YouTube prepping Fan Funding, Creator Studio for iOS, more

In addition to the new Sirius XM “The YouTube 15” show coming next month, the video service has taken the wraps off some planned features it’ll be rolling out in the near future. Among these is Creator Studio for iOS, the ability for fans to make donations to a channel, and more.

The new features were introduced at VidCon in Anaheim yesterday, with YouTube giving a sneak peak into what it has been working on. As mentioned, it plans to bring Creator Studio to iOS “in coming weeks” (the app is already available on Android), as well as a redesign to the desktop version of the management software.

In the coming months, YouTube will also be rolling out support for 48 and 60 frames-per-second, something that will follow the addition of sound effects to the Audio Library. Fan Funding will also be arriving for YouTube creators, allowing channel followers to make a donation. A half dozen or so creators will be getting the feature soon to test it.

There are plans for improving the ability to give creator credits to those who worked on a video, the timeframe and details for which are scarce at the moment. Info Cards are inbound, and soon fans will be able to submit their own subtitles to videos. Rounding it all out is a promise that playlists will get more creation options.
