YouTube's New Video Editor

YouTube has a new online video editor that lets you trim the video, rotate it, remove shaky camera motions, adjust the contrast, saturation and color temperature, apply simple effects like "sepia", "cartoon", "thermal" and add a free audio soundtrack from YouTube's library.

While the editor is pretty basic, the main advantage is that you can replace the original video, but this only works if your video has less than 1,000 views and YouTube hasn't received a copyright complaint from a third-party. There's also a "save as" option that lets you save the edited version as a new video.



How to find the new editor? Make sure you're logged in, go to "My videos & playlists" and click "Edit video" next to the video you want to edit. You can also open a video you've uploaded and click "Edit video".


To make things more confusing, YouTube has another video editor that lets you mix your videos and Creative Commons videos from other YouTube users, add audio soundtracks from YouTube's library and apply transitions.

  1. i don't find it confusing. It just complement each other. The new online editor had the sepia and other option just like windows movie maker and the older editor still had the classic function that still awesome..

  2. I don't think it is confusing, the new editor is to take car of individual videos (which is what most people need, because most people upload individual videos), If you want to get more creative then you can use a more advanced editor to mix several video, add sound etc. If both editor were together, nobody would use it because it would be too complex, whereas I beieve many people will use the new editor on a routine basis...

  9. It's BS. It won't let you mix the audio - you just replace the entire audio track. How can this thing be called a video editor? It's shamefully insufficient.
