18 Online Tools to Edit, Mix and Enhance your Videos

Whether you need basic tools that let you easily cut-off desired scenes, add background music, integrate animations, etc. or something more powerful, it’s all here. While each service offers different editing features, functionality is the same everywhere, i.e. (1) upload your video either from your PC or grab it directly from the web (i.e Youtube, Metacafe etc…), (2) edit/mix/enhance it, and (3) share it with others.

    Remove Jumpcut from your list. Here is why:

    As of June 15, 2009 the Jumpcut.com site has been officially closed. This was a difficult decision to make, but it’s part of the ongoing prioritization efforts at Yahoo!

    Thanks for your understanding and thanks for being a part of Jumpcut.

    Hi, i need a certain video editing tool and i wondered if anyone could tell me where to get it, or what its officially called. Basically, i want to play two video clips simultaneously, and then show half of each one. So if i record two videos of me on a couch, one video one the right side and one video on the left, I can edit it so that both mees are on the couch at the same time. Does anyone know how to do that?

    There is a new cool way to share your locally hosted video stuff with your friends.
    It is called seetoo.com.
    You do not have to upload your files, there is no file size limits,
    it works instantly and you and your buddy/buddies watch it synchronized!
    Almost all formats are supported.
    It is really cool!
    Just run a short setup and start watching videos with your buddies in
    two clicks. The viewer (buddy) does not have to install anything.
