MediaSpace includes a basic video editor that allows you to trim and clip your videos.

NOTE: It is always a good idea to use the “Save a Copy” button when editing your videos so that you keep your original version as a backup. Any changes you make and save by clicking on the “Save” button are permanent and replace your original video.

Watch the video tutorial below for a quick overview of how to use the video editor
