How to cut a video online with HTML5 Video Editor?

Using the HTML5 Video Editor you can:

  • cut video file online;
  • trim video online — you can delete unnecessary fragments with just a few clicks;
  • split video online;
  • edit video and audio stream.

However, you can not crop a video online (for example, to remove black borders). The editor does not support this function.

How to use

1. To cut a video online, you should get access to the SolveigMM software.

2. Next you run the application to trim video/to cut video/to do any editing by going to the web browser.

3. Then drag the media file or several files you want to edit from the video folder to the file area in the Media section.

Drag the media file or several files you want to edit

4. When the file/files are loaded, place it/them on the timeline to start editing. If you are uploading several video files, you should pay attention to their order — they must be placed one after another in the right order to perform the intended actions (for example, add video transitions).

5. Use a time marker (there is only one in the online editor) to set video intervals. It can be used to split the original file placed on the timeline into parts, using the button with scissors to confirm the action of cutting video. Further, the resulting parts can either be deleted, or saved, or you can add transitions between them.
