Ytrend wins Media Hack Day

It has been an amazing weekend at the Media Hack Day. Over 70 people participated in not less than 13 projects, wow! We’ve seen native apps, web apps, kinects, studio live streaming, green screens and even a drone!

From all the 13 projects, only one could win the first price. The quality of projects was high, so the jury had a challenging time deciding who should win the 3.000,-EUR gift voucher sponsored by Axel Springer and Der Spiegel.

And the winner is… Ytrends!

Ytrends is a platform to watch and follow the trending videos for your topic of interest (like #cats, #Putin, #ebola, #hackathon). The video list is shown in a full responsive web app and uses the Google API to look for video’s.

The MVP (Minimum Viable Product) has the following core features:

  • Live hashtag search for relevant videos
  • Display of related trending videos. Each video has a thumbnail, a headline as well as a viral ranking.
  • Display of the most influential users based on the number of their followers with whom they shared the video.
  • Subscribe to a topic and get a notification each time a certain video in this topic is gaining popularity.

Congratulations Ytrends!
