Not The “Best,” But A List… Of Online Video Editors


We’re just starting to do some video-making in our Intermediate English class, and I’ve been trying to figure out the best way to do some video-editing. For now, this is not a “The Best…” list. Instead, it’s just a “list.”

For now, here are my choices for Not The “Best,” But A List…Of Online Video Editors:

There are two other sites (that are similar to each other) and are limited in their video-editing capabilities, and in the length of the videos that can be uploaded — Animoto, and Flixtime.

Magisto is a new Animoto-like service that lets you upload several short videos and it then somehow “recognizes” the most important parts and turns it into a magically-produced one minute video. You can read more about it at Go2Web2.0.

CHeck out “YouTube Makes Dramatic Addition To Video Editing Features.”

HOW TO: Get the Most From YouTube Editor is a video from Mashable.

Creaza Movie Editor is another video tool that might be worth looking at. I haven’t tried it yet, though, and would be interested in hearing from anyone who has.

Universal Subtitles is an experimental online application that seems to make it quite easy to add subtitles to any video. Of course, YouTube has introduced an automatic system for creating subtitles, but I haven’t tried that yet. Has anybody else? What do you think?

We Video is a new online video-editing tool. You can read more here. Here’s an update on it from Richard Byrne.

As I mentioned earlier, please share other suggestions and your experiences working with the ones I’ve listed. I’ll revise this list in a month or two after I actually edit videos with them.
