YouTube has come out with a new feature for users of mobile phones and PDAs with video cameras that would enable uploading of videos directly to the service. Users have to send videos as an attachment to a specially developed e-mail address, which later will be uploaded to the service. The new service is free to avail of for anyone and everyone.
By devising a simpler method of uploading mobile videos, YouTube says it aims to develop a greater number of the spontaneous and blunt videos the entertainment site has become known for. Company statistics claim that YouTube receives approximately 12 million unique users, and its videos are seen about 1.2 billion times per month.
