Kaltura: Edit a Kaltura video

Tags Kaltura

Kaltura includes basic video editing functions that allow you to cut excess footage at the front or back of your video, or snip portions from the middle of your video. For any more complicated editing, you will need to download the video and edit it in a video editing software such as Adobe Premiere or Apple Final Cut.
