How to make a compilation of YouTube videos

It is now easier than ever to create it totally by yourself. You don’t need any sophisticated software or an editing guru to help you. It is even possible to merely use YouTube URLs to make your brand-new film — remember about the copyrights, when you are using someone else’s creations.

Our online tool allows making a compilation video from YouTube clips easily and at no cost.

  1. Upload from YouTube

    You will just need three links to start with. The first one is to the Clideo’s Video Merger tool, and at least two more to some YouTube clips.

    You are not limited to just two links, by the way. In fact, you can have as many as you need, for free and without registration, if your files are up to 500 MB each.

    To upload your first clip, on the main page of the tool, tap the drop-down arrow. Then add your link in the “Paste a URL” field. The tool will start fetching the content, just give it some time.

  2. Change video settings

    Once this first clip is uploaded, you can add more. To the right of the “Add more files” button, tap the drop-down arrow, and then paste the new link. Repeat this as many times as you need.

    All your clips will be visible on the timeline below the preview. You can drag and drop the files to change their order if required. To remove any of them, select the thumbnail and, at the top right of it, tap the X button.

    In the Crop options section, you can select “Zoom & Crop” if it is OK to cut your recording, or “Fit with border” to keep the shot’s width and add borders. Then you can choose any of the predefined aspect ratios — 1:1 for Instagram, 16:9 for YouTube, 9:19 for an Instagram story, and 5:4 for Facebook. Remember to also check other requirements for your video post.

    It is also possible to add a crossfade effect to blend the recordings.

    Optionally, you can add music to your film. And it is OK to use the URL of a video again — the tool will extract the soundtrack only.

    Then hit “Trim audio” to cut out the best part. You can also adjust the volume of the video and audio tracks and turn on the “Loop” option if needed.

    Additionally, at the bottom of your screen, you can see some useful information — the final output duration, size, and format. You can change the latter if needed: if you are planning to share your film on YouTube, we suggest choosing MP4.

    The “Export” button will do the rest of the job. This can take some time, so you can stretch your legs or make a cup of tea.

  3. Download the YouTube compilation

    Have a final look at your movie. If you are happy with what you see, hit “Download” to save it. The “Edit” button will bring you back to the previous screen where you can change the settings.
