GoPro Isn’t Doomed Yet. But they must become a software company, fast.
GoPro needed to spend heavily in “video editing automation.”
GoPro needs software in spades, far beyond just something to make editing easier. The company that created the first mass-market visceral experience broadcasting device ought to have a hand in every dimension of the current live revolution, not just be one of its few cameras. That requires software. [...] Most consumers already have all the hardware they need to create video; what they need is software to make this infinity of images comprehensible. As the defensibility of hardware declines, GoPro has an advantage few other makers of software have: fans, tens or even hundreds of millions of them.

YouTube as you know it is about to change dramatically | The Verge
https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=10139266 // Would you pay to avoid ads on YouTube? [...] According to multiple sources, the world’s largest video-sharing site is preparing to launch its two separate subscription services before the end of 2015 — Music Key, which has been in beta since last November, and another unnamed service targeting YouTube’s premium content creators, which will come with a paywall. Taken together, YouTube will be a mix of free, ad-supported content and premium videos that sit behind a paywall.

Facebook Confirms Live Broadcasting Will Soon Open To Journalists And Verified Profiles | TechCrunch
Live streaming/Broadcasting from your phone, being a feature. Not a product. Nor a company. Good luck Meerkat finding a soft landing, exit, getting to cashflow postive quickly. If you are lucky an Android device maker like Samsung buy you for cheap and put your app pre-loaded on their devices. Twitch came out of Justin.tv and found itself a crowd with gamers, bought by Amazon. I wouldn't be surprised if Twitch releases an iPhone/Android app soonish.

BBC to cut more than 1,000 jobs - BBC News
bbc.in/1GQXVcJ - leaner simpler, delayering &! TV Licence shortfall - there will be calls to close iPlayer loophole // &! BBC director general Tony Hall has said he believes the licence fee has "got 10 years of life left in it". However the director general dismissed the suggestion of replacing the charge with a subscription model to pay for the BBC's output. - bbc.in/1GBDRNz // &! The Guardian view on the licence fee: a time to rally round the BBC - The way to stop the Conservatives marginalising the corporation is to make them realise that an assault would spell political disaster - bit.ly/1JzeQ6F [...] What is pernicious about these objections, supposedly arising from principle, is that they frequently veil envy of the BBC from its business competitors, whether Rupert Murdoch or the Daily Mail.

Amazon Pounces On Twitch After Google Balks Due To Antitrust Concerns
Google was unable to close the deal, because it was concerned about potential antitrust issues that could have come with the acquisition. The Mountain View, Calif. company already owns YouTube, the world’s most-visited content streaming site, which competes with Twitch to broadcast and stream live or on-demand video game sessions. One source noted that because of the concerns, Google and Twitch could not come to an agreement on the size of a potential breakup fee in case the deal did not go through. Representatives at Twitch could not be immediately reached for comment while representatives at  Google declined to comment. +++ http://www.businessinsider.com/what-happened-to-the-google-twitch-acquisition-2014-8?op=1 +++ !!Start-Up lesson >> http://pando.com/2014/08/25/twitch-ceo-on-jilting-goolge-amazon-shares-our-long-term-values-but-does-it-really/ !! // Google failed @social & human aspect again.

RedShark News - Could VP9 be the codec for 4K Blu-Ray?
http://www.redsharknews.com/distribution/item/1373-vp9-codec-rides-to-the-aid-of-4k - Google have oddly found themselves in a great position to capitalise on the current 4K fervour with their VP9 codec. Google weren’t really thinking about 4K when they developed VP9, it just happened to be a fact of the way the codec was written that it supports up to 16K video! In fact when asked earlier last year if they would be supporting 4K the Google folks appeared somewhat confused by why anyone would want to do that, as obviously they had been designing VP9 with YouTube in mind and were more thinking that this would be a great way of making 720p YouTube streams really viable on normal internet connections.

Musik-Downloads in den USA erstmals seit zehn Jahren rückläufig - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Der Musikindustrie bieten Streaming Dienste wie Rdio, Deezer oder Spotify neue Absatzmöglichkeiten, auch Internetgiganten wie Google wollen den Boom nutzen. Einzelne Musiker und Bands sehen den Streaming-Trend jedoch mit Sorge. Unter anderem beklagten "Radiohead"-Sänger Thom Yorke und der einstige "Talking Heads"-Frontmann David Byrne, dass diese Dienste mit ihren geringeren Auszahlungen Künstlern auf Dauer kein ausreichendes Einkommen bieten könnten. + http://www.digitaltrends.com/mobile/how-to-improve-music-streaming/ + http://www.spin.com/articles/music-documentaries-netflix-best-streaming-movies/ + Internet Radio Stations (Amazingradio, Capitalxtra).

Apple Plots Reboot of iTunes for Web - WSJ.com
Apple is exploring an overhaul of the way it sells and stores music that is aimed at extending its influence to the Web, according to people briefed on the strategy.

The key vehicle for the move is Apple's newly acquired music-streaming service La La Media Inc. for which Apple paid $85 million, according to people familiar with the matter. Where Apple's iTunes requires users to download music onto a specific computer, Lala.com lets users buy and listen to music through a Web browser, meaning its customers can access purchases from anywhere, as long as they are connected to the Internet.

Apple is considering adopting that same model for songs sold on iTunes, a change that would give consumers more ways

That new business model extends Apple's grip on the music business, giving it the ability to sell music through search engines and other Web sites and broaden its reach beyond people who come to its virtual store.

Apple to Buy the Music Start-Up Lala - NYTimes.com
One reason Lala may not have taken off is that people do not necessarily want to entrust their music collection to the servers of a start-up whose prospects are uncertain. There would be no such uncertainty with Apple.

Web-TV Divide Is Back in Focus With NBC Sale - NYTimes.com
“If you disrupt the consumer experience, you’re in trouble,”

The scramble by TV companies to preserve its ad model while giving consumers choice — what Comcast’s chief executive called in interviews Thursday “anytime, anywhere media” — mirrors the efforts of newspapers, magazines and radio companies to wring more money from digital media. But all are facing some entrenched habits.

Free Streaming May Soon Be History: Spotify Delays U.S. Launch, MySpace May Move To Pay Model
And that isn’t the only bad news. MySpace Music is “almost certainly” going to severely restrict free streaming to users, say multiple sources, and move to a paid model. “They are spending $20 million/month on streaming royalties, and that just isn’t sustainable,” said one source with knowledge of MySpace’s relationships with the labels. Other sources have said that MySpace’s royalty payments are much lower, but don’t deny that the service is a cash hole.
