How to Clip Video with Ease

By Lois Green, Sunday, February 28, 2016

I was asked by one of my friends the other day to clip a long YouTube video. She is a teacher and has the need to use videos in the classroom to illustrate concepts and give instructions. To save time, she doesn't want a full-length video to play but only specific section of the video.

Except for teachers, I believe most of us have the need to trim or clip videos. For example, cut off the unwanted part of the video get on Christmas, birthday party, wedding ceremony or company anniversary. In these cases, we can use FonePaw Video Converter Ultimate to have the job done.
