those are the ones that i can just think of it’s ridiculous. To expect everyone to pay for all of those services and it’s only going to push more piracy, i think studios have really misunderstood why people started cord cutting in the first place and it’s going to be interesting to see how this develops over the next few years. But that’s about it, folks i’ll put links to all the articles in the description below and i finally got my hands on a ps5, so you’re not going to want to miss that review or that giveaway again my name is dennis.
