Problem: editing a video now requires you to download the video, find a video editor that supports ogg/webm and upload them again. YouTube videos often have an outro that is distracting when there aren't other YouTube videos linked. Sometimes a video is an assembly of segments, like the short segments in RN7 news (File:RN7 Kort 7 November 2017.webm). Sometimes a part of a video's copyright status is in doubt, like c:File:Zondag met Lubach houdt de wereld voor de gek.webm, which was published under a free license by VARA but features a trailer produced by VPRO.
Who would benefit: Wikimedia contributors that work with
Proposed solution: A tool like CropTool that lets you edit a file without having to leave the project.
More comments:would be extra great if relevant subtitle files would also be trimmed and re-upload.
We don't even have a decent video player yet, let alone an editor... P.S. anyone suggesting spending time on the player. ? I've reached my quotum for the survey. —TheDJ (talk • contribs) 10:44, 13 November 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I'm not proposing an fully fledged video editor, I'm proposing a tool that lets you shorten a video by trimming off the beginning or end. Vera (talk) 16:25, 13 November 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]
