‘Cropping’ vs Cutting – What’s the difference?


Cutting a video reduces its watching time, whereas cropping a video “resizes” it to fit a different aspect ratio. Cut your video to make it brief, and crop it to make it the right size.

Which formats can I use to upload my video to YouTube?


YouTube supports videos in the following formats - MP4, 3GPP, AVI, FLV, MOV, MPEG4, MPEGPS, WebM and WMV. VEED automatically downloads videos in the MP4 format to ensure compatibility with YouTube.

What’s the best aspect ratio for YouTube videos?


The recommended aspect ratio for YouTube is 16:9. Adjust your aspect ratio to prevent black pillars from appearing beside your video. Or, use VEED’s Preset Canvas Sizes to automatically download your videos with the right aspect ratio.


What’s the difference between ‘cut video’, ‘trim video’ and ‘crop video’?


‘Cut’ video and ‘Trim’ video refer to editing the duration (time) of a video clip, ie. making it shorter. ‘Cropping’ a video refers to removing part of the video’s image - for example if a someone walks into shot, in the background of your video, you can crop them out later, by removing that part of the image. You can ‘Crop’ your videos with VEED super-easily (as well as Cut/Trim them) all you have to do is click on the video’s image and drag the corners of the video until the preview shows just the part of the image you want. It’s that simple!

What they say
about VEED

Veed is a great piece of browser software with the best team I've ever seen.

Veed allows for subtitling, editing, effect/text encoding, and many more advanced features that other editors just can't compete with. The free version is wonderful, but the Pro version is beyond perfect. Keep in mind that this a browser editor we're talking about and the level of quality that Veed allows is stunning and a complete game changer at worst.

The Best & Most Easy to Use Simple Video Editing Software!

I had tried tons of other online editors on the market and been disappointed. With VEED I haven't experienced any issues with the videos I create on there.

It has everything I need in one place such as the progress bar for my 1-minute clips, auto transcriptions for all my video content, and custom fonts for consistency in my visual branding.
