Top 10 Sites for Video Editing

Editing a video is a valuable skill to learn when dealing w/ 21st century technology. This is a tool that most educators/students learn in an educational setting. While most districts have a specific app that they like to use (iMovie, Movie Maker, etc), this might not be the case, and especially for those users at home. That being said, I've decided to create a list of my favorite sites for editing a video which is a valuable tool for technology literacy.

Top 10 Sites for Video Editing
  1. JayCut - One of the most popular online video editors around. Users of iMovie should feel right at home w/ this excellent looking site.
  2. Stroome - A great collaborative site that allows users to upload video and edit by adding, transitions, effects, audio, etc.
  3. Drag On Tape - A innovative site that is very easy to use. All a user has to do is search for a video and then drag-and-drop it into the timeline editor. Once a video is dropped into edit mode a user can add text, crop, etc.
  4. Pixorial - Is a wonderful site for uploading (or sending in the mail) video that can be stored online and then edited. A user can add an intro, crop, and add audio (stock audio too) to edit their video and then order a DVD or share/embed into a site.
  5. My Brainshark - Is a very interesting site that offers a lot of features to their users. A user can upload any number of items such as a slideshow, document, or video and then add audio to their project.
  6. Viewbix - Is a simple site to use for adding an interactive linkable button in a YouTube or Facebook video.
  7. Overstream - A great site for adding comments and subtitles to a video. Once a video is created it can then be shared online for others to view/rate.
  8. Tube Chop - Is an easy way to crop/edit YouTube videos and then share w/ others.
  9. Splicd - Similar to Tube Chop for cropping a video by adjusting the start/stop times and sharing w/ others.
  10. SnipSnip.It - A site similar to Tube Chop and Splicd for cropping a YouTube video to highlight the important parts.

  1. Thanks for publishing this. Unfortunately, JayCut bites the dust in January 2012 and will no longer be accessible. A big loss- great tool...
