How to make YouTube video's using creative commons

Updated on February 20, 2013

The possibilities are endless when you start to adventure into the creative commons section of the YouTube video editor. Whether you are looking to create a video about flowers, or a music video about bugs, there is no end to the amount of material available on this free platform. Creating an account is easy and if you already have one you can be just minutes away from expressing yourself in a digitally mastered vision of what you want to express... Yes this tool is too fun.

By clicking 'upload' you will be taken to a new screen and presented with 4 more choices,

'Webcam capture',

'Photo slideshow',

'Google+ hangout',

or 'Video editor'.

Click video editor and you will be brought to this screen.

From here you will simply drag & drop files to adjust time lengths. By grabbing the beginning or end you can shorten or lengthen clips.

In the upper left hand corner below 'YouTube' you can see 5 icons, a video camera (used to upload videos from your computer), 'cc' with a circle around it (this is where you can find clips of just about anything), a music note (tons of music, but please note if you use this music you cannot monetize your video), two center pointing triangles (these are transitions you can use between clips), and an a(a an and you can use this icon to add text).

I stumbled on to the following video and was amazed to find how easy it was and how much is available, the editor has limited effects you can use but for basic video construction you couldn't ask for much more.

After seeing this the creative juices exploded and I was on a mission... But what to create... I couldn't decide... With so many choices I stuck with what I know and like, nature & heavy metal music... It's a strange combo I know, but the following are a few videos of how I say it goes.

      Thanks Eddy, I hope it's helpful

      @peachpurple, you may need to have your account partnered, or click the '$' sign icon in the video manager section (it should turn green for 'monetizing') If your account is new it may not be set up for this option, i'm not sure about the technical parts of having ads yet.
