Trim a Recorded Web Video

  • Updated

With Studio, you can section a web video and create an entirely new video out of it. For example, if your web video has content in the beginning and/or end you want to remove, or you want to highlight a speaker and not the entire event, you can trim your web video from the Web Videos tab to create a new video with the content you want. 

You can also use this feature to make an older web video the active and next replay content on its associated web channel. Active content is what your viewers see when looking at the embed player. The next replay tag means that web video will be used for the next scheduled replay event using the associated web channel. To learn more about replay events, see Schedule a Replay Event.

Trim A Web Video

  1. Navigate to Library > Web Videos.
  2. Hover over the video you want to trim and click the options icon image2.png > Trim Video. image1.png
  3. Give the new video a name.
  4. If you haven’t already, create cues to section the video how you want. You can do that in the View Details option > Cues tab for each video. In the video find where you want to mark, click Add Cue, name your cue, and then click the green checkmark to add it.  To learn more about adding and managing cues, see Add Cues to a Video
  5. Select the start and stop cues to section the video. The new video will be the section between the cues. You cannot cut out or stitch together sections in Studio.  
  6. If you want the trimmed video to be the active content on the web channel, check Set Trimmed Web Video As Active. After trimming, when you return to the Web Videos tab, your new video will have the “active” tag next to it and will be the current content viewers will see from the associated web channel. image3.png
  7. Click Create Video. image4.png
  8. When the video successfully processes, a green checkmark will appear and you can either close the modal or immediately see the video by clicking View Trimmed Video. image8.png
  9. The trimmed video will appear as the most recent video in the Web Videos tab once processed. image5.png

The trimmed video will inherit the same expiration date as the original web video. To save video content longer, we recommend subscribing to our Content Library which allows you to save content indefinitely and broadcast it anywhere at any time you’d like. To learn more about Content Library, see Resi’s Content Library.


Using Trim to Change Active Content and Next Replay

You can also use the trim feature to set an older web video to be the active content and/or used for the next replay event on a web channel. Studio doesn’t require you to use cues to trim an event, so you could create a new video using the entire older video’s content. To learn more about replay events, see Scheduling a Replay Event.

  1. Navigate to Library > Web Videos.
  2. Hover over the video you want to trim and click the options icon image2.png > Trim Video
  3. Give the new video a name.
  4. Leave the start cue as Start of Event and end cue as End of Event.
  5. To make it the active content in the web channel, select Set Trimmed Web Video as Active.  image3.png
  6. The video will now be both the active content on the web channel and used for the next replay event. image10.png

Using Trim to Change Next Replay Content Only

You can also set aside content for the next replay event without overriding the current active content on the web channel. However, once the content replays it will become the active content.

  1. Navigate to Library > Web Videos.
  2. Hover over the video you want to trim and click the options icon image2.png > Trim Video
  3. Give the new video a name.
  4. Leave the start cue as Start of Event and end cue as End of Event.
  5. Do not select Set Trimmed Web Video as Active. image9.png
  6. Click Create Video.
  7. The video will now only be used for the next replay event and have no active tag. This video will be used for the next scheduled replay event from the associated web channel but won’t be the active content on that channel until it broadcasts.  image7.png
