How to Use YouTube Shorts to Take Clips From Videos

The new feature is an extension of existing “remix” tool that allowed creators to sample audio from other videos into their own YouTube Shorts posts.

The YouTube Shorts feature is similar to popular TikTok tool Stitch.

The company said that music videos with copyrighted content from YouTube’s music partners are not eligible to be remixed.

The new update will allow creators to clip 1- to 5-second segments from long form videos and Shorts to use in new short-form content.

The streaming platform also said that YouTube Shorts is now accessible via web and tablet.

TikTok competitor YouTube Shorts has allowed creators to use video clips from billions of videos from YouTube platform, albeit with some rules.
