Since it was first introduced, the YouTube Shorts platform has seen some alterations. Regular videos and shorts have always been two different things. However, according to an blog post , YouTube will enable you turn your videos into YouTube Shorts.
TikTok, YouTube Shorts, Instagram, and Snapchat Spotlight are at conflict with one another (if you consider that a thing). These short-form video platforms are fighting tooth and nail for your attention, but let’s be honest: TikTok is in charge here.
As a result, businesses like Facebook (and Instagram, in turn) are emphasizing films that have been randomly chosen for curation. TikTok has been exerting pressure on YouTube since it is eroding its audience and content producers.

This has a rather straightforward process. The first step is to choose a video from your channel and the segment you wish to transform into a short. Since YouTube, regrettably, hasn’t increased the maximum Short length, you can choose up to 60 seconds of the film. To be fair, you can upload videos on Instagram that are up to 90 seconds long, but those on TikTok can last up to 10 minutes.
You can add clips, pictures, and effects after choosing the specific area of the video that you wish to edit, just like you would when editing a standard Short. You can then post that video as a short after that.

The ability to link back to the original video in the Short is another wonderful aspect of this function. As a result, the viewer will have a direct link to the entire video that you spent the entire night editing. In theory, this will broaden the audience for and engagement with your primary channel videos.
In the upcoming weeks, you should be able to see this functionality because it is currently rolling out for Android and iOS. You should make sure your YouTube app is completely updated.
