YouTube Introduces New Online Video Editing System [News]


Even though desktop video applications like iMovie are fairly easy to use, they may not be the best option for making editing tweaks to your already posted YouTube videos. Or say you upload a production directly from your video cam and you want to make some edits before releasing it to the public. Well, YouTube may now very well have the solution you need. Last week it launched a video editing system which allows you to edit your videos from right inside your account. Many of its features are comparable to what you would find in basic desktop video editing applications.

To edit your productions, simply click on My Videos in your YouTube account, and select the Edit video button. From there you are presented with a menu bar of Quick Fix features, that include trimming, rotating, and stabilizing footage.

You can also add special effects like converting video clips to black and white, Sepia, Cartoon, as well as adjusting the exposure, contrast, saturation and color temperature of your selected video. There is also the familiar I’m Feeling Lucky button that will attempt to do a quick fix of color and lighting issues in your production.


In addition to the above, you can even change the audio soundtrack to your video. However, it will overwrite existing audio in your video.


The YouTube editing system displays side-by-side both your original video and a preview of the changes you make. If the changes you make are not to your liking, the Revert to Original button takes you back to where you started.


Here’s a video overview of the features:

Apple will disconnect ‘obsolete’ first-gen Apple TV from iTunes in May

Apple has announced today it will drop iTunes support for some older devices from May 25. This includes the first generation Apple TV, and also any PC running Windows XP or Vista. The company is introducing new security changes which will prevent those devices from using the latest version of iTunes.
Apple says that the original Apple TV is an "obsolete Apple product" and will not be updated to support security changes. Only those with the second generation of Apple TV or later will be able to access the iTunes store.
Windows XP or Vista users won't be able to use the latest version of iTunes, but older Windows computers can still use previous versions without support from Apple. Those who do so, however, won't be able to make new purchases or re-download previous purchases on that computer. If you're on on XP or Vista, you'll need to upgrade to Windows 7 or later to continue using iTunes normally.
The writing was already on the wall for these devices: Wi…

Windows 10: Microsoft retires HomeGroup

Microsoft plans to remove the HomeGroup functionality from its Windows 10 operating system. The company made the first step towards that goal in the most recent Insider Preview version of Windows 10 as it disabled it in that build.
In "a note about HomeGroup" in the release announcement of the Windows 10 Insider Build, Microsoft confirms that HomeGroup will be retired.
The company introduced HomeGroup in Windows 7 as a new option for home users to access printers, files, and media in home networks. The core idea was to assign all devices to a single HomeGroup to share access to files and printers between all devices.
It is unclear how popular the feature was and is. It is clear however that it was never the only option that Windows users had in this regard, and it was not the best either for certain use cases. You could not add Mac OS X or Linux devices to a HomeGroup for instance.
