How to watch Full Screen YouTube videos on Facebook

Whenever I see an interesting or a funny video on my Facebook feed, I share it on my wall for others to enjoy it. You might also be doing it. Don’t you? 😉

You might have a seen a YouTube video go viral on FB as this cycle goes on repeating but when you come across any such video, you cannot see the video in full screen right from Facebook. Instead, you need to click the video and view it on YouTube. Not only that, sometime while doing that, YouTube starts streaming the video again from the start, which is very irritating. So, instead of getting into this hassle, you end up watching it in small screen within Facebook. You will not have to do that after you read this article.

Youtube testing its new Live streaming Feature

For the last some days, Youtube and Google are creating waves all over the internet with Google Instant launched last week and then soon after that a college student became the talk of the town by creating Youtube Instant.

Google is again in the limelight with Youtube, the runaway leader in online video, starting its trials of a new live-streaming service, potentially laying the groundwork for a new heavyweight in the Webcasting space.
youtube_logoYouTube has long been rumoured to be preparing a live-streaming service, now that it is officially starting the trials, should Youtube take this to the next level with its new Live streaming, it is sure to enter into direct competition with providers such as Ustream, Livestream and Justin.tv.

If we look at the past, Youtube has already provided the live streaming for some important events like the U2 and the Indian Premier League Cricket matches.

The first trials of the Youtube live streaming platform have begun starting 8:00 am Pacific time on 13th September 2010, with a full complement of programming lined up from the alpha testers.

YouTube has brought in four content partners: Howcast, Next New Networks, Rocketboom and Young Hollywood. The test platform will be live for the next two days.

As per the official announcement by Youtube,

This new platform integrates live streaming directly into YouTube channels; all broadcasters need is a webcam or external USB/FireWire camera. Included in the test is a “Live Comments” module which lets you engage with the broadcaster and the broader YouTube community. For the purpose of the trial, this offering will only be available today and tomorrow. Based on the results of this initial test, we’ll evaluate rolling out the platform more broadly to our partners worldwide.

“Bear with us as we test this new platform as there may be some bumps along the way. Please share your feedback in the comments section,” YouTube said.

Below is the schedule of programming over the next two days of the Youtube Live streaming trials. Click on Watch Now to see the live streaming for one of the 4 content partners :).

What do you think about Youtube live with some existing live service providers like Ustream, Livestream and Justin.tv already in the market. Is Youtube live going to make a mark here? Do share your views in the comment section below.

After Google, now it is Youtube’s turn to do the “Instant” Magic

You have heard about Google Instant. Now, how about Youtube Instant?

Yesterday only, we informed you about the recent major change done to the Google Search by the Search engine giant, this week in the name of Google Instant. Now it is the turn of Youtube to do the Instant magic. And, the most amazing thing is that this new functionality added to Youtube has not been done by Google, but by a brilliant Computer Science College student, Feross Aboukhadijeh of Stanford University.

Youtube instant - real time youtube video search

Google Instant – which allows you to search dynamically from the moment you start typing keywords, was announces on Wednesday this week, the young lad decided to build YouTube Instant, a site that lets you search across the vast YouTube video database in real-time just like Google instant.

Visit Youtube Instant now and see the Magic…

The whole thing started as a bet between two friends in which Feross challenged that he can build Youtube instant in less than 1 hour, which works in real-time just like Google Instant. Feross took 3 hours to build the Youtube instant; he lost the bet but what he won has been commendable.

The young college student has caught the attention of the press amongst the tech world, making him famous in less than a day. More important for a CS undergrad is that the development caught the eyes of the YouTube co-founder Chad Hurley which impressed him enough to tweet a job offer to him.

Below is the conversation exchanged between Feross and Chad Hurley on Twitter:

The problem is that Feross is already working for Facebook on a secret project in which he is “building something really cool that’s going to be released soon, but I can’t share any details because it’s top secret,” as he mentioned in an email interview.

The awesome work done by Feross in making the Youtube Instant was covered by almost all the big names in the press covering the news about tech world like Washington Post, New York Times, Mashable, Reddit, PC Magazine, NDTV, TechMeme, Geek.com, Softpedia, Engadget.

Feross expresses the whole episode in his own words on his blog:

After updating my status, I went to sleep. I awoke Friday morning to an inbox full of people congratulating me on YouTube Instant, sending me links to press coverage, and sharing it by the thousands on Twitter and Facebook.

Aboukhadijeh announced the launch of YouTube Instant on Y Combinator’s Hacker News feed, a news aggregation site similar to Digg and Reddit. It behaves much the same way Google Instant does — as a viewer types in the video they are looking for, the engine guesses the video and begins playing it immediately.

Watching the whole incidence, I can assure you of one thing: You want a job at Google, just code a few lines of awesome creativity. Who knows, you get a tweet from the CEO offering you a direct job 😉

What do you think !! 🙂
