I'm looking for a simple free online video editor that:

  • works on Chrome
  • can add pictures to a video (no need for fancy transitions)
  • can cut out pieces within the video (alternatively just merge videos to one)
  • adds no watermark
  • allows me to download the video to my computer

I had a hard time finding something like this. But last time I had to edit a video I actually found a tool like this, but I can't remember the site.

Keep in mind, that it needs to be a website. No software, that I need to install. I now used wevideo, but it adds a watermark and is actually too powerful. Best would be a tool, that fits the above criteria and does nothing more. If it helps: I don't need to mess with the audio at all. I'll remove it later.

  • If you're willing to lose the last criteria, Youtube actually has an in-built video editor that fulfils the other requirements.

  • @Huey I thought you can even download it from YouTube again, after posting. I thought about that, but I don't want to use my existing Google-Account and Google makes it hard to create a "fake" Account. There must be something else out there.

You can use YouTube Editor.

It has all the requirements you mentioned above and if you want to download a video to your PC just add an ss (like www.ssyoutube.com/…) before the link and it will redirect you to the download page itself.

And I guess it's not that hard to make a fake account too, you just need an alternative email address to verify you and this 10 Minute Mail can help you with that. It will provide you with a temporary email on his website and then use it for Google.

  • Just tried to create an account. I'm aware of similar services like 10 Minute Mail. But Google even needs a phone number for verification. Is there something similar for text messages? Decoy Digits doesn't seem to work right now.

  • Update: Doesn't even work with a fake Decoy Digits number. Google says This phone number cannot be used for verification.
