Edit a Presentation's Content

My Media features a web-based editor that allows you to remove unwanted parts of your presentation. You can also change the starting point of the presentation, the point at which the presentation ends, and you can also cut pieces out of the middle.

The web-based editor in My Media does not support advanced editing functions like adding additional video, splicing videos together, or modifying the volume of the audio.

Accessing the Editor

To begin, access the list of presentations on your My Media dashboard, and select the name of the presentation you wish to edit. A summary of the presentation will appear.

  1. Select the Edit Video link in the right column of the presentation summary.

The My Media Editor will load in a separate tab or window within your web browser.

Performing basic edits

Make more precise edits by zooming into the project timeline using the zoom tools [spyglass icons] in the bottom-left corner.

Divide one long presentation into a series of shorter presentations

  1. Open the original presentation in the Editor, then place the timeline cursor to the new starting (or ending point).
  2. Drag the triangular Start (or End) indicators until they snap to the timeline cursor [1].
  3. Optionally, adjust the fade-in/fade-out position using the fade handles [3].
  4. From the toolbar at the top of the editor, select Save Video > Save to New.
  5. Type a name for the new, shorter presentation and select Save Video.

Repeat steps 2-6 for each short segment you wish to create from the longer original presentation.

Crop the beginning and end of a presentation

  1. In the Editor, place the timeline cursor to the new starting (or ending) point.
  2. Drag the triangular Start (or End) indicators until they snap to the timeline cursor [1].
  3. Optionally, adjust the fade-in/fade-out position using the fade handles [3].
  4. Save your changes to the presentation.

Cut out part of a presentation

  1. In the Editor, use your mouse to click and drag to select the part of the presentation you want to remove.
  2. Select Cut Time.
  3. You can fine-tune the position of the cuts by dragging the triangular indicators [2].
  4. Optionally, adjust the fade handles [3].
  5. Save your changes to the presentation.

Saving edits

Once you are satisfied with the edits you have made, you should save the changes using the Save Video drop-down menu in the toolbar located at the top of the editor. There are several options available for saving your edits:

  • Save to New (Recommended): Creates a new presentation without destroying the original presentation in case you find yourself in need of any previously cut content. The new presentation will be saved in the same folder/channel as the original file.
  • Save to Current: Applies the changes to the original (source) presentation. This option is not recommended as you will not retain the original content.
  • Save to Existing (Not Recommended): Allows you to overwrite a different, existing presentation with your edits. This option will permanently remove any pre-existing content from the destination presentation.

Once you save your edits, you can optionally monitor the progress of your save using the Save Jobs option in the top-right corner of the editor. Your edits will be reflected once the server has finished processing the save job.
