YouTube Launches Face Blurring Tool to Keep Protesters Anonymous
YouTube on Wednesday began letting people blur faces in videos they upload to the website, which has become a major platform for sharing clips of dramatic news events.
Video editing options at YouTube were expanded to include a "Blur All Faces" button. People will get previews of videos with the blurred effects prior to deciding whether to publish them at YouTube.

this tool is going to be coupled with a complaint form, and they can sensor anyone they don't like.

SO if a really bad thing is caught on camera in public, If the person does not like it, they can sensor themselves out of the video.

I don't like this it all.

No one should need to be blurring their faces out, unless they have something to be ashamed over.
Its just gonna be used by people to get away with stuff.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 14785994


HMMM> So, like the girl that google earth street view captured outside her home completely naked could go to youtube, find a video where someone is talking about it and has the pic in their video--she herself can blur her face (so no-one else can see who it is) or only the person who uploaded.

Right now, they are saying the person who uploaded can do this, but you think in the future it could be the people featured. That sounds like a good idea, imo but I'm a private person.

People shouldn't do gross things in public anyway but seriously, has anyone not picked their underwear out of the butts (hands outside of pants) when they were teens after they looked around and thought they could get away with it for the 2 seconds it took? Is it necessary to have that replayed on youtube for the rest of your life because a security camera caught it or someone with an iphone just happened to round the corner at that very moment...LOL.

Just hand that video over to us, we'll take care of the editing for you. No, don't worry, only the blurred version gets uploaded. What's that? The original file? Oh, that gets deleted of course.

media manipulation. google owns YT....google is controlled media.

i still believe that the OWS protesters - that some were actors.

@ D'Light,

this Tool is really needed!

So many Times i see Pics from People
in absurd Situations (Festivals for example)

This Cam-Thing got out of Proportion
and need to get killed (in a way)

The Face Indentification is already there,
make it available for the User too
and not only for three letter Agencies!

I agree....something smells fishy

I think this youtube feature will give everyone a false sense of anonymity (sp?)

If you upload a video to youtube and there software does the facial blurring....then youtube has a copy of the original video with the un-blurred faces. I can't believe that youtube won't save a copy of the original.
