How to rotate a video in the new Youtube Studio?


There is however a workaround to rotate a video in the new Youtube Studio (even after the Classic Editor button was removed by Google).
It is a bit tricky and I don’t know how long it will work.

Here is the way to do it:

  • Open new Youtube Studio and select the video to edit.
  • Note down/copy the video-id of your video to rotate.
  • Create a url with your video-id as follows:
    youtube.com/enhance?v=video-id
  • Open that url in a new tab.
  • The old enhance edit window appears (which was part of the classic
    studio)
  • However, you will only see a Trim button.
  • Right click the trim button and select inspect
  • Select the line below the highlighted one in the inspect window.
    It should be something like:
<div class="enhance-effect" 
id="enhance-rotate-buttons" hidden="true">
  • In that line: highlight hidden="true" and delete it and hit return.
  • Now you will see the rotate left/right buttons again.
  • Rotate your video and click Save or Save as new video.

This may take some time.
Done 🙂
