YouTube Shorts now allows users to remix public YouTube videos

1 Mins read

YouTube has introduced a new feature that allows Shorts creators to remix YouTube videos in public domain. The feature will allow creators to use up to 5 seconds of any video or Shorts, in their own Shorts.

This feature is an upgrade on a similar feature that allows Shorts creators to remix audio found on any public YouTube video or Shorts, and use in their own shorts. Now, the same can be done with videos.

To use remix, Shorts creators will have to tap “create,” then tap “cut” from the remix option. Thereafter, they will be able to choose any available video to sample.

By default, every YouTube video with public privacy setting would be added to Remix. This means that users that do not want their videos added to the feature would have to opt out of the feature manually, through their YouTube Studio dashboard.

If you are familiar with other short-video creating platforms, you will notice that features similar to YouTube’s remix feature have been earlier introduced to TikTok, giving it an edge over its competitors by helping fan collaborative creations between TikTok users. Instagram Reel, and Snapchat Spotlight also has similar feature added in January.

To protect users’ rights, YouTube noted that whenever a video is remixed in a Shorts, the part used from the original video would be linked to the original clip – helping the owner grow their audience as well.

Aside announcing the new feature on Shorts, YouTube also announced that viewing Shorts videos will take a different turn. The company noted that users will be able to watch Short videos via a dedicated video player on desktop, mobile web, and tablets.

Shorts have recorded trillions of views since it was introduced and embedded into YouTube. However, it is still a long way from catching up with Tiktok, and it is unlikely that these features will change that overnight. It, on the other hand, will surely help creators to be more creative with video creation.
