Convert YouTube videos quick and easy with the Motionbox video editor
Trusted by the best
Motionbox is the easiest and best tool to convert any public YouTube video to an mp4 or GIF. We designed it to be as easy as possible. Simply paste your YouTube link in our media modal shown in the demo above. Trim and wait a few seconds. You will then be able to resize the YouTube video for other social media platforms, this works great for repurposing content. You can take the wide 1920x1080 dimension from YouTube and convert it to a 1080x1080 dimension for the Instagram feed, or 1080x1920 for the iPhone. Then if you want, you can add music to the YouTube video, trim and cut, add text, subtitles, and more with our video editor.
Here is how you can use our YouTube video converter tool
Once you've created your account, simply go ahead and create a new video, there will be a plus icon (shown in the demo video above). Paste your YouTube video URL in the input box and it will automatically pull it in. You can trim the video and add it to our timeline. From here you have the option to edit, resize, etc.
This is completely optional but if you would like at the very least to repurpose the YouTube video for other platforms, you can resize the video to fit on an iPhone, or on Instagram/TikTok. You also have the ability to change the volume, speed it up, slow it down, add text, trim, and much more
When you are satisfied with the video, you can simply press the blue export button in the top right corner. You will be asked what format and quality you would like to export your video as. Choose between GIF or MP4, press export and voila you have a repurposed video meeting your creative demands.
To keep my audience engaged and excited for the weekly episodes I use Motionbox to promote the content. It's super easy to trim my podcast and add a visualizer.
Motionbox helped me create short clips of longer videos that were perfect for sharing as social media posts for my client's campaign. The built-in subtitle feature and progressbar worked great. I even used the subtitle feature to quickly generate copy from the longer videos so that I could also create blog posts! It saved me so much time. If I could use Motionbox to create top-notch content for my client who is a Super Bowl champion, then I'd say it's a superb tool!
I love using Motionbox for the automatic captions. When I make videos It's important that I have various sizes and they're accessible.
