Integration of YouTube and Google Drive

  • Introduction:
  • YouTube?

    YouTube is a website that allows users to share and view videos. YouTube was founded in 2005 by three former PayPal employees, Steve Chen, Chad Hurley, and Jawed Karim, who each received $1.65 million for a one-third stake in the company. The idea for YouTube was born out of two separate frustrations. Karim had experienced difficulty finding video clips of the Indian film star Amitabh Bachchan, while Hurley and Chen wanted to share videos with each other on their computers.

    YouTube first launched as an invite-only beta, available only to a small number of people who applied for access. It officially launched on December 15, 2006. The website then went into beta testing in May 2007, opened up to everyone in March 2008, and reached 1 billion views in mid-2010. In November of 2011 the site was at the peak of its popularity when it was announced that it had reached 1 billion unique users monthly.It is estimated that in 2010 YouTube consumed as much bandwidth as the entire Internet did in 2000.

    YouTube has become a very popular service. As of July 2012, YouTube has more than 1 billion users and 300 hours of video are uploaded every minute. YouTube has become the third largest search engine in the world behind Google and Yahoo! so it must be doing something right.

    Google Drive?

    Google Drive is a cloud storage service run by Google. Users can store files in a Google Drive account and access them from any computer with an internet connection. Files stored on Google Drive can be shared publicly or with specific people or groups of people. A person who stores his/her files on Google Drive can edit them from any computer using the Google Docs, Sheets, or Slides applications.

    Drive offers its services to any user with a Gmail account. Once you have a Gmail account, you can use your Google Drive. You also have to have a Google account in order to use Google Drive. You can create a new Google account or sign in if you already have one. When you sign in to your Google account, you automatically get access to your Drive account.

    Google Drive offers storage space on demand and does not require an upfront payment or long-term commitment from users. It allows users to upload any file type except audio and video files which must be either converted to Google’s supported formats or linked from an external source like YouTube or SoundCloud. Videos will be automatically transcoded into a format playable by Chromecast users without having to transcode the video again at the receiver end.

  • Integration of YouTube and Google Drive:
  • Integrating Youtube and Google Drive would allow users to store all their videos in one place instead of having to go to multiple sites for them. This would make it easier for users to update certain videos on their blogs or social media accounts because they could just update them on Youtube and they would be updated across the board on their social media accounts as well as their blogs. This would be especially useful for educators because they could keep all their educational videos in one place that wouldn’t take up a lot of hard drive space on there computers and would make it easy to teach students how to find videos online without having to give them instructions on how to do it themselves..

    Another benefit of integrating Youtube and Google Drive would be that if you had a ton of videos saved that were no longer needed and were taking up space on your computer you could easily delete them all using one program rather than several different ones. Also if you wanted to share several videos with someone else you could just upload them all at once and send them a link rather than having to send them links for each individual video because they would all be in one place rather than scattered around different sites.

  • Benefits of Integration of YouTube and Google Drive:
  • Integration of Youtube and Google Drive would make it easier for users to manage there videos online. They would be able to access all their videos from one location rather then having to go to multiple sites for them. This would be especially helpful for students because they could save all there favorite videos in one location so they don’t have to go searching through multiple sites for them because they know exactly where the videos are located at all times. This would also come in handy for teachers who want there students to watch specific videos online in class but don’t want them watching inappropriate material since Youtube has many inappropriate videos that aren’t filtered out by there parental contrp settings so they would be able to just pick specific videos out that they wanted their students to watch without having to worry about what kind of material was being viewed by their students.
