How to extract any part of a video for YouTube

Our tool allows you not only cut your video but also convert it to the appropriate format for YouTube. Also if you've recorded your video on a phone, it's probably of the 9:16 aspect ratio, so it's better to resize it first. The best aspect ratio for YouTube is 16:9 but it also depends on the post type.

Among all the other advantages and peculiarities, our tool is free and works online, which means that you don’t have to download anything or buy licensed software. The user’s information is stored for 24 hours only and then it is deleted forever, so our service is safe.
