How to cut video online (even large sizes) using the Online Video Cutter service
This simple service is perfect for trimming videos up to 500 GB in size. You can upload materials not only from a computer, but also from the Google Drive cloud storage or a URL link (for everything to go well, you need a direct link to the file, the address of which ends in the video format. That is, you cannot download directly from YouTube).
Online Video Cutter understands a large number of formats and containers, and the server itself is quite fast. You can crop a video not only by duration, but also select the desired area (crop).
Exports are made in resolution from 240p to 1080p in formats such as MP4, FLV, AVI, MPG or 3GP. In addition to the computer, the video can be saved directly to Google Drive or Dropbox.

How to trim YouTube videos
YouTube itself can handle large files just fine, but there are some drawbacks.
Firstly, the service is tailored for loading finished videos, and editing tools are presented here as additional functions. That is, it is as easy and intuitive as it is not possible to cut a video in Online Video Cutter.
Secondly, the video processing speed is much slower, and it also greatly depends on the server load. It may take longer to process.
Thirdly, you won’t be able to download absolutely any video. YouTube is actively fighting for the copyright of copyright holders and immediately after downloading, a deep analysis takes place, which may not miss the video for further processing or publication.
If you are satisfied with all these three “buts”, then let’s start uploading, cropping, and exporting the video:
1… Log in to your Google account.
2… Click on the “Add a video»And drag the clip to the special area. Specify as access “Access by link“.
3… After the end of the download and processing process, click “Done“.
4… Click on your account avatar and go to the menu “YouTube Creative Studio”…
4… In the menu on the right, select the “Video», Hover the cursor over the required video and click on the icon that appears with the image of a pencil.
5. On the screen that opens, in the menu on the right, select “Editor”…
At the end of the process, click “Save“.
