Crop YouTube Video Free for Uploading | WinX Video Editor 2018-2019

How to Crop YouTube Video Clips Free for Uploading with YouTube Video Editor?

YouTube surfers used to crop the uploaded YouTube videos through the default Video Editor on YouTube. However, Video Editor and Photo slideshows have gone away from September 20th, 2017. Luckily, any videos already published with the Video Editor were not affected and users could continue to enhance uploaded videos with edits such as cropping, trimming, blurring, and filters through YouTube Enhancements in Video Manager. But to crop a YouTube video that hasn't been on YouTube and is to be uploaded to YouTube, users may have to turn to other free or paid third-party YouTube cropping tools, as suggested by indianexpress.com.

No matter your goal is to crop the videos downloaded from YouTube, or crop videos before uploading to YouTube, WinX YouTube Editor is the right yet free solution for you.
