Exclusive Video: YouTube Seeks to Close Lag Time with New Online Editing Tool

SAN BRUNO, Calif  -- Late yesterday, YouTube launched an ambitious new product to allow users to edited uploaded videos in a range of file formats.  

In our tests, we have found that the process is slow, meaning there is a substantial lag time between keyboards commands and edit tasks. The slowness appears on the YouTube side as we use a fast 50 mps connection.

Latency has been an issue for online editing tools and YouTube is working on eliminating the lag time, we were told yesterday in this video interview with YouTube engineer Rushabh Doshi.

We visited YouTube headquarters to an overview of the new editing tool.
