WeVideo offers some advanced video editing, but at a higher price than the other two solutions below. It’s got some of the features people need. It does more trimming a single clip, putting a title on it and sharing it. There’s a useful Timeline Editing mode that looks a lot like programs people use on a Mac or PC. However, WeVideo limits the free version so much it’s almost useless and charges about $50 for the Pro version with all the bells and whistles. Their free service includes 5GB of storage, watermarks on only 720p video and up to 5 minutes of published video per month.
- The file to be used for your video can be uploaded from several sources, such as: OneDrive, Instagram, Facebook, Flickr, Dropbox, Box, Picasa, and so on.
- It has 5GB of space and there's no file size restrictions. However, the larger the file, the longer it will take to upload it.
- It allows the user to access and reuse the uploaded media.
- There's no option to drag and drop the media files.
A Strong but Expensive Option.
- It's packed with small, but high-quality features, such as adapting the pace of the video in order to match the audio.
- You can download a 360P with a free account.
- Videos can be shared directly to Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and even through email.
- Less advanced than WeVideo, but it still has a number of good features, such as the adjusting video clip speed.
- When adding clips, there's no way to drag and drop the files from a folder to Stupeflix, but it's possible to select multiple files and upload them all tat the same time.
- Files larger than 40 MB can't be uploaded for free.
Probably not a good choice. Simplest but Least Powerful
YouTube Video Editor
Grab video from your YouTube account and drag it to the simple storyboard timeline at the bottom of the page. Then drag some audio from the computer to the audio section below the video line. There’s also a music button above the video clips on the top center of the screen. Click it to find music already stored on YouTube and marked for creative commons usage.
Add photos from your Google Photos account or by uploading them from the computer.
Users can trim or split their clips, add titles, audio and transitions. Then, save them to YouTube. YouTube also lets a user include creative commons video clips and music that other users uploaded. It’s hard to do things like fading out audio at the end of a video.
- It has a wide range of creative commons for you to search, edit, remix, and so on.
- Drag and drop feature.
- Direct upload once you're done editing.
- Unfortunately, it seems like it's impossible to shorten the music clips.
- Even though you can use multiple songs, they don't overlap. This can result to a choppy audio.
