YouTube has now rolled out a new feature that allows you to edit your videos directly online, even videos that you may have already published. This means you can keep view counts and comments on a video that you’ve wanted to make changes to, but never did.
This editing feature is not meant to replace other video editing software, but a quick and easy way to make simple edits by the normal user.
Video editing on YouTube will allow you to stabilize jerky hand-held footage, rotate videos and boost colors and contrast. You can also swap the audio in the footage for one of the available tracks. Trimming footage from the beginning or end of your video is a cinch as well.
If you aren’t happy with the results once you hit save, it is possible to revert back to the original version. You can also click “save as” to create an additional video while keeping the original.
Check out the demo of the video editing feature from YouTube below.
