TF1 Yuzz Case : changing effortlessly video formats allows community managers to gain in effectiveness

Yoann Robert, Social Media Manager at TF1, decrypts how easy it is to update a video format with YuzzitPro among his Community Management Team.

Video has became unavoidable on Social Networks, it is a powerful tool to promote contents from our listings. Usually, we use pictures of our broadcasts in order to drive reactions from our community on our major events, before or in between two broadcastings.

Each social network has its specificities, especially about video content. It is paramount to adapt each content to a single network requirements. For instance, the “Landscape” format is definitively not a good fit for Instagram posts: they are not practical and not impacting visually on smartphones, therefore you have to favour formats adapted to the verticality of mobile screens, like the square format and the portrait format for stories.

At TF1, Community Managers are accountable for one broadcasted program, they are first and foremost storytellers and social Networks Specialist, they have little to no expertise in the fields of video edition or Motion Design. Like any other video customization aspects such as captions and layer adders, the conversion of a video format to another used to be very time-consuming and heavy in our video content production process. A tool like YuzzitPro clearly eases this process and allows us to allocate our time more efficiently.

Within a few clicks, any Community Managers can cut rushes directly from TF1 Video Stream or upload his cuts, edit his video, especially its format, in order to adapt it to our graphic charter and multi-publish this content on several networks in one go. It allows us to clear the overload on our Production Unit and to focus on its core function: developing innovative formats aimed at different platforms, not only Social Networks.

SnappyTV & LiveCut alternative: comparison with YuzzitPro 

If you are an ardent user of Twitter to publish your content, you probably know that SnappyTV, which provided media publishing support, has definitely ceased to exist on December 31, 2019. In order not to leave its users empty-handed, Twitter has migrated some features into an alternative: LiveCut, the live editing tool included in Twitter Media Studio, the content management platform dedicated to professionals. If you think that this alternative is too limited for you, we offer a comparison with YuzzitPro’s features. 

What can be done with LiveCut, the SnappyTV alternative?

It’s tempting to try and compare SnappyTV and its alternative LiveCut now present in the Twitter media studio. Just as it was possible to do with SnappyTV, content publishers will be able to clip an RTMP stream with LiveCut. It is also possible to monetise them with Twitter Amplify. LiveCut’s features also include private video broadcasting and sharing within a team.

However, what is no longer possible with LiveCut is the ability to publish content directly to other social networks, such as Facebook. The solution is to extract the video and then republish it on the other desired networks.

How to multiply the sources of engaging content when you are in charge of social networks in a large group? 

Creating content for social networks means constantly being able to re-invent what you are going to say. At Yuzzit Pro, we monitor platform trends on a daily basis to create a tool adapted to the needs of corporate content creators. This week, we give you some tips to help you multiply the sources of engaging social media contents

Which sources of engaging content for your social networks?

Two major trends can be identified. The first one is that platforms are full of embodied content. We already knew that, on social networks, we follow people, and when you are a brand, it is rather interesting to give personality to your speech. Video is therefore currently witnessing the emergence of formats embodied by people who benefit from a higher level of engagement.

The second major trend is linked to Covid 19 and is based on the remote working environment and therefore the emergence of video within the companies. This trend is likely to continue to develop in the years to come. As we will see it a bit later, this is an opportunity for you, as corporate content creators. 

BtoB (webinar..) / BtoC (event…) livestreams, a strong opportunity in contents

With Covid 19 and remote working becoming the standard, more people need to organise speeches and presentations through video and corporate events have become digital. All these live events, whether internal (ZOOM, Webex…) or external (Facebook, Youtube…) can be easily processed in Yuzzit Pro, in order to help you clip the most impactful moments. This way, you can easily make your messages come alive in the mouths of your experts.

Our tool also allows you to easily switch from a 16/9 format to a square or 9/16 format. In addition, our solution allows you to add your graphic charter, as well as subtitles. Our subtitle brick has enabled Europe 1 (national radio in France) to halve its subtitle production time.

