I think this is still the best introduction to the process of creating and publishing video--KYou Tube Video Editor, that is. You can learn to shoot, upload, edit, mashup, edit some more and publish. It is the classic programmers 'fast prototype'. Make stuff, make it fast, make mistakes, make it right. You cannot beat the feeling of learning satisfaction with this tool. That makes it a positive addiction in my book--feel good learning.
"The YouTube Video editor lets you make quick edits to your uploaded YouTube videos. You can combine multiple clips, incorporate Creative Commons footage, enhance your clips with effects, and more."
