StepUp.io is a new site that lets you easily pick any YouTube video, pick the specific segments you want to show from it, and then put them all together. That ability could be useful, though I think the option of making the segments “looping” is just an annoying feature.
What would really make StepUp.io very helpful would be if they added the ability to get segments from multiple videos and put them together — now that would make it stand out in the crowd of other sites on The Best Tools For Cutting-Out & Saving Portions Of Online Videos (Or Annotating Them) list. [NOTE: Staff from the site left a comment explaining that they do allow this function — check out his explanation]
Here’s a short video on the tool, and I’d recommend skipping the first thirty seconds or so…
Thanks to TechCrunch for the tip.
Thank you very much for your write up. Please allow me to follow up the couple of points.
1. Loop/No loop = I noticed that the stepup usage changes massively whether you are learner or teacher. My reason behind “looping” is so that you can keep learning the section until you master, which is quite popular feature among dance/language learners. I got some request from teachers to “stop” so that it can be used for flipped classroom. You can change the behavior by “loop/stop/auto” select box.
2. Get segments from multiple videos and put them together = We do!! That’s what “tags” are for. http://www.stepup.io/tags/LoveNeverFeltSoGood and this is how you use it http://www.stepup.io/videos/42878d5f28240487
