Advancing video to a specific start time


I need to advance a shared video multiple times to share several short portions.  Which video player will make it easy to see the time location?


I'm using QuickTime on a Mac and I have to "pull" the circle along the timeline and cannot see the time until I let go, requiring additional adjustments and wasting broadcast time.


I'd like to place the cursor on the timeline and see what time it is.

Hey, @BadgerBerling,


I occasionally have this issue as well (I’m primarily a Windows user, but do have a Mac Mini for testing), and haven’t found a good solution that lets me easily set the start point of the video.


What I do now is make a copy of the video and trim the front and back portions, leaving only the part of the video I really want to show.


Search the web for “video trim software for mac” and look for instructions on how to do it with software you already have (like QuickTime or iMovie) without buying additional software.
