All Ideas/Suggestions For Byte


#1

Here is a collection of some great ideas.

Playlists/Collections

  • Ability to create playlists or “collections”. Can save your own and other users videos
  • Ability to make the playlist/collections private or public.
  • Ability to select between auto play or looping (Automatically plays the next video, or loops same video until user goes to next)

Liked Posts

  • Ability to see liked posts
  • Ability to organize by newest and oldest

History

  • History of all watched videos (Idea by: @nathdupc)
  • Ability to clear history

Comments

  • Ability to filter/block certain words from all your comments
  • Ability to pin comments
  • Ability to turn off comments across all videos or specific videos
  • Ability for users to select between newest or top comment
  • Replies to a comment can be seen under that comment instead of having to go to the bottom
  • Must have character limit and links shouldn’t be allowed in comments (to prevent spam)

Captions

  • Ability to edit caption
  • Hashtags and links are compressed into a tab that says “Hashtags” or “Links” which can expand when clicked. This will make things look cleaner
  • Creators should be able to put links in their captions (unlike instagram)

Profile

  • Option to view content based on Newest, Oldest, or Most Popular
  • Ability to switch between viewing content in grid mode and list mode
  • A “Friends” tab to see featured channels and the teams they are in
  • An “About” tab for users to give a description and link to other social media
  • Ability to make profile private (Suggestion by @kevinaf)

Scheduled Posts

  • ?Ability to schedule posts (Idea by @lilwestie)
  • Scheduled time is mentioned in bio (Example: Next Upload Scheduled at 8:30pm EST) (Idea by: @tola)

Likes/Rev*nes

  • Ability to turn off likes and rev*nes for individual users, as well as everyone (if they show up on your feed)

Pinned Video and Highlights

  • Pinned Video - Regular Pinned video that comes after the Artist Reel/Profile Trailer
  • Highlights/Collections: Similar to instagram highlights, but instead of a collection of stories, its a collection of certain videos you pick

Team Monetization Rules

  • When a team is created, the creator MUST fill out a textbox specifying the monetization rules of the team. When a user joins the team, they must agree to those terms before joining. If the terms/rules are changed, all team members will receive a notification to accept or reject these changes

Linking Videos

  • Ability to “Link” videos together with another user. Once your video is done playing, it will load and play the next linked video.(Variation to @Quinten’s idea)
  • If above idea is implemented, then an option to watch all linked/connected videos from the start/first

Official YouTube Channel

  • Create an official youtube channel run by staff on Byte
  • Channel can be used for: Making announcements, showcasing features, uploading compilations, etc

General

  • Simple analytics for you videos
  • Ability to set video to public, private, or unlisted
  • Ability to upload videos from the desktop version
  • Ability to switch between multiple accounts (Idea by @ethan)
  • To be able to return to the same spot in the feed after you visit a users profile (Idea by: @TopJew)
  • People you follow show at the top of other users following/follower list (Based off @joescully’s idea)
  • Keep place in feed when leaving the app. Prompted to “Go To Top” when returning if you wish. Similar to twitter. (Idea by Cableson)
  • Ghost Mode Camera (By @SoyLaloCastro)
  • Dark Mode

?Question mark is for ideas that I’m uncertain about.
Please leave your suggestions and feedback! Thanks!

Those sound like pretty good ideas. Hopefully they’ll be implemented into the app


#3

The collaboration from a distance thing is not really about linking 2vids together more like making one video together (kind of like a musical.ly duet) with people you send a “collab request” to ( you can only send one to people with the same range of followers or less then yours). This video can be found on both channels with link to the lther persons channel, or under the “tagged” or “collab-tap” on the artist’s profile :slight_smile:

Beeing able to do collabs from a distance makes it easier to grow for people who live in small towns. This gives everyone a fair chance to work together, not only people from LA for example, where there are a lot of content creators :blush:

Great idea to put all the ideas together :sunglasses::ok_hand:


#4

ahh, thanks for the clarification. I’ll change “addition” to “Variation” so there is no confusion. The idea of linking videos did popup in my head after i read your post.


#5

Ads on behalf of countries. For example, I’m in Turkey, and I found v2 thanks to Dom hofmann. We can make special advertises for every country. And these are done according to the interests of the countries. In my country, it didn’t spread. But there are some countries. Some news may spread around. I think someone should be chosen for each country and advertising strategies should be planned.


#6

I like the idea about the guidelines for the teams, maybe like a little terms and agreement each user has to check off in order to join the team.


#7

Like this organization! Be sure to add more and link previous posts, giving credit to the original thinker


#8

Added some more links and tagged some people who made similar posts.

For the others ideas, either I came up with them, or so many people have mentioned it in multiple posts that I just leave it as a general idea


#9

thanks for making this!


#10

These are all pretty good ideas. I doubt at first all of these will be used, but hopefully a lot of them will be


#11

Thanks for the kind replies guys. Glad you liked the ideas. Anyone got more? Ill update it once i collect some more!


I'm making a list of ideas, so DM me
#12

I think it would be cool if you saw a video you liked and you could swipe to see more content from that artist or team but still stay in the feed so you could easily scroll through other videos. I don’t know if it’s possible but I think it’s a cool idea :aww:


#13

That’s a good idea cuz I hate when i visit someone’s page and loose my spot in the feed


#14

Update (#1): Added to top post:

  • Comments: switch between top comment and newest comment
  • Comments: Replies to a comment can be seen under that comment
  • Comments: Must have Character limit and no links
  • Idea to keep place in the feed after visiting a persons profile (Credits to: @TopJew)
  • Idea to have history saved (Credits to: @NathanDupessey)
  • Idea to have your next scheduled upload time be mentioned in bio (Credits to: @tola)

#15

Add this?


#16

these are cool ideas
very nicely put together
well done :clap:


#17

I’ll check it out


#18

Yes I think all of them are good ideas


#19

For monetization, how is it going to work? Will a 6-second ad play before you watch a vine, or will there be a banner ad below the vine?


#20

dom didn’t reveal what it’s going to be. I’m sure they are working hard on that cause monetization is a very important topic
