YouTube video editing

I love the new video tweaking/editing functions on YouTube.

Today I produced a tutorial on how to configure a headset with microphone on Windows 7 because I couldn’t find any out there and our students need support in this.

I created the video with no sound, uploaded it and then once YouTube finished processing it, I could ‘Swap audio’ and pick a soundtrack. The ones offered were within 10 seconds of the length of my video. I couldn’t choose when to start and stop the audio, but for a quick fix it was okay and I found something I liked.

I then realised I forgot to trim the ending of my video. Rather than having to delete, edit, upload – YouTube now has a handy, dandy trim feature. Lovely!
