YouTube Shorts, a TikTok competitor
One of the main features that helped make TikTok a success is now coming to YouTube's own short-form video platform YouTube Shorts.
On Thursday, YouTube announced that it's beginning to roll out a video "remixing" feature on YouTube Shorts. The feature allows YouTube Shorts creators to easily cut a one to five-second video clip out of any eligible YouTube video, including other Shorts, and include it in their new original Shorts video creation. If users are familiar with TikTok, they'll know how similar features like stitching have aided in the creation of popular reaction videos and collaborations between creators.
To begin remixing, simply tap the "Create" button on any suitable video. YouTube is responsible for this video.
To get started, creators just need to hit "Create" on any qualified YouTube video while using the YouTube mobile app once the video remixing functionality has been rolled out to your account.
Then, from the list of remix possibilities that appears, select "Cut." Simply select the video part you wish to chop into. Creators can also cut pieces from other Shorts videos, as previously noted. After tapping on the three dot menu on a Shorts video, users will find those remix possibilities.
To get your 1-5 second segment, use the "Cut" option. YouTube is responsible for this video.
Short videos including remixed chunks from other users' work will include credit to the source video. If a Shorts producer remixes your material, YouTube will automatically link back to your clip, potentially expanding your exposure.

Users may already alter audio from other videos on YouTube. With the addition of the video remix tool, the firm is solidifying its position as a competitor to TikTok in the short-form video arena. TikTok has increased the duration of videos on its site to 10-minutes, indicating that the longform leader is also a big contender.
YouTubers who don't want their videos remixed can turn off the option in their YouTube Studio dashboard. It's worth noting that you can't opt out of the Shorts sampling feature while you're watching other YouTube Shorts videos.
Over the following few weeks, shorts artists will notice a new video remixing tool in their account.
YouTube also revealed that YouTube Shorts will be available on even more YouTube platforms, in addition to the video remixing functionality. Previously only available in the YouTube mobile app, viewers can now watch YouTube Shorts on desktop, mobile browser, and tablets in the video player designed just for them. On all of these platforms, users will be able to swipe to watch the following Shorts video. These devices will have access to the Shorts shelf on a user's YouTube Home page as well as the Shorts tab, making it easier to discover new Shorts content outside the mobile app.
YouTube appears to be pleased with the way Shorts has turned out, with billions of views. However, unlike TikTok, the company is not yet omnipresent with short-form video content. This is unlikely to change as a result of the additional features. They will, however, undoubtedly assist in moving things in YouTube's favour. Most significantly, they'll provide YouTube Shorts creators more options for creating and distributing their work.
