Pinterest has been rolling out some cool new stuff lately, and one of them includes video pins. YouTube says they are eager to join in on the action, so they’ve created pinboards dedicated to specific interests–such as “The Beauty Corner” and “Nom Nom Nom”, which cover beauty tips and delicious recipes and tutorials, respectively–that hold videos rather than photographs.

Since Pinterest’s launch in 2010, they’ve battled copyright issues from photographers and from image giant Getty Images, and are currently embroiled in some drama over how they’re skirting around the laws regarding image rights; however, they recently rolled out an “attribution” link for any shareable image or video, meaning everything shared on their site has the source image linked to it. Pinterest announced last month that they would be unveiling the resource for Flickr, YouTube, Vimeo, and Behance.

After partnering with Pinterest, YouTube has released several pinboards with content created by a “Pinterest dream team” and are encouraging fans to share them on Pinterest. Take a look at some examples.
