This video tutorial describes how you may easily smooth-out and fix your shaky video footage captured with hand-held video cameras and cellphones with the help of YouTube’s online video editor. Stabilization makes your videos worth watching! What you see below is a short 20-second video clip that was shot using a mobile phone camera and uploaded directly to YouTube without any editing. As you may have noticed, the video is available in HD quality but it’s a bit shaky and that’s because I was holding the camera in my hands (instead of using a tripod) and was also walking during the entire recording. The video shakiness would have been even more had I used the zoom function of the camera. This problem is often referred as the shaky camera syndrome and affects almost all home videos that are shot with hand-held video cameras and smartphones.
Video content is exploding over the web. It is likely that you have recorded a lot of files over the years and are looking at ways to summarize them into short capsules. Well, HighlightCam is such a service and they even have a HighlightCam API to go along with it. HighlightCam , as the site namesuggests, is a video summarization service that uses an algorithm to shorten the length of your video to a fraction of the original. Their algorithm picks out the parts that are most interesting, taking into account motion and audio criteria, and discards all the rest.