In the after Covid period, your physical shootings will also be used in Yuzzit Pro. Our content library allows you to upload your videos. We can also connect to your servers to automatically retrieve images.

Speeches of executives in TV, radio and internet media

Another possibility of sourcing with our tool is the exploitation of your leaders’ speeches in TV, radio and internet media. If you hold the rights, it will be easy to find the footage of your manager in Yuzzit Pro. You can then select one or more moments and edit them.

You will also be able to edit the best moments, or extract only the sound to feed a podcast or make a sound video. You will also be able to take snapshots to make a photo carousel with text.

Shootings (internal / external (client case) / content employee advocacy)

Embodied videos are more impactful on platforms. Indeed, capturing images is a good way to get what you need. We have noted three possibilities: 

1 – Shooting images 

Mojo, also called “mobile journalism”, should inspire you in this work. Today, many field journalists are equipped with phones to make their reports. So, technology should no longer be an obstacle. Get started if you still haven’t tried!

2 – Web interview / testimonial 

You can also collect testimonials from employees or customers thanks to your webmeeting tools. As we explained in the first point, YuzzitPro helps you retrieve the feed and edit it. 

3 – Employee advocacy 

If you have an employee advocacy strategy in place in your company or if you want to develop it, we invite you to implement it while thinking about content, in order to obtain a new source for you. For example, this could be a Facebook live, or one of your employees speaking out about the meaning of a project sent to whatsapp. Stimulate your employees’ speech and perform simple curation and editing for your brand platform.

How does Europe 1 use Yuzzit Pro to feed its social networks and website with videos and podcasts?

If you’ve been following us for a while, you probably know the tools offered by Yuzzit Pro and how they can help you improve the visibility of your contents. So, how does Europe 1, major radio broadcaster in France, produce videos and podcasts to feed its website or social networks? This week, we wanted to share their feedback with you.

A comprehensive use of the tools for optimal efficiency

Europe 1 is one of our clients who have the most comprehensive use of Yuzzit Pro. They use the platform to produce part of their podcasts and videos. Indeed, our live clipping tool allows the social network teams to be very reactive when they need to cut and publish broadcast moments on Twitter. As for the web teams, the tool allows them to provide videos or audio with high impact for web consumption.

Benoist Pasteau, Assistant Editor of Europe 1, explains how his team uses Yuzzit Pro: “We also use Yuzzit Pro to cut all our audio excerpts for our podcasts. The platform is very easy to handle and can be used by several people at the same time. We publish dozens of videos and audio on our website every day thanks to Yuzzit”.

According to Philippe Da Costa, Head of Social Media and Video at Europe 1, Yuzzit Pro is “a tool that allows us to be reactive in the distribution of information and statements from our guests. In Europe 1’s social media team, we use Yuzzit Pro to extract videos, subtitle them and post them directly on our social networks. The community managers use it every day. It saves a lot of time when it comes to highlighting on-air moments in formats that are adapted to different platforms.”

A complete service to work on your videos before publishing them on your social networks

Beyond the podcast and video editing service, Yuzzit Pro offers you the possibility to rearrange them. You don’t know our video editing service yet ? It allows you, among other things, to crop your 16/9 formats, add your graphic design and subtitles.

Laurent Fabre, Strategic Accounts & Customer Success Manager at Yuzzit Pro, explains that “Europe 1 is one of our customers that uses the most features of our platform and challenges us to improve its experience and performance.

Europe 1 and Yuzzit Pro have also jointly developed the “quick publish” feature, which allows users to edit a live post and publish it on Twitter in record time. It also gives the possibility to halve the time needed to create subtitles on a video.

How to generate subtitles in SRT format?

Yuzzit Pro is the tool that helps you do tedious tasks in just a few clicks. We’ve already shown you how to cut, restream, subtitle your videos, even make a replay with a ZOOM live or a webinar. Today we will show you how to easily generate subtitles in SRT format. 

Why add subtitles to videos?

As you may have seen, there are many videos on social networks such as Facebook, YouTube and Instagram. This format is very popular because it allows Internet users to directly access the information they are looking for, without having to spend time reading an article. Moreover, a video is more fun than a text because the movements stimulate the brain, which helps better remember the information.

