WP8.1 Upload to YouTube app now supports background uploads

Developers BC3 has updated their WP8.1 app  Upload to Youtube, to version 2.0.

The app is designed specifically for  Windows Phone 8.1, and lets you pick videos not just from your camera roll, but using a file picker from anywhere on your phone (such as the Downloads folder for example).

New in this version is a very significant new feature – the ability to upload video in the background, meaning you can now record a video, start and upload to YouTube and get on with your day.image

The app will also accept input via the Share menu, allowing you for example to craft a video in Movie Maker and, in theory, use the Share menu to upload it to YouTube.

The app is free and ad-supported and can be downloaded from the Windows Phone Store here.
