I've got several video clips uploaded to YouTube that I'd like to use the video editor to splice together. Only a subset of my uploaded clips are available in the clips panel in the editor. Any idea how to get the other ones into the editor?

The video editor is no longer available to use on YouTube, making both question and answer irrelevant. Original answer follows

There are several reasons why videos may not show up:

  • The video is too long (limit currently is at 1 hour, YouTube is working on extending that though)
  • The video contains copyrighted content by a third party
  • The video has not finished processing yet
  • The video has been deleted
