YouTube Lets Users Edit Video Online
Combining two videos into one in new online video editor.
You want to be the next big hit on YouTube? It could happen. And YouTube just made it more likely with the release of YouTube Video Editor, a simple online program now available in TestTube, the site's new area for experimental programs.
Unlike traditional video editing programs that live on your computer and usually requre a good amount of storage space on your hard drive, YouTube Video Editor lives in the cloud. It takes up no disk space and offers online, on-demand video editing tools within the YouTube environment.
With YouTube Video Editor, you can combine multiple videos from the ones you've uploaded to create a new piece like a "Best of" video, trim the beginning and ending of videos, or add soundtracks from YouTube's AudioSwap library of 40,000 songs. The interface is simple enough for someone with no experience with video editing. Finished video can be posted directly from the editor to your YouTube page.
YouTube says the editor is ideal for merging single, short clips into a longer video . For instance, if you've filmed an entire wedding, the video editor lets you easily remove unwanted footage to capture just the moment when they say “I do.”
Future additions to the editor may include transitions, effects, title screens, and audio layers, and the ability to combine HD video with standard video without rendering the entire piece in the lower resolution. The new features will depend on user comments and requests during this test phase.
YouTube users can also experiment with Video Annotations to add interactive comments to their videos, CaptionTube to add captions and subtitles, and a test version of HTML5 video player, the format compatible with iOS 4 devices including the iPad and new iPhone .
