The new update for Yahoo Video adds uploading to the site, so its users can publish and share the videos they create through the service.

Yahoo Video has received some retouching from the Yahoo staff. Ethan Fassett posted news of the update to the Yahoo Search blog, and provided a review of the features now available from Yahoo Video.

On the site, users can now upload their videos to share with others. Through the use of its MyStudio, people can manage and share the videos they upload to the service.

Video links can be shared by email or through Yahoo Messenger. A video player window for user-contributed content can be copied and pasted into a blog post or web page, where others can play it back.

The home page update for Yahoo Video shows snapshots of videos from the Featured, Popular, and New categories. Each snapshot has a quick link to search for other videos similar to those highlighted at the top of the page.

Visitors can browse through lists of Featured and Popular videos from the main page, or select from Categories or Tags to see available videos related to those queries. Also, the introduction of Channels groups videos from a common source and lists those sources on the left side of the search results page.

As users upload their videos, they create an individual Channel. Other users can subscribe to that Channel with a RSS reader or saved to a MyFavorites page.

Videos from MyFavorites can be exported as a Media RSS feed. People can subscribe to that feed and keep up with that user’s choices as he adds more videos to the feed.
