Youtube Channel Video Manager

Editing on Your YouTube Video Manager Page

There are many editing options available after you have published your video. One thing to note is that there is no way to replace an old video with a different version (even if it’s just a slight revision of the same video) and keep the original view count, comments or ratings. Instead, you may want to try using clickable annotations or link to the new version of the video from your old video.

Go to your channel’s Video Manager

You will see a list of your uploaded videos. Find the video you want to edit, then click the little Edit icon in the middle of the video.

On the Info and Settings page, you’ll see three tabs, depending on your account type:

Basic info: Change video title, description, tags, category, privacy. Note: You can use most characters to fill in the information in the video fields (like title or description), except angle brackets.
Monetization: See the options for monetizing your video. Learn more about monetizing your content.
Advanced settings: Change comments permissions, license, caption, video location, recording date, and 3D video options.

Caution: Be careful; changing a title that is already optimized and ranking well for your keywords is a big mistake!

Tip: Download the YouTube Creator Studio app for iOS or android. The app allows you to manage your YouTube Channel from your mobile device.
Enhancement Options and Features Available after Publishing

You can also make some changes to a video that you’ve already uploaded by using YouTube Video Enhancements. The Enhancement option is constantly adding features, so check it often for updates and ways you can tweak your video that has already been published.

Currently, in order to be eligible for YouTube Video Enhancements, your video must not have received more than 1,000 views; other restrictions apply.

Using enhancements, you can make some of the following improvements and edits to your videos. Note that on videos you have already published, you can’t use Cut/Snip at this time to remove middle segments. This feature is only available before you publish the video. You can only use Trim to remove frames at the beginning or the end.

Auto-fix: Performs a one click-fix to enhance the video’s lighting and color. You can also make manual adjustments to Fill Light, Contrast, Saturation, and Color Temperature by using the sliders
Lighting: Fill Light – Contrast – Saturation – Color Temperature
Stabilize: Adjusts the video to correct any shakiness
Slow Motion: Slow the speed at which your video plays (half speed, quarter speed, eighth speed)
Trim: Clip parts (frames) off the beginning and/or end of your video
Filters: This tab shows pre-set color filters that you can apply to your video to give them a stylish and unique look
Face blurring: Protect the anonymity of people in your video. Click on Special Effects to access this feature
