We didn’t see this one coming at all, but now that it’s here, it makes a lot of sense, YouTube now has a built in video editor. So, instead of editing your films in iMovie, then uploading them to YouTube, you can now do simple cut edits, add music, and toss up simple titles directly on the web service. All for free.

What’s this got to do with an Apple site? A TON.

The theoretial iPad version of iMovie may have some serious competition, because YouTube’s editor “works” in mobile Safari. That means that you can directly mashup your video directly on YouTube instead of using something like iMovie, assuming, of courses, that Adobe can get all the kinks worked out of an HTML5/Javascript version.

I say “works” because Apple’s iPad and iPhone are not 100% supported, and some of the features have been disabled or are straight up broken.

Somewhere, at this very moment, Flash is in a full on panic attack.
