YouTube Adds New Functionality for Categories

Andy Plesser at Beet.TV reports that You Tube last night introduced new functionality that will let users to organize clips around designated categories. For those managing a large number of clips this will be a welcome addition. Previously, clips whether uploaded to a channel or to a regular account, simply went up in a semi-random order -- usually chronological. Users could organize their clips into playlists, but there was no way to group clips more completely. This change, which I've not yet tested out, will let the user decide how to organize their clips and will improve the user experience. Andy notes that this will make YouTube more Flickr-like.
