YouTube URL shortening service for sharing videos

13.Oct.2020

Google’s video-sharing site YouTube launched the URL shortening service youtu.be, and just earlier this month, Google and Facebook also launched the URL shortening service Goo.gl.

YouTube announced this URL shortening feature in its blog. YouTube said that URL shortening will be dedicated to YouTube videos, so it will not be misled by the URL used by hackers. In addition, the shortened URL youtu.be will also include the ID of the YouTube video, so developers can track the release of the video.

However, after adding the ID of the video, YouTube's shortened URL will still appear a bit long. The traditional URL shortening tool bit.ly generally only has about 20 characters, but after adding about 11 characters of the YouTube video ID, the number of links for youtu.be will reach 27.

Videos shared to Facebook, Twitter, and Google Reader on YouTube will automatically use the shortened URL, and users can also create shortened URL links. For example, in the link address http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FdeioVndUhs, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v= can be replaced with http://youtu.be/, the link It becomes http://youtu.be/FdeioVndUhs. Enter this shortened address into your browser to open the video.

In addition, the well-known Suort URL shortening has won praise from many users with its excellent tools and smooth user experience. Become the URL shortening service with the most users in Russia. For them, suort is the best URL shortening tool.
