Editing in Wistia

Trim your videos directly in your Wistia account.

We’re now offering the experience of editing to customers on our Pro, Advanced, and Premium plans! You can access the editor by selecting “Edit” in the left hand side menu of the All Content page, or directly from a video’s page in your account.

You’ll then be prompted to select the video you’d like to edit.

From here, you can play through your video and trim out content.

We don’t currently offer the ability to edit Channel episodes, but stay tuned!

Splitting and Deleting Content

Splitting a video allows you to break up your video into different sections, so that you can reach any part of the timeline to remove.

To split your video, drag the playhead to your desired timestamp and then click “Split.” From here, you can split your video up into as many sections as you’d like. You can delete individual sections by selecting the appropriate one and clicking “Delete.” Or, you can click and drag either end of a section to trim it.

Changed your mind or made a mistake? Click “Undo” until you’ve reached your desired point. If you go back too far, that’s okay! Click “Redo.”

Saving Your Edits

Once you’ve finished making your edits, you can save them as a brand new video!

Click on the “Export Video” button on the top right of the Editor page. From here, you can create a new project to export your edited video to, or select from your current list of projects. Then, click “Save as copy” to complete the export.

You’ll notice that the title of the new version of your video has details about when you last edited it, but you can also change the title if you’d like.

And that’s it! You’ve just edited a video in Wistia.
