YouTube Now Allows You to Edit Videos Direct From Site

Capturing videos and uploading it on YouTube is a favorite past time for many people. What if you have captured something really great, possible a cat did something incredibly funny. So, you have captured a masterpiece and want to upload it on the YouTube but before that you want to get rid of all that stuff which is not that interesting.

To your surprise, you can now upload your video to YouTube and simply edit it while remaining on the site. Forget to bother about Final Cut or iMovie, simply upload it and start editing right on the site.

YouTube now offers different editing tools to edit your video direct from the site. The quick fix menu allows you to rotate your videos, brighten up the dark shot, modify the contrast, color and saturation, edit the beginning and/or ending, and stabilize the unstable videos. Being owned by Google, an ‘I’m feeling lucky’ button examines your video and performs automatic tweaks. This button is ideal for those who cannot wait to edit their videos.

Furthermore, where creativity comes, YouTube offers the effects tools. These tools are created by YouTube in association with Picnik (a web-based photo-editing service owned by Google). The tools allow you to make your videos black and white. You can also add Instagram-style old fashioned effects and much more. With the help of these tools, you will also be able introduce royalty-free music in your video clips.

Prior to this, YouTube has already introduced a cloud-based video editor in June 2010. The only difference between the two is you need not to upload your video again after editing with the recent editing tools.

YouTube product manager Jason Toff described the reason behind the launch of this tool:

We noticed a lot of the videos that were uploaded to YouTube could use some polish, some basic video editing.

His point is justifiable as there are a lot of videos on YouTube that could be made better with trimming and others with stabilization.
