NEWS: X (formerly Twitter) is launching a TV app for Amazon and Samsung smart TVs next week to turn the platform into a major video streaming competitor to YouTube.

The big picture: The app, which the source says looks "identical" to YouTube's TV interface, aims to encourage users to watch "long videos on a bigger screen." It represents Musk's latest pivot for X into becoming a "video-first platform."

State of play: X has been actively courting big-name video creators and media personalities.

- It recently signed a deal with former CNN anchor Don Lemon for an exclusive show.
- Prominent YouTuber MrBeast earned over $250,000 from his first video uploaded to X, though he suggested the sky-high revenue was likely inflated.

Yes, but: Competing with YouTube's massive existing smart TV footprint won't be easy.

- YouTube accounted for 8.6% of total TV viewing in the U.S. as of January, according to Nielsen.
- Nearly half of YouTube's U.S. viewership came via TVs in 2023, per The Information.

"He is set on competing with YouTube," the X source said of Musk, adding that Twitch, Signal and Reddit are also in his sights as rival platforms.

The big question: Whether luring creators with lucrative monetization offers will be enough for X to make a dent in YouTube's dominance of premium long-form video across devices.

Beyond smart TVs, X has also explored expanding to video games, podcasts and long-form writing as it chases a broader "everything app"

History of video editing was that Plug-ins made Apples Final Cut Pro a success as did a community vibe and accessibility

I wouldn’t want to invest in a closed system.

It’s also nice that they are referring to elevate.io as a PLATFORM

IM and SS would be paid more than the other shareholders in any takeover, so IM would always be covered ..
They would get sale share price + extra
Normal procedure

"Plugin-ins and a Community" ...turns it towards being a people's product, which kind of what made WordPress successful and removed the complexity of making websites

There’s no ties to Eidos anymore.

There are lots of big tech companies that could be interested.

Ian went to them a few years back demonstrating the tech.

Including Apple and Google

When I talk of Adobe is because it’s the easy one as we are a direct target for them.
They have publicly told the US investor community that they want all their products to touch ‘all surfaces’ (their phrasing)

All surfaces means

Mobile desktop and web.

However I’m not sure if I would even put Adobe at the top of the list particularly because of the top secret PLAYER and the financial extra upside for the big Cloud companies.

Agreed Cabi, he's already done the big-boys sale with Eidos, as your links pointed out. He's not getting any younger and will want a very nice inheritance for his kids.None of that is any guarantee of course...

I see this as a binary bet skewed to upside.. on release if early indications of interest and take up .. the market switches from fear to FOMO in an instant .. I've been buying at the lows ..I can't envision downside from here .. this is an accumulation zone for the visible near term potential ..

Cabi post 13439, thanks for those links. I remember developing what was then called 'multimedia' software for RISC OS 30 years ago!More to the point, the article says that Blackbird's video processing tech is licensed from Eidos? Is that still the case with Elevate? Is there any financial/legal issue with that?

Lyqwid,

Steve Jobs took new shares worth 19% of Adobe in 1982, after Adobe wouldnt sell Adobe to him for $5 million...

I think there is far,far more likehihood of investment into BIRD than there is some notion of letting it fall into administration and having some kind of auction for its assets... but..even then...there are few creditors ...so shareholders are more or less first in line..

The retained losses of around £28m are worth something on their own, purely from the tax credit value

Who’s to say it’s not Larry Ellison of Oracle.

They were looking at buying out TikTok a while back.

Plus we know Stephen Streater has a good relationship with him after selling Eidos to Oracle.

History of Eidos.

This was helped in no small part by Streater’s use of his PhD research on image processing to create a new video compression technology, a technology they sold
to Oracle for £36m. “I thought we’d sell our technology to Larry Ellison (Oracle)," says Streater

I think we all know there are risks, why do you think we are at 6p.

However if they get this right this could get into the pounds.

All to play for in my opinion.

It’s basically like being a seed investor, but in this instance the technology is proven.

Plus we have Sumit Rai, who did it all before at Sony Vegas Pro, and with his own video company, which he sold to a Nasdaq company.

This could be the next Figma for video.

Not long now until launch, buy your ticket for the ride.

It’s going to get very exciting.
