Edit Zoom Recordings

If you would like to edit the playback range of a video saved to the cloud, open the recording either in the Zoom Canvas integration or on https://zoom.usu.edu. Once the video is open in your browser, select the scissors icon in the bottom, right-hand corner.

An important notice may pop up saying that editing the playback range will not affect the original recording. You can still access the full video in your account, but other viewers will only see the portion you select.

If you enable downloads, viewers will have access to the full-length recording and all relevant files.

Once you have selected the scissors, drag the arrows along the video timeline at the bottom to choose the playback range.
