How to Create Videos: Cool New Windows Solution for Making YouTube Videos and Slideshows: EZVid

This is a guest post from Saif Ullah whose team created the new Windows Video Maker EZVid. I asked Saif to share with my readers what it can do for us.

Making Videos for YouTube…

…on a Windows machine can be a pain.

Using Windows Movie Maker is an option, but to get this to work on Windows 7 or Vista involves downloading the entire “Live” package, which contains a ton of bloatware, and Microsoft still has not enabled proper direct HD YouTube upload in Movie Maker. Worst of all: 

Windows Movie Maker crashes constantly.

Free Video Making Software Solutions

In terms of free solutions, there is web-based video creation software like Animoto, but the real problem is this:

Animoto is not free if you want to make more than a 30 second video.

In fact, if you want to make more than a 30 second video, you have to sign up for a SUBSCRIPTION with a credit card – a total ripoff – I mean, I pay a subscription for Internet access or for a phone bill, but to make slideshows? Huh?  This is the kind of thing that only makes sense to idiot venture capitalists 😉

So. You can also use the YouTube video editor – which is built into your YouTube account. Try it – but you’ll quickly find the fatal flaw –

In YouTube Video Editor you cannot add pictures –
only video – and the video has to be already
uploaded to your YouTube account. Crazy!

So we recently created EZVID, which is a super cool video creation solution for Windows. It’s an extremely elegant and dare-i-say beautiful piece of software, which provides only the necessary elements to make a great video.

Ezvid is a free video maker for YouTube
which allows you to make videos easily.

Better Video Editing Software

How EXVid exceeds the capabilities of other free video makers:

  • FORMATS: imports tons of different video – many more than Movie Maker – AVI, WMV, MKV, FLV, MOV and others…..
  • STILL PHOTOS: import still pictures in all kinds of formats – PNG, TIF, BMG, JPG – you name it.
  • IMPORT PROCESS: very well designed, providing a percentage readout so you know how long you have to wait for the video to be imported.
  • TIMELINE functionality is extremely simple… and the thumbnails are pictorial, so you can easily see what videos and images you are assembling and editing.
  • TEXT SLIDE FUNCTION: Comes with some cool fonts, and allows you to put in text before and after other bits of media so you can narrate what you’re sharing with your viewers.
  • COPYRIGHT FREE MUSIC: EZVid includes a bunch of free music from 009 Sound System and Aalborg Soundtracks

EZVid music is totally legal for YouTube – Avoid copyright infringement claims
This is really important to ensure your YouTube account
does not get disabled or deleted!

EZVid also makes uploading your video to YouTube a snap. Check out the video (above) at about 2:40 and you’ll see you do it all from within EZVid:

  1. Just fill in your title, description and keywords and select a category
  2. Click upload
  3. Log into your YouTube account.
  4. Watch the progress bar as EZVid saves, renders, and uploads your video to YouTube.
  5. When complete, a link appears to watch your new video on YouTube.

Check it out now at  — also, I should mention, that it’s 100% totally free forever! No subscriptions, no registrations, nothing….. so you have here an excellent alternative to paid software like One True Media, Animoto, Sony Vegas, Adobe Premiere, Final Cut Pro, etc. etc.

The following two tabs change content below.


  1. I will surely try Ezvid as it looks like a great toos to create videos and windows movie maker really crashes and is outdated too.

  2. Michael says:

    This is a great new software, way better than some of the other programs, and Youtube video editor. I will share this with my video editing guys and have them start using it! Thanks for this video post.

  3. Blake Cullen says:

    i’m a pretty fan of Ezvid now as indeed it saves me more time to create videos and i love how it can upload to YouTube so easily. It is indeed a pretty decent solution for YouTube videos and overall, I would highly recommend Ezvid to you all users who are into creating video/slideshow for YouTube. I’ve experienced enough with Ezvid making me switch from my old movie maker to this one right now. Great job, Ezvid developers for creating this slick tool.

  4. But they don’t support AVCHD/mts format which is most popular in latest HD cameras.

  26. One thing I’ve started doing lately is creating screencast videos to answer common questions on HireFlo. The screencast does a much better job of answering the question than an email, plus I can host the screencast on youtube and it becomes yet another channel that new users can find me through. There are a lot of searches happening on youtube. You can see samples of what we’re doing here:

    • Hi Rudy,

      yes you are right. Most of the people likes to watch videos to get better view of questions. It is also a good method that you post videos about common questions.



  27. No doubt .there is really a cool topics for making an amazing video..the steps you performing here in your article is looking so easy.but after using if i got some problem i ll let you know…..anyways nice post……..

    • Hi Sonia,

      You are always welcome. yes you are right that windows movie maker limits thee users in making good video. It has not much features and formats as Ezvid have.



  29. This is a very nifty video editing tool. A lot of people are still anxious about using video marketing not knowing for certain that it is a potent marketing tool specially considering the fact that most people prefer watching videos over reading.

    • Hi Rye,

      yes you are right. Video marketing is now becoming a part of SEO. You can make videos to do video marketing and video uploading on youtube.
      Most of the people does not have much time that they read out a long length article so that is why they prefer watching videos over reading.



  30. Thank you saif to share this nice tools with us.i will definately use this.make a 20 sec video with HD is really good.

    • Hi John,

      Your welcome buddy, I would like to tell you that there is no limit in video making with this software. You can make the videos as many as you want and also no limit on length. :)



  31. I think free video editor like Camtasia Studio is good option to consider it supports almost all the functions mentioned above.

  32. Literally anything that gets me away from Windows Movie Maker will be an upgrade. I have a macbook with good editing capability, but I hate working on my small laptop screen. So until now it has been Movie Maker, which is just no good, or editing on a small screen. Thank you for finally offering up a better solution. I will download ezvid and give it a go.

  33. Hi Saif, this looks like a pretty cool tool that I will use asap. One question – does it include any type of transitions? The transitions in Animoto are one of my favorite features, I just wish I had more control over them. Thanks for sharing this tool and I look forward to checking it out.

    • Hi Ileane,

      Yes it is a pretty cool tool without any doubt. Actually it is Animoto Alternative. All the features which are in Animoto are present in it. I do not know why Animoto is charging $299 for just a simple video making software ??

      In this Regard, Ezvid is totally free of cost and it includes all types of transitions. I hope you will find it useful.
