How to blur faces in YouTube videos

YouTube has an in-built editing tool which lets you quickly and easily blur faces in your videos. This is really useful if you have a video which includes students or colleagues who have not given permission for their image to be put online. Or for those times when a stranger is behaving oddly in the background of your video! You can choose to automatically blur all faces, or just blur selected faces/sections of the video.
