Now for years, YouTube has been the largest video-sharing site, but there are few things that are not working well for the company. The company quietly publicized that its Photo slideshows and Video Editor features will be shut in just 2 months. It appears that the tools are not used by individuals to permit keeping them active, so they are being “retired.”
The users are cautioned that the videos will remain accessible that are already published, whereas the project at present ongoing in the Video Editor must be accomplished before its closure, that is, on September 20. The shutdown will make the YouTubers to shift to third-party tools for video editing. Marissa, the community manager, broke the news on the YouTube Help Forum, stating:
“We wanted you all to know that the Photo slideshows and Video Editor will be shut down on September 20, 2017. Limited usage is been observed for these features; thus, we are departing them to concentrate our efforts on creating new tools and enhancing on other prevailing features. The users will have 2 months to settle any video projects prior to entirely turning off the features. After that, the user will no longer have access to the Video Editor to projects, but already published videos with the Video Editor will not be impacted.”
However, the video Manager’s Enhancements feature will remain intact. The user, with Enhancements, can endure to improve their uploaded videos with edits such as blurring, filters, and trimming.The user can even download their own videos using Google Takeout or YouTube in 720p to recover their original files if they are seeking to remix their uploaded videos into a fresh video.Several paid and free third-party editing tools are also accessible if users are searching for new editing software.
