Video clip show

My choir wants to make a short video featuring clips from our past concerts, to be shared over Zoom in an upcoming event.

All our videos are on YouTube, so I would have liked to just make a playlist with custom start/stop times. It looks like YouTube used to have this ability, but Google killed it after a little while because of course they did.

I found some online sites, listeononrepeat and diskyt, that said they did the same thing, but the former doesn't really work well -- there's a jarring skip when it loads each video -- and the latter seems to be defunct.

I have the source files, so failing a handy third party site or browser extension, is there any free software that painlessly cuts and merges videos of varying formats and resolutions? I could download the videos from YouTube to match resolutions, but the lowest common denominator is going to be 360p. Some nice-to-have features would be the ability to add fade in/fade out effects and superimpose text (the year, maybe the name of the concert).

    I've done some similar work using VSDC. For what you're talking about it's pretty painless to stitch different clips together into a chain, or cut small clips from larger ones.

    It's free, which is why I used it. It's got a lot of additional tools that can be overwhelming . But for putting clips in a row: just open a new project, drag and drop the clips in, then move them around on the timeline. It'll output a single video file that you can upload back to YouTube or share over Zoom.
