YouTube has updated its built-in video editor, making quick adjustments to your meme-destined clips a less tedious task. The user interface has been redesigned, removing some of the clutter from the previous version, and the many Instagram-style filters can now easily be seen during the editing process. Changes are also easier to make on the fly with the help of real-time, interactive previews. Combined with the service's improved audio editing options, YouTube's Video Editor is shaping up to be a rather resourceful tool for quickly cleaning up footage. The update will be rolling out throughout the day, so be patient if you're still seeing the old interface.
