Online video sharing giant YouTube has confirmed that it will no longer make its annual year-finish rewind videos. The corporation exclusively confirmed the news to Tubefilter on Thursday. “The decision was made on what would be the 10th anniversary of Rewind”, Tubefilters wrote.
The project, YouTube Rewind, was cancelled last year due to coronavirus. The corporation has now decided to entirely discontinue creating rewind videos as the platform is also huge creating it not possible to include its “vastness and diversity” inside a minutes-lengthy video compilation. The corporation has also confirmed that it is not abandoning the project due to the widespread criticism it received and it has practically nothing to do with it. The video platform, in 2018, was massively criticised for its rewind video. It, in reality, in no time became the most disliked video of all time on YouTube.
According to Tubefilter, a YouTube spokesperson has confirmed that YouTube has discarded its personal Rewind video and has passed on the duty to creators to provide or bring their personal viewpoint for the notion. Several creators in current years have published their personal versions of YouTube Rewind videos on the platform.
YouTube reportedly will not be funding any of the creators creating Rewind videos but may perhaps market them on its social media handles. While there will be no Rewind videos by YouTube, it will continue to create its annual trends lists and will have its Streamy Awards as properly, states the media reports. The corporation has also come up with a international finish-of-year interactive encounter the information of which are but to be disclosed.
“Since Rewind started in 2011, we have seen creators from MrBeast [54 million views], elrubiusOMG, and Slayy Point, to so many more, create their own end-of-year videos, uniquely capturing the year from each of their perspectives,” a YouTube spokesperson was quoted as saying in the report.
“It’ll continue to be inspiring to see the myriad of ways the most creative content producers in the world — our YouTube creators — encapsulate the end of year in their video recaps, as YouTube retires its own Rewind video,” the spokesperson added.