But did you know that the great majority of videos are watched without any sound? In fact, it is estimated that 85% of Facebook videos are watched in silent mode. This can be explained by the fact that a large number of videos are viewed in public places, on public transport, in waiting rooms, in the street, etc. In order not to disturb the people nearby, the sound is often turned off.

It is therefore essential to add subtitles to videos to increase their comprehension. Furthermore, it is also important to take into account people with impaired hearing, for whom subtitles are a very valuable help in understanding the video. 

Yuzzit Pro is THE solution for creating your subtitles in SRT format

But first of all, what does SRT stand for? It means SubRip Text and is the format for subtitles added to videos.

You now agree about the importance of subtitling videos in SRT format and you may be wondering how to do it? Subtitling is a tedious, time-consuming and complicated operation that requires you to master often complex software that can be daunting at first glance. In addition, you have to transcribe your entire text by hand, which compells you to add a lot more time to the process.

Don’t worry, it’s much simpler with our video editing solution on Yuzzit Pro. With this tool, it’s easy to automatically subtitle your videos with the “speech to text” option.

Once you’ve done this first step, all you have to do is add the subtitles to your video. And because good news always comes in pairs, you also have the option to change many parameters such as colour and font size, for example. When you are completely satisfied with the result, simply export your .srt file (or word file) and that’s it! 

If you would like a free demo to see how this tool can help you generate your subtitles in SRT format, please contact us.

The best social network trends in 2021

We have recently given you some tips for your marketing strategy for the festive season. 2020 is now over, welcome now 2021 and its 365 days during which you will have plenty of time to delight your followers with your contents. New trends are taking shape for publishing on your social networks and we will reveal the ones we think will have the most impact.

A whole range of trends on social networks in 2021

With the help of Talkwalker, the famous monitoring and analysis tool, we are going to enlighten you on what will be successful.

Starting with remixing. What is it? It’s a way of recreating formats or models in order to communicate your own ideas. This art form has become very popular, thanks to the rise of applications such as TikTok or Reels Instagram.

Talkwalker tells us that the content related to Covid-19 will have to refer to 4 key principles: community, contactless, cleanliness and compassion.

Nostalgia marketing will also be highly appreciated as it allows consumers to return to happier times. Publish contents that associate your brand with strong positive emotions and Bob’s your uncle!

The social network trend in 2021 also sees a leap forward in the use of memes, particularly among the 15/35 year old generation.

Conversational marketing will also have its place in 2021. This involves brands to interact with their consumers or followers via social networks and chatbots. In order to get all the chances on your side, forget the overly commercial speech and engage the conversation in a more human and authentic tone. That’s the best way to gain the trust of your followers.

The same goes for social gaming. Indeed, during the lockdown period, video game enthusiasts had a great time. Numerous forums have been created, allowing gamers to exchange on gaming techniques, on tips and tricks. The fact that they can no longer have physical contact with the outside world has enabled gamers to develop virtual relationships. It is expected that these gaming communities will develop more and more in 2021.

To conclude this collection of trends on social networks in 2021, Talkwalker ranked as number one the impact of socially responsible audiences. In order to stay in the game, companies will be interested in tackling topics dealing with mental health, social justice and inclusiveness. If not, they run the risk of becoming obsolete and forgotten.

Edit your videos very easily and switch from horizontal to vertical and square format in just 1 click.

Customise, edit and publish your content with YuzzitPro

After reading the top trends on social networks in 2021, you probably want to create even more content for your followers.

In order to stand out on social networks, it is important to customise your content so that it reflects your image and graphic charter. Do you need to resize your content to 9/16 format or add subtitles in just a few clicks? Our YuzzitPro editing tool is there to make it easy for you.

Your contents are now customised, and all you have to do is publish them on all your social networks and schedule their broadcast. Need a little help? Thanks to our publishing tool, it becomes child’s play.

We hope that these trends on social networks will have helped you to establish your strategy for 2021.
