WeVideo, a startup founded by two Norwegians, has announced that its cloud-based video-editing platform is now available for free on YouTube. The platform allows YouTube users to create and edit their videos on the fly with no additional software needed. All you need is a YouTube account.
The WeVideo YouTube editor has a drag-and-drop interface with multiple options for music, transitions and effects. It also promises to deliver video rendering in record time with expansive and secure storage. The cloud aspect of the platform means that users will be able to use the editor anytime, anywhere through the browser of their smartphone, tablet or computer.
According to Jostein Svendsen, CEO of WeVideo:
This partnership gives YouTube users an intuitive cloud-based tool that is far more powerful than most desktop solutions. And with the ability to immediately post completed projects to their respective YouTube channels, video story telling has never been easier.
Founded in 2011 by Jostein Svendsen and Bjørn Rustberggard, WeVideo is currently headquartered in Sunnyvale, California but draws on nearly a half decade of online video experience of its parent organization in Norway, Inspera, which provides video learning for K-12 students in Europe.
