Natalie Ediger, November 16, 2017· Digital Learning

Who doesn’t know it, you have a great video and want to edit it quickly and easily online, be it privately or professionally. It’s good to have a video editor at hand.

You don’t always need expensive professional software, you can also achieve a lot with online video editing tools. That’s why we thought we’d make a list of the top video editors.
Nowadays almost everyone has a camera, whether it is a digital camera, a mobile phone or a game console, cameras are always available and ready to hand.

Considering the sheer mass of video material that is only uploaded to Youtube every minute, after all 300 hours, you can easily see how important videos have become.

Online video editors are actually suitable for everyone who would like to improve or edit their videos a little without being able or wanting to use complex software. That can be a small change at the job, for which one does not want to trouble the expert or also simply the private vacation video. In any case, you don’t always have to resort to high-priced software, even free tools can now do a lot. Here are some of our favorite tools:
