Today’s YouTube lab: Editor & Publishing

This is a video I created last night using YouTube’s in-browser video editor.

The good:

  • The interface is clean, and mostly intuitive.
  • Wide range of basic controls for common editing tasks.
  • includes CC licensed clips to use & experiment with.
  • includes a large CC licensed music library for use.
  • will import pictures from Google+ account, or upload from computer.
  • free


The not-so-good:

  • Processing & publishing can take up to 48 hours, depending on how long the video is (and how many clips, transitions, titles, etc., the project is using). This small video took about 6 hours to process & publish.
  • Interface is sometimes buggy, particularly with the labeling of clip times (in one click it’s 7 seconds, drag the slider ever-so-slightly and you jump up to 27 seconds).
  • You are limited to clips of under 15 minutes in length.
  • Little control over audio track.

The takeaway:

  • Awesome utility for quick & dirty on-the-fly edits
  • good go-to when other software isn’t available
