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:
Stroome is another online video-editing application. Wesley Fryer has an excellent tutorial with screenshots on using it. They’ve just added a feature called “groups” that lets you work with a….group of people to collaboratively edit a video. Because of that additional feature, I’m adding Stroome to The Best Online Tools For Collaboration — NOT In Real Time. Thanks to 10,000 Words for the tip. Their post also explains other Stroome features.
There are three other sites (that are similar to each other) and are much more limited in their video-editing capabilities, and in the length of the videos that can be uploaded — Animoto, Stupeflix, 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.
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?
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.
