YouTube Intros Cloud-based Video Editing

Available through TestTube (sort of like Gmail's Labs for YouTube), the Google team announced a new 'edit video in the cloud' feature via the YouTube blog. You can use it to add a soundtrack to your current videos, mash videos together or edit out slow or boring parts at the beginning or end of your videos.

YouTube's Rushabh Doshi, Software Engineer, and Joshua Siegel, Product Manager, explain:

  • Combine multiple videos you’ve uploaded to create a new longer video
  • Trim the beginning and/or ending of your videos 
  • Add soundtracks from our AudioSwap library of tens of thousands of songs
  • Create new videos without worrying about file formats and publish them to YouTube with one click -- no upload necessary

It's pretty self-explanatory but if you need a demo, check out the moderately annoying video from YouTube's rewboss below.
