How do you now Trim a recorded zoom video? I had no problem Editing my recorded videos before they changed to "Trim" recordings, and now cannot Trim and can find no instructions. I need to edit/trim a little off the front and end of my Church Sermons to send out to Church Members.

Hi rfrazier60,

 

For the Zoom recording saved online, you have to open the video to preview it. At that point, you will find a pair of scissors located in the lower right-hand corner of the video which opens the Trim function. https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/115003001383-Trimming-cloud-recordings

I have just read the Zoom support link about trimming. 

How to trim the beginning and end of a Zoom cloud recording

  1. Sign in to the Zoom web portal.
  2. In the navigation menu, click Recordings.
  3. Click the meeting topic for the session that you want to trim, then click the thumbnail of the video.
  4. Click 
     

     

     Trim.
  5. Use the blue sliders to specify the start time and the end time for the trimmed recording. This means that the blue highlighted area will be the trimmed recording.
    Note: To trim by the second, drag one of the sliders, then click the back arrow icon 
     

     

     or forward arrow icon 
     

     

      I used to be able set a playback range using the sliders referenced in step 5.  Since September 2022 the edit feature changed and now I do not have the same sliders and I can't set a playback range at all.  Is my account missing something? Zoom needs to update the support tutorials as they do not correspond to the trim feature which changed on my account  and  I am unable to successfully set a playback range.  Please can someone help as I can't send my recordings out to my clients anymore.

Hi @SH28,

 The image below is how the trim feature should appear. By clicking the two vertical lines at either end you can trim from the beginning or the end of the video. If you do not see the blue bar or the two vertical lines I would suggest you try another web browser as it may be something related to your current browser.
