Twitch and its parent company Amazon are going head to head with YouTube. If you join the new Twitch open beta, you're able to upload videos as you would on Google's service, as well as take advantage of features like follower notifications (so they know when you've uploaded something), video statistics, and more.

As you can see in the video above, the interface is easy to use and familiar to anyone who's used Twitch before, particularly the Highlights feature of the site.

What this means for the 'Export to YouTube' option on Twitch is unknown, but I wouldn't be surprised to see it gone before too long.
