By Olga Krovyakova - March, 29 2019
When we would like to share some funny, interesting video clips with our friends via YouTube, Facebook and other social networks, sometimes there is the need to edit the video before uploading. Most times we would like to have only some certain fragments or part of video or audio content of the clip or movie.
To edit the file before the sharing it via YouTube or Facebook you can use, for example, lossless and fast SolveigMM Video Splitter, that edits files of all popular formats, e.g. MP4, FLV, MOV, AVCHD, MPEG-2, MKV, MPEG-1, AVI, WMV, MP3, WMA, and helps to make such clips in the couple of minutes.
Just follow these simple steps to take a chance to excite your friends with the new clip.
Assume, we would like to delete the fragments several parts of the fragment and save two fragments from the file to the single video clip.
1. Download and install Video Splitter
2. Launch the program from its icon or from the Start -> All programs -> Solveig Multimedia -> SolveigMM Video Splitter 5 Home Edition
