Hello Mi Fans
Here's an introduction to the MIUI 9 Gallery Video Editor! Introduced back in MIUI 8, Video Editor feature brings the basic video editing capabilities to your phone's gallery app, so that you won't need to use a 3rd party app for this purpose.  I know you're all eager to know more about this amazing tool, so without further ado...let's get started!

How to enter into the Gallery Video Editor in MIUI 9?

AdvancedIt'll take you to Play Store/Mi Apps to download a new app
called Kinemaster Pro for more advanced video editing options
Now let's start editing a video by looking into each option in detail.


Trim is the very first option which automatically opens when we start Gallery Video Editor. With the help of Trim option, you can cut or remove parts of your video file. After you finish making your cuts, click on the tick button at bottom right corner and the video will be trimmed in no time! This option is very helpful when you want to trim your video to reduce its size or duration, to make it as your status in social apps like WhatsApp, Instagram, Facebook, etc. or to upload it as an attachment to your E-Mails.


Filter option is one of the coolest options in Gallery Video Editor. It lets you add some nice overlay effects and colour filters to your video.
Currently, there are 13 filters available for us to use. 3 of them are pre-made effects, which are packed with graphical and sound effects, They are,
  • Family
  • Vintage -
  • Rock

Colour filters include,
  • Cold
  • Sepia
  • Blue
  • Rouge
  • B&W
  • Sunny
  • Green
  • Purple
  • Moon
  • Rainy
More amazing filters may get added in future! After you finish adding filters to your video, tap on the tick button at right bottom corner to apply.

Adding custom text to videos is more easier than ever with Text option. Just type your desired text and select a font style will do the job. There are 3 different font styles available with this option. You can also have the freedom to make your text appear before the video as a Title or after as a Credit. Click on the tick button at bottom right corner when you're ready to apply it to the video.

Now comes the audio part. You can choose between 6 pre-installed audio effects or choose audio files from your own phone memory.
Pre-installed audio effects include,
  • Memory
  • Techno
  • Romantic
  • Ballad
  • Rock
  • Ukulele
Choose Select, the last option to add your own music file from your phone. After you finish, tap on the tick button to apply.

If the options in Gallery Video Editor doesn't meet your needs, then you can try this out. It'll direct you to the download page of a more advanced video editor app called "Kinemaster Pro for Android", which offers you more advanced and professional options. If you want to add some extra spice to your videos, then KineMaster Pro is the right choice!

Before concluding, here's how to save your finished video file
  • Tap on Done. A popup will emerge from the bottom of the screen with a status "encoding video". Don't worry, it is now saving your video and it may take some time according to the size and duration of the video file. After successful encoding, you can see the newly edited video along with other videos in Gallery. Congratulations, you're now officially a Pro Video Editor, thanks to this amazing MIUI 9 Gallery Video Editor!
