Youtube Integration (or Logos/Verbumtube)
I know my idea involves some legal issues. Maybe this can be limited to those who are subscribed to Youtube's Red service or maybe there can be a pool of Youtuber's whom have given permission for their content to be used in this manner. With that said my idea is that once subscribed to a Youtube Channel Logos can have a Card on the Home Page called Youtube Subscriptions. This will notify you when a new video has been added. Once selected the Video then opens up in a Logos page. On that page I would be able to capture and download the video to my library and take notes on the content of the video as well as capture comments I want to keep. The work around on this idea is that Logos can have it's own "Youtube" service where Content Providers can upload the same video to. Once on Logos server the video becomes available as a channel much the same way as on Youtube with subscribers allowed to make comments on the video. In fact, this would be a good way for the Content Provider to interact with their audience and vice versa. Courses could be built around these videos utilizing the user's library resources etc. Making the Logos owners Library that much more valuable. I certainly would pay a yearly subscription fee for such a service. Some of what is collected from the yearly fee can even be shared with the Content provider. This can be a way for Logos to add content and revenue and make the program more interactive. This also allows for authors and experts to extend their expertise and sell their books, courses, and products with of course, Logos making a profit from such ventures.
