YouTube users can now edit their own videos online. The Google-owned video-sharing site added an online editing tool this week that allows YouTube users to combine multiple videos, shorten a video or add soundtracks from songs in the AudioSwap library.

The newly created video can be published to YouTube directly from the editing site.

To edit a video, a user drags a thumbnail of the video they want to edit into an empty timeline. The video can then be trimmed or other videos added to make it longer.

YouTube users can only edit videos they have uploaded themselves and not the videos of other users.

The new editor is located at youtube.com/testtube.

iMovie is a desktop application is it not? The youtube editing feature albeit very limited is a web based application. It will be available to things like netbooks and tablet computers that may not be able to handle full blown video editing apps.
