When it comes to video, sometimes less is more. The online video trimmer from Kapwing is the fastest way to cut a video to your desired duration.

Cut video into sections, split clips and rearrange, and get the perfect section of your video exported in just a few clicks.
How to Trim a Video For Free
Start by uploading your video file or pasting a link to the YouTube video. Then, use the sliders or the timeline to change the start and end time, make cuts, or shorten your video. You can split a layer into parts and remove the middle section from the video, or duplicate parts of the video to create a loop.
With the flexible Kapwing timeline, you can trim and cut clips whichever way is most intuitive for you. You can shorten the ends of the clip, or play to a desired section and cut the clip at that exact point. The Kapwing video trimmer supports all of these workflows, and much more.
Once you Export the trimmed video, Kapwing will process the trims and give you a saveable MP4 version of the video clip. Preview the final video by pressing play and make any other edits you like (add a watermark, text, or subtitels for example). Then, download the MP4 file directly or share the URL with friends to send the trimmed part to someone else. You can also “Edit” the trim if you need to make timing adjustments.
This free, online tool is also the best way to cut Youtube videos. Paste the YouTube URL to import the full video into Kapwing, then use the sliders to cut the video to the new timestamp. Kapwing supports MP4, MOV, MP3, FLV, AVI, WEBM, and website links. Upload any file to trim or crop it inline.
