Create a Clip from an Existing Video


Print Friendly

The Create Clip’ tool can be used to create a snippet from an existing video in Kaltura. This tool can be used to break a longer video into smaller parts, or to highlight a specific part of a video. Creating a clip will generate a new file; therefore, the original file is not affected. Captions will need to be ordered for clipped file(s) as captions will not copy over from the original video file.
