Editors' Review

YouTube Movie Maker is a complete solution for helping you create, upload, and manage your YouTube videos, all from one streamlined interface. Whether you need to create videos for work, or you just like to do it for fun, you'll enjoy the convenience of having all of these tools in one place.

Pros

Adding and arranging: When you're ready to make a movie, your first step will be to choose what type of files to add. Options include Video, Audio, Image, Icon, and Lyric. You can add any and all of these to the same project and then move them around on the Timeline until you have them where you want them. And if you're new to this type of program, there's a convenient Movie Wizard to guide you through the process.

Direct publishing: When you think you have all of your clips, images, and other files in place, you can preview your movie right from the app's main interface. And if you're happy with what you see, all you have to do is click the button for Publish to YouTube to get your video online. Alternately, you can save the finished product to your computer to upload or distribute later on.

Cons

Interface design: While the layout of the interface is clear and functional, the color scheme definitely leaves something to be desired. A lot of the text is in gray or brown lettering on a black background, and some menus are even light gray on dark gray, making them almost impossible to read. There are several skins available for this program as well, and they all have the same issues in at least some parts of the interface.

Bottom Line

YouTube Movie Maker is a convenient and agile tool to help you create videos that you can then directly publish online. The free version does put a 5-minute time limit on videos, but there is no limit on how many videos you can make or how long you can use the program for, and there is no watermark on published videos.

"Good but...."

October 06, 2014  |  By HomeTheaterDave

 |  Version: YouTube Movie Maker 10.28

Pros

I never could get it to work...

Cons

1. Too much of an advertisement for their upgraded versions of this movie maker.
2. Far too complex for it's own good. I don't have weeks to watch tutorials on how to use this software.

Summary

I never was able to figure out how to use this movie maker. Far too complex and I'm too busy to watch their many lengthy tutorials.

"good video editing software, and good service."

March 18, 2014  |  By Sadior

 |  Version: Youtube Movie Maker 9.06

Pros

I think the new version is the best, does everything i need from a editing software, cut, trim, crop, join, rotate, pip, sepcial effects, green screen, etc. all i need already has. and the service is so good, i had a special need, i just mailed to the service people, then i got a free special version to help me within 2 days, that's so good. and i like the new lyric maker module so much, it helps me easy to make nice lyrics videos for my youtube, the new video template module is nice too, now i won't continually have to create videos from scratch. i can make videos utilizing the same objects repeatedly, that's so cool.

Cons

the free edition no watermark, but limits the max length of the created video, although it's enough for me to make lyrics video for youtube, but i still like to remove this limit.

Summary

best editing software I've used, i recommed this to every youtube video makers.

"Easy to use"

August 31, 2013  |  By annebrehm49

 |  Version: Youtube Movie Maker 6.35

Pros

Creates fantastic lyric videos
Easy to use
Lots of effect choices

Cons

Free isn't always FREE
Seems to limit you to how many videos you can create with FREE Edition

Summary

The program itself is very good, I like it very much, but usually when you see free, it really isn't free at all and this program is no exception. I've only created 3 videos and now it only previews, plays and exports 6 seconds of video and no more, but nowhere does it say that you're limited to how many videos you can make, just that some of the features are unavailable in the free version. Well obviously this is a hidden glitch because if it was FREE as they say then why is it limiting me now? I even uninstalled the program and removed any extra files and re-installed it and it did the same thing! I also sent them a email asking why and so far no response!!! This needs to be fixed because this makes me not want to buy it because of false advertising!!!

"excellent, like it very much."

August 07, 2013  |  By KuriyamaK

 |  Version: Youtube Movie Maker 6.35

Pros

cool lyrics video maker, cool video/audio capture, easy to use, good quality, many cool font effects and cool special effects, etc.
and i like the "videos in video" and "change color effect" so much.

Cons

free edition limits the max of created video 5 mins, but it's enough for me, i always make short lyric/music videos and beauty gurus for my channel.

Summary

excellent program, free edition is good enough for normal youtube maker, recommend.

"Unlimited trial version, produces poor video quality"

July 07, 2013  |  By Volderexa

 |  Version: Youtube Movie Maker 6.35

Pros

- excellent for making lyric videos
- very easy and straightforward use
- many other features available despite being a 'free' trial version

Cons

- video quality of final product is very poor
- cannot move the subtitles/lyrics around the screen. They are in fixed positions.

Summary

Don't get carried away with the word 'free' especially for a video editing software like this. Before you even download it, know that it cannot produce high quality videos as its final product until you upgrade(as in 'buy') the actual product. You will be spending a lot of time working and watching your video at the preview screen only to find out later that it's quality will be reduced when published. It has many amazing features though. Give it a try.

"Crippleware; max 5 mins free edition"

May 20, 2013  |  By skaizun

 |  Version: Youtube Movie Maker 6.35

Pros

It took me a while to figure out how to use YouTube Movie Maker, and, since the features are limited (see Cons), I didn't see the point of trying anything more complex, such as adding text, assuming that's even possible.

Cons

Screen designed for high-res (i.e., small footprint), but I have a low-res screen, and found it difficult to view. However, I made the attempt, and after adding 2 video files totalling about 1-1/2 hours, I tried to save it, but YouTube Movie Maker said that the free edition can go only up to 5 minutes. To be fair, it does say that features are limited in the free version.

Summary

It took me a few minutes to figure out how to add a couple of video files, but it's a little clunky and hard to use (I have Windows Movie Maker and other, similar, video editing software). When I discovered that I couldn't save my work, I removed the program from my computer.
