New YouTube Editor Lets You Remix Your Videos Online

YouTube has launched a brand new video editor that allows users to easily remix their own videos and turn them into brand new video creations. The editor, which has a super simple interface, lets users create clips using pieces of their own videos and music from an AudioSwap library of tunes. Read more about the new editor and see a video we made with it after the jump.

The new YouTube Video Editor was announced on the Google Operating System blog yesterday. The post recalled the fact that YouTube launched a more advanced Flash-based video editing system called the YouTube Remixer back in 2007. However, the service was discontinued, as “it was slow and buggy.” This new system is a lot more simplified, but seems to work quite well. I tried it out and created the video below in under 5 minutes.
