The Youtube video editor is a Testube app ( means it is beta), that lets you edit uploaded videos. I will run through some of the features of this editor.
Editing and Cropping Clips
Youtube / Google has really simplified this process.
First Just drag the Clip to the bottom video bar.
Next just select the Scissors on the Clip in the bottom video bar if you want to crop it
After that, You drag the sliders to the part of the video you want. Then you click save.
Enough Video Editing ... Now Music
Here you can not add music from your collection, but from youtubes. Youtube a huge collection of titles that has the right to use (legally).
Just click the plus button to add the song or drag it to the music bar.
Just add a title and click Publish
This video editor is a good video editor for the Cloud. By no means is this Pro or anything, but for the casual user of youtube it is a match made in heaven. I hope youtube pulls this out of the TestTube and in to youtube editing arsenal.
