Massive rumour: Video capture and YouTube uploading on its way to LBP

Feb 26th 2009 - 9:59 AM

We’ve had a news tip come in from a Canadian reader who says that on February 23rd’s episode of the Canadian show EP Daily on G4 Tech TV (, YouTube video uploading is hinted at coming to LittleBigPlanet.

Media Molecule’s Kareem Ettouney begins talking about how users of LittleBigPlanet want to share their level creating ideas:

A lot of people in the LittleBigPlanet World are really keen on showing off how they made their creations.

It’s an obvious need. You go on YouTube and see all those videos. Let’s give the users a tool that can stream the content and put it on YouTube.

Yes, let’s.

Unfortunately there is no way we can verify this information as we cannot watch the video (without being in Canada), so if anyone wants to YouTube it for us, feel free!
You can watch the video here!

Other games that utilise the PS3’s access to the YouTube API include PixelJunk Eden, PixelJunk Monsters and the recent (and frankly awesome) Noby Noby Boy. YouTube API integration for PlayStation 3 titles was first announced last May. The ability to upload game play videos to YouTube has proved popular with players, allowing them to share techniques in completing the most difficult of levels. It would be a very fitting and welcome addition to LittleBigPlanet.

Thanks to Mark C from Canada for sending this in.

That would be awesome, I could finally show my levels on the internet so people start playing them…they’re being played by few players…


You can watch it here smile

Its pretty clear from this they want to add the feature.


Just watched it (thanks Redswipe!), quite apparent that one of their future goals (whether that is the next patch or not) will be based around video recording/capturing gameplay etc.

Loved the interview btw.


What? Did I buy a capture card just to see this happen?


Wait. I clearly couldnt understand. Is it saying that I can capture my gameplay on LBP from the game options and upload on youtube. Can someone tell me what this exacly is


@ Genco

There are already a few PS3 games you can do this on. Noby Noby Boy for instance. You just hit record in game and it records to your hard drive. Then you upload it straight from your PS3 to your YouTube account. I assume it will work the same way when they add the function to LittleBigPlanet.


Would be cool with a capturing feature. It would be even cooler if they also added a video editor,(or maybe Sony should give us the feature to edit videos through a firmware update).


It’s MarC with a C (French)

Thank for mentioning me though



Sorry Mark! wink


Reminds me, I need someone to capture my levels…if anyone is interested, add me

PSN: Zwoltopia


You changed the wrong word! My last name is Mailhot but my first name in MARC not MARK. I use a C instead of a K
