Xfire Connects Into YouTube Channels

Santa Monica-based Xfire, the online social networking and chat service aimed at gamers, said this morning that it is making it easier for users to capture and share videos of their game play, and post it on a YouTube channel. Xfire already allows its users to capture and share content on their own site; the new feature makes it easier to cross post that content to YouTube. Xfire said it already has over 5.5 million videos captured using its social app. The company said the feature comes as a result of user demand; Xfire also said it hopes to add more sharing tools over the coming months.
