Frequently Asked Questions

How do I cut a YouTube Video online?

To cut a YouTube video online with EchoWave, simply copy the video URL from YouTube, paste it into EchoWave's editor, trim it by adjusting the timeline or using the 'Split' function, and then export, save, or share the final edited video.

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

YouTube supports a variety of video upload formats including .MOV, .MPEG4, .MP4, .AVI, .WMV, .MPEGPS, .FLV, 3GPP, WebM, DNxHR, ProRes, CineForm, and HEVC (h265), with MP4 being recommended for its balance of quality and file size.

What’s the best aspect ratio for YouTube videos?

The best aspect ratio for YouTube videos is 16:9, as this is the standard for high-definition videos and will display properly on most devices. YouTube supports other aspect ratios as well, but if your video has a different aspect ratio, it may be displayed with black bars on the sides or top and bottom (letterboxing or pillarboxing) to fit a 16:9 screen. For mobile devices, a vertical (9:16) aspect ratio can also be used, but bear in mind that it might not display as well on desktop or TV screens.
