YouTube Introduces Video Edits

Catherine Jones September 29, 2011

YouTube has introduced a new editing feature on Wednesday.  This allows users to edit their videos on the website.

The user can edit the already uploaded videos and the videos will retain the same video IDs so that the counts and comments are not lost. All the links remain the same as well. The user has to click on the “Edit Video” button on his video’s page or the My Videos page. This feature enables the user to edit the videos in a shorter time frame.

YouTube wants that the users be given the ability to polish their videos and the edit feature is part of that initiative. A majority of the YouTube videos are rough amateur footage and this will give the amateur enthusiasts to add a touch of professionalism to their work.

The Edit option enables the user to stabilize hand-held footage, rotate the videos and enhance the colors and contrast. There is an “I’m Feeling Lucky” feature as well that enables one click colour correction.

The team has worked with the Picnik (the online image editing tool) team which Google acquired last year to add artistic effects that enable the user to add filters such as black and white and cartoon effects to the videos. The user can even swap the audio and can chose from a selection of available tracks. The user has the option of trimming the video as well if it is too lengthy ay the beginning or the end.

Once the editing is complete, the user can click on the save button and the processing will start. If you are not happy with the results, you can go back to the original version. There is an option to of saving multiple versions as well.  But videos that have more than 1000 views or third party content, can only be saved in the new version.

A great addition! This along with the recent development of full-length movies on Youtube makes competitor services look ancient in comparison.

I'm planning to put videos on my blogs sooner because they are talking about the "video marketing" and this is quite new to me. Even if I'm not into this, this feature is really beneficial among bloggers. My recent post Two-vehicle deer collision causes heavy damage

Hi Sahil! did you ever tried editing videos? I think this solutions will perhaps be a blast on users! I know you are one of them. My recent post סוכות

The aspect of video editing on Youtube that I like is the ability to add click-able links within the videos themselves. Now you can edit an earlier installment in a video series to add a link to its followup video just before the "part 1" video ends. My recent post Design a Cover Too - Madden NFL in Adobe Photoshop

That seems like a very useful feature for all the users. I have seen many people looking for a editor to edit videos before they upload videos to Youtube but now we have an easy solution for this. :) My recent post Gavin Rees vs Derry Mathews Boxing Fight Live Stream Replay & Results

What a brilliant upgrade YouTube did! Not only amateur enthusiasts but everyone will love this new feature. I'm sure we'll see more videos of high quality now as this will enable users to delete unwanted scenes and edit shaky views.

Looks like a new cool feature from youtube. I haven't tried it yet but I think it is really very useful especially that the edits you make won't affect the video's stats. ~Alex My recent post Conductor Installation Services Ltd receives gold award for occupational health and safety

I played around a bit with video edits. It's pretty awesome. You can make all your shaky home videos look really stable and professional. Also, you can turn them around if you filmed them the wrong way. Really cool! My recent post Where You Can Find Royalty Free Images for Your Blog

Its a very useful upgrade of Youtube, I'm a user of Youtube and I can tell that it is upsetting if you want to edit some parts of your video and all the views will be lost, you need to start all over again. My recent post sms
