Media Streaming App Younity Announces Automatic Discovery And Cataloguing of GoPro Video For Instant Streaming And Sharing Through Your Personal Cloud
Santa Monica, CA – July 22, 2014 – younity (www.getyounity.com), the service that lets people privately unify, access and share all their files via their own personal cloud, announced today that they have integrated with GoPro to automatically discover and catalogue all GoPro content, shot with the popular adventure camera, so that users can instantly stream or share the content on-demand.
GoPro cameras create rich, high-definition video that results in large files; often stored across multiple computers and external hard drives. Even short videos result in files so large they can’t be stored on a mobile device or free cloud service account. With this newest release from younity, GoPro users can now rely on younity to find and catalogue their GoPro content into a simple view they can browse; and like all media, GoPro content can be instantly streamed or shared from any iPhone or iPad – even when they are away from their computers.
“This was a particularly fun release for us. We’re a company of users, so it wasn’t just our users who asked for better categorization of their video – we wanted it too! GoPro is an exciting company that is pioneering user-generated content in whole new ways. The overlap with our users couldn’t have been a better match,” says Erik Caso, CEO and co-founder of younity.
Blake Shipman, Director and owner of Bshipmanfilms, added, “I’ve got tons of high quality video that I have created over the years stored across multiple computers and hard drives. younity gives me access to all of it with thinking about what device its stored on.” He continued, “Now I can stream and privately share my content right from my phone with the people that matter most, without being fearfull of people ripping it or re-sharing it. Younity is a game changer for all content creators out there.”
Caso continued, “Our users are producing so much video on a monthly basis it’s shocking. We’ve seen a 25% increase in the amount of video content people have in just the last 6 months. At this point, the average hard drive is 64% video content. We want to access this video on-demand, most often when we are not at home. So the next time you’re at dinner with friends and the conversation turns towards your video, younity has you covered.”
This new release not only auto-discovers and catalogues GoPro content, but also does the same for home video, movies and TV shows. This results in all the video a user has being automatically organized for them to browse, stream and share. “We promised more was coming related to video. We’re still not done – there’s much more on our roadmap,” says Caso. This release builds upon younity’s recent inclusion of streaming iTunes purchased content, including movies and TV shows.
