You can trim a non public video that you make public at the same time that you are naming your video file. NOTE: The trim feature currently requires you have Flash enabled in your browser to use the trim interface. The Embed Code v5 and Go Player v5 do not require Flash in HTML5 supported browsers, it is just required in the page in the Sunday Streams Manager that has the trimming tool.
Whether you are looking to keep only the sermon for video archives to make it easier for viewers to watch or save storage space, trim unwanted video from the beginning or end of your service, or change the video's thumbnail image the ability to trim your video when making it public can help you. The thumbnail image is presently selected from about 2 seconds into the start of the video file so by trimming the beginning to a second or two before the image that you want will change the thumbnail to the image you want.
In the Manage Videos > Non Public select the video that you want to make public and trim and make it public.
Click either of the trim video buttons on the page that opens up to let you name your video file.
To trim the video move the green and red sliders to set the start and end of the video segment that you want to save. When you move a slider it will show where the in the video that the slider is. The - and + buttons let you fine tune where you start and stop the video and the play start and play end buttons will show you the first or last five seconds of where the video will trim. To start the trim and make the video public click the Continue button then give the video a name and click the Make Archive Public button.
If you do not check the Keep Non Public During Processing checkbox then the whole video will be viewable on your embed code or Go Player during the time that the video is processing and after the video is done processing it will show just the trimmed video.
If you do check the Keep Non During Processing checkbox then the video will not be viewable until the file is done processing and the trimmed video is available publicly.

Presently this feature is only available for nonpublic video that was a file created from your stream and isn't available yet for videos that are already public or have been uploaded.
