YouTube Offers Online Video Editor

It won't replace Final Cut Pro, but now you can perform simple edits on video clips in your YouTube account.  For more information see the announcement on YouTube's blog and the overview at the Getting Started: YouTube's Video Editor page.

As described by YouTube,  the Video Editor lets you:
  • Combine multiple videos you’ve uploaded to create a new longer video
  • Trim at the beginning and / or ending of your videos
  • Add a soundtrack from our AudioSwap library
  • Create new videos without worrying about file formats, and publish the new video to YouTube with one click (no new upload is required)
This is sure to be a popular tool and I am guessing that YouTube will eventually add more features to supplement this basic functionality.  If the comments on the blog posting are any indication, there is great demand for simplifying video production, editing, and delivery.
