Steps to Clip a YouTube Video
Clipping a YouTube video is a straightforward process that involves a few simple steps.
Sign in to Your YouTube account. Remember, it is mandatory to sign-in in before you create a clip. Open your desired YouTube video.
Click on the “Clip” Scissor icon below the video.
Move the box (drag slider) from starting point to the endpoint. A clip can be between 5 seconds to 60 seconds. Make sure you cover all desired clips of YouTube videos. Add the title (140 characters).
Once you covered the targeted part and add the title, click on “Share the Clip.”
It will direct you to all the sharing options. You can embed links, copy-paste URLs, or directly share on social media apps. Choose your option and share a YouTube clip with a targeted audience.
Clipping a YouTube video to share is a simple process that involves finding the desired video, using YouTube’s in-built editor, and then sharing the clipped video with others using the generated URL.
How do you cut part of a YouTube video that’s not yours?
You can use YouTube’s in-build video editor to trim your selected part or use a third-party tool. Remember, cutting or editing parts of a YouTube video that is not yours without proper authorization or permission from the original creator may result in copyright infringement.
Can I split a YouTube video into two parts?
As a user, you cannot directly split a YouTube video into two separate parts within YouTube itself. YouTube’s built-in video editor only allows you to trim a video to create a shorter version, but it does not have the capability to split a video into two separate parts.
