Creating a Copy from an Existing Video


Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Create a copy or snippet from an existing video in Kaltura to break a longer video into smaller parts, or to highlight a specific part of a video. Creating a copy will generate a new media file; therefore, the original media file is not affected.

NOTE: Captions will need to be ordered for copied or clipped file(s) as captions will not copy over from the original video file.
