YouTube Develops a Video Editor

We all know that editing videos is not an easy task, and find ourselves discouraged from creating a video because this. This week, YouTube introduced a video editor which is available in TestTube, which is an area where engineers and developers test out new tools and get feedback. You will notice there are several tools in TestTube that are in the works and feedback from users are encouraged.

In Video Editor, you have the ability to do things like:
Trim the beginning and ending of your videos. All videos on YouTube must adhere to less than 10 minutes, so if you have a video that is just over, this option would definitely be useful.

The Video Editor also provides the ability of combining multiple videos to create a new longer video. This would help if you had uploaded a bunch of video clips about the same topic and weren’t able to edit the video on your own. By combining the clips, you can create a even better video!

With the AudioSwap library, you can also add music to your video. This library has tens of thousands of songs.

You don’t have to install extra software either.

Here is a video to explain how the video editor works.

Will this tool change your mind about creating videos?
