How to edit your videos in the cloud without paying a cent
Friday 18 June 2010
YouTube has launched an online editor that lets people upload and edit their videos online without having to download and install video editing software on their PC.
The easy-to-use feature was announced on June 16 and is currently part of Google's "TestTube" projects (meaning that some features may still be a little "rough around the edges"). It enables users to combine multiple videos, trim or edit videos, add a soundtrack, and to post their completed video works to the YouTube site in one click.
"Video editing usually requires installing software packages and having a fair amount of technical savvy," writes YouTube on the Official YouTube Blog. "But we think video editing should be fun and easy, so we're introducing a new [video editing] tool."
YouTube user "Rewboss" has created a how-to video that will quickly take you through the new editing features.
An article by CNET's Stephen Shankland will also show you how to use the new cloud-based software.
Swedish company JayCut was the first to offer consumers a web-based alternative to heavy video editors. The company, which was founded in 2007, offers free and paid cloud-based video editing on your laptop, mobile or PC.
