Our G+ is not enabled for students but is on for the staff...I also wonder if it depends upon which WeVideo you are using...if you are using the Chrome App WeVideo for Drive and publish from that editor to YouTube is it different than if you are using the full WeVideo editor found on their website which is really a different editor. I've heard from other schools who are having the same problem with the Chrome app WeVideo not being able to publish to YouTube.

John -

There are actually three "levels" of editing with WeVideo: once the account is activated using WeVideo for Drive, the advanced editor is available through their website (log in with Google credentials). I believe that offers "finer" editing, but not sure how fine.

Elizabeth: the account I used for testing was a brand new account (created a few days ago) and had never been used with YouTube. Is G+ enabled for your user's group or organization, but not for that account? I wonder if that could be it: G+ is not enabled at all for our student organizations.

Guys,

You have to enable through google chrome store app. in googlechrome. Then it works fine without g+.   The kids do this.

This program is better for general works, but not if you have to do a lot of cutting.   With movie maker, I can cut sound down to tenths of a second.  wevideo..... does not do that.   But I've just finished a few films, not to bad.

Elizabeth - Are you sure? I just used one of my test student accounts (G+ not enabled for our students) to post a sample video as "unlisted" and visited it with another account.

Yes, I've been promoting WeVideo with our teachers...and am working with a MS LA 7/8th grade class right now creating Digital Stories based on their written narratives. Here's a link to the lesson and ties to Common Core

But, I've just run into a problem with Google Plus. Since YouTube recently (last week or so) did a major over hall and tied the YouTube user account to Google Plus if a student account has not had Google Plus enabled and they don't already have a YouTube account they will not be able to upload videos to their YouTube Account. I'm trying to find out how they will resolve this issue with GAE accounts where many students are under 13 and cannot use Google+. I'm hoping they do the same as they did with Blogger where you have a choice to use the Google+ profile or Blogger Profile with the account.

Subject: A web-based video editor that WORKS!

When this conversation arose a year or so ago (or more) the options were limited and not quite viable...

I have been putting WeVideo for Google Drive (from the Chrome store) through it's paces for a couple of weeks and it is doing everything I want it to do: imports files directly from your Drive, converts every video type I have tried (a wide variety collected over the years), and kids can collaborate in real time (some "refresh" required.) I worked with 15+ groups using it simultaneously in a lab today with no bandwidth issues. Three levels of editing: Storyboard (Basic,) Timeline and (by going directly to their site) Advanced. The only real limitation I see is that you can only "Publish" 15 minutes of video per month. Awesome!

Getting away from local storage for video editing is huge.
