When Google in December released the YouTube Capture iOS app, the company instantly goy my attention. I love its sleek design, simplified user interface and the effectiveness of having an app dedicated to recording and uploading video clips to YouTube. It would be a must-have if not for the inexplicable lack of support for 1080 uploads – the software would limit any upload to 720p.

Not anymore. Today, a new maintenance released has been pushed which now lets you upload footage in the full HD 1,920-by-1,080 pixel resolution, along with a few other tweaks. More details right after the break…

In addition to 1080p uploads, YouTube Capture version 1.1 also offers improved audio sync, a more detailed upload feedback and the ability to share your clips on social networks after uploading, along with the usual bug fixes and stability improvements.

YouTube Capture is a free download from the App Store. It’s optimized for the iPhone 5 and compatible with the iPhone 3GS and up and third-gen iPod touch or later running iOS 5 or later.

    This App is brilliant now, only thing I hate is not being able to turn off Autofocus!

    This should have been included from the beginning, but at least they’ve added it now.
    Gonna update the app and remove it from the folder for apps I keep on my iPhone to see once they become usable thanks to release notes. 😛

  • Experiment: Download video from Canon 5d MK II (or III) on iPhone then upload it from YouTube capture, then upload the same video from your desktop and compare the clarity, the bitrate and the file sizes.
    Could someone do this?
