  1. The YouTube video editor allows you to edit your videos online without having to download them to your computer. It creates a new video from the clips that you've merge together…right within YouTube

  2. Herman, thanks for making this video. The timing was perfect. Is it possible to merge two different videos together with the YouTube editor?

  3. Thanks for sharing how to split and merge video clips in YouTube . . . I don't do enough editing here. I need to learn this stuff!

  4. I was confused about how to split and merge my youtube clips using my youtube creator studio… your video really helped, thanks 🙂

  5. HI Herman, you have been so helpful to me, I have one more question about editing in the YouTube editor. I edited two of my previously uploaded videos in the YT editor and it generated a new video without the view count, likes and comments from the original video. Do you know if it's possible to transfer the views, likes and comments from the original video to the newly created video? 🙂

  6. After you split clip a video, can you undo the split clip if you don’t like where you split it and try again? Possibly with a command key combo….just curious. Thank you.

  7. Hello. Great video! I have an 1 hour and 40 minute video I recorded via hangouts/youtube live stream. I want to split the video into 2 separate videos. I have split them where I want, but can't figure out how to save each as a separate video. Example: first split is at mark 43:16 and I want that to be the first stand alone video. The remaining (beyond the 43:16) I want to be a second stand alone. Is there a way to save the split as 2 separate videos? Thanks for your time.

  8. good but that background music ruins it, can hardly hear what i need to hear , for me its too distracting.

  9. Finally, someone who does't take 15 minutes to explain something so simple. All I was looking for was to get past a small issue with 'split' and you didn't waste my time like other you tubers do. THANK YOU!

  10. I recently read the ideal length of a Youtube video is two minutes and fifty-four seconds. Many of my videos are too long. I have 102 videos and merely 6,129 views. One of the songs I wrote has about 1,500 views on Facebook, but only about 50 views on Youtube. Will this method work to divide a 30-minute video of mine into ten separate three-minute videos? Thank you for uploading these informative videos.

  11. Hello! I have all my videos (personal and for a volunteer organization) together on my own 'site' on YouTube. How can I move the volunteer videos to its own site? Thanks!

  15. Good Day IsiteBuild,

  19. Please answer my following questions (as per the youtube's new policy of REUSE and duplicate content)
    1. Can I merge some of my youtube videos into a single video and upload it to my channel while keeping the original videos without deleting them. is is content duplication?
    2. Can i shorten a video by removing useless parts of a video and upload it without deleting the original video? is it again content duplication?
    please answer !!!
