YouTube Adds Built-in Video Editor

June 17th, 2010 at 10:35 am

Popular online video site YouTube has recently added a new feature that its users would surely welcome. YouTube now has a new on-site video editor that allows its users to edit their downloaded videos right from the website.

This is actually not the first time that YouTube ever added a cloud-based video editor on its website. It started with the Flash-based YouTube Remixer in 2007 but was eventually discontinued due to bugs and for being too slow. The recent video editor seems to be lighter and better. But its worth trying out to find out if it does work quite well.

The new video editor is based on JavaScript and seems to offer basic video editing features that most YouTube users really need. It allows users to edit their existing YouTube videos on the cloud. Video clips can be trimmed and spliced and audio can be replaced using YouTube’s music library composed of around 40,000 approved songs. But users should bear in mind that in exchange of using audio from YouTube’s library, their might be ads that YouTube may display. Other features may be added later on, depending on what users may suggest or may find useful. The new YouTube video editor may be accessed and tested out through the YouTube TestTube page.
