In this video, we’ll show you how you can
do some simple edits to your videos when you’re using YouTube on a computer. To get started, select your profile picture,
then choose “YouTube Studio (beta)”. In the side menu, click the “Videos” tab. Now click the video you’d like to make changes
to. From here, select “Editor” in this side
menu. You can choose to trim the start or end of
your video, or cut out parts in the middle. To trim the beginning or end, click “Trim”. You’ll see a blue bar at each end of the
video. Hover your mouse over the blue bar until it
turns white. Now you can drag to the part you want to keep. Click “Preview” to see the edited video. If you’d like to make further adjustments,
click “Edit trim”. If you’d like to keep your changes, click
“Save”, then “Save” again in this window. It may take a few hours for YouTube to update
your video. Now we’ll show you how to trim in the middle
of your video, like this part. Click the starting point you
want to trim, then click “Trim”. Now select “Split”. Drag the white bar to the point where you
want the video to start again. By the way, you can trim multiple parts in
one video. Once you’re set, click “Preview”. Like before, if you want to make additional
changes, click “Edit Trim”. Once you’re finished, click “Save” twice. And that’s it! Subscribe to our channel for more YouTube

    I don't like this Studio editor because at 0:50 it is specified that this action is irreversible forcing me to revert back to "Creator Studio Classic" to re-trim the video if I trimmed important part by mistake and want to undo it.

    It seems I'm the only person on Earth who regularly needed to save copies of edited videos… I need both the original video and the edited version to be preserved in my library, but near as I can tell the update did away with that feature entirely. I mean I get it, most YouTubers will only need to save the version that doesn't include them falling to the ground, but the ability to save copies of edited videos was literally THE ONLY THING I actually needed from the editor. If I'm just missing something and the feature still exists, then I would appreciate some guidance, but it seems to me that it's no longer available. I'd hate to think that my only option is to upload two full versions of the exact same video…

    Oh and switching to Creator Studio Classic to make the edits doesn't help. If I try, I just get shown an error screen that says "Sorry, this video cannot be edited."

    Dear TeamYoutube help.
    I have an issue regarding the video editor feature in youtube studio. I was editing a live stream that i did a few days ago that was 3 hours and 5 minutes long. I edited a few minutes out of it and it said the usual "Video is being processed please check back later" thing. The next day I checked it. Now keep in mind I never had an issue with this in the past. It has been very successful. When I checked it it still said "Video is being processed please check back later" it never changed. I thought ok I'll just edit a different video. I can't do that either.. And as of the today it's been 2 days later it still hasn't changed. And yes I tried logging out and I tried reloading the page multiple times and nothing changed. Please help me with this. Thank you.

    To Save: After you press TRIM then SPLIT, you have to move the original blue line to the new blue line and then PREVIEW will work.
    The video is wrong, it's not the white line.

    YouTube Studio beta doesn't work on operating systems older than Windows 7 (e.g. Win Vista) under any browser (Firefox, Opera, Chrome etc.). The message "We're out of sync" is displayed. Then it's only possible to use the classic version, which works fine. Perhaps this is due to the fact that the above Internet browsers no longer update on older operating systems. Nevertheless, this will be a big problem for creators who still use such systems. A mandatory change to the beta version will practically mean for them the need to install a newer operating system and the cost of purchasing a license, which is not always possible (for example, lack of drivers). I am kindly asking you to solve this problem, and maybe some tips on how to go to the beta version on older software, where the classic version works without problems.

    I just spent 1.5 hours on trying to trim 11 seconds from the beginning and little bit from the end. THERE IS NO WAY TO VIEW THE FINAL TRIM??? WTH? When I hit SAVE it felt like shot in a dark hoping the bars were placed in place intended. This is not easy dear youtube, I love you you are letting us down. The previous version was so much easier. Please make it for real people. Not happy right now!

    It does not allow me to chop out more than one section at a time. When you try to delete more than one section in the middle the video preview or play head will not work at all. So you have to just do one edit only, click save and wait hours for the entire video to re-encode with the one section removed, then you have go through the whole process again to remove a 2nd section. Such a poor system. I use Google Chrome browser latest Version 76.0.3809.132 (Official Build) (64-bit), Mac 10.12.5 on 2015 macbook air with 8GB RAM. The computer should be capable of handling it.

    I have one long video that I want to trim into 7 smaller videos. If I save the first trim, it erases the long one and replaces it with the new shorter ones. Do I have to upload the long video again to make the next smaller video from it and so on? I don't see any other way. It says "Save" and not "Save as"

    This feature is useless for small creators who have big videos. For example, there’s a part in one of my videos that I’d rather forget about and want to remove. Thing is, the video has over 100,000 views. My entire channel was removed from the Partner Program for no reason whatsoever and now I can’t do a thing. Why bother adding this feature if you can’t even use it on bigger videos at all?
