Videos: Trim Video Clips in PowerPoint

When you insert video clips in your presentations, you may find that the video clip inserted may be too long. Or maybe you just need to show part of the video clip, rather than wasting your audience’s time showing them the entire clip. Yes, you can use the Player Controls bar to scrub and play the clip from exactly where you want it to begin. However, scrubbing a clip in front of an audience can appear unprofessional. Another way is to trim the video clip outside PowerPoint in a dedicated video program. You have one more option, and that is to use the Trim Video option within PowerPoint to get the results.
