5 Best Cloud Video Editing Tools

In recent years we have seen many cloud based services offering users the opportunity to work and save their projects to the cloud. Some examples include, cloud accounting  and online project management services. Similarly, other resource intensive tasks such as video editing are also moving gradually to the cloud. One of the primary examples of cloud based video editing is the YouTube video editor. Likewise, there are also many other useful services that are offering users the utility to edit videos online.

YouTube Video Editor

The provision of cloud based video editing solutions means that you no longer have to install resource intensive applications like Premiere Pro. This can help you use only basic screencast  or video rendering tools and do the rest online. For example, you can create a video presentation by capturing content of your PowerPoint slides using Best Free Screen Capturer, Camtasia Studio Add-in or Ezvid and do the editing online after uploading your video to YouTube. Once your video has been uploaded you can join videos, remove frames, add music, insert transitions, trim, rotate and stabilize clips, as well as annotate frames using the YouTube Video Editor. If you have some videos on your channel but haven’t use the editing feature yet, then try out this cloud editing utility by YouTube via the link given below.

ClickBerry Interactivity Creator is not precisely a cloud based video editor but rather a desktop application, however we would recommend this application to people looking for cloud integration and simplicity.
