Could touching up clips in Windows Live Movie Maker or iMovie before uploading them to YouTube soon be a thing of the past? The unofficial Google Operating System blog reports that Google has added a new video editor to its popular video sharing site.
Accessible right here, the YouTube video editor lets folks grab videos from their uploads, cut them, splice them together, and pick out a new audio track from a collection of apparently free-to-use music clips:
The simple drag-and-drop interface has a distinct Google look, feels pretty snappy, and doesn't appear to use Adobe Flash. (Video clips themselves still play via the Flash plug-in, though.) As the blog post notes, Google experimented with a Flash YouTube video editor based on Adobe Premiere Express three years ago. That tool was reportedly "slow and buggy," however, and it since seems to have disappeared from the YouTube website.
