YouTube has just announced a new custom blurring tool that lets creators blur any object in the video right within the YouTube interface. You could use this to hide everything from license plates to phone numbers.

In the past, if you accidentally left your phone number and wanted to avoid an avalanche of unwanted phone calls, you'd have to delete it entirely plus edit and upload the video all over again. Now that's a thing of the past. The blur will persist even as the object moves around, using technology that figures out video motion on the fly.

YouTube launched a blur ability in 2012, but that was only for people's faces.
