YouTube used to offer its own free, built-in editor to help you fine-tune your videos, but Google retired the tool in September. YouTube Video Manager still lets you trim or split your video at certain points, adjust the lighting and color, and remove shaky camera motions. But you need a good editor if you want to truly tweak your videos.
Don’t despair, there are other programs you can use to edit your videos—and they’re free. Windows 10 users can tap into the built-in Photos app to edit videos. Apple iOS users can take advantage of apps such as Videorama. And Android users can edit their videos via Videoshop Video Editor. Let’s check out these programs to see how you can edit your YouTube videos on any device.
For our purposes here, we’ll assume you’ve already shot your video and now need a way to edit it.
