To add a video, create a content page, select Media content block, and choose one of the available layouts (e.g., Single video). You can upload videos from your PC, add from Library, embed from Youtube or Vimeo, or record a video directly in Easygenerator.

Also, you can use the Ctrl+C/Ctrl+V option as well as drag and drop the video file to the video content block:

Note: you can change the video only if it is already processed.

You can change the video block layout at any step of creating the content.

Trim the video

You can trim videos that are hosted on the Easygenerator platform (the videos that are added to your video library - the ones you uploaded directly to your library, to a course, or which you recorded in Easygenerator directly).

To trim the video, click the video block, and select the trim option. Set the start and end time of the part of the video you would like to keep so the beginning and/or ending will be cut off. You can trim up to the milliseconds level and the time format followed while trimming is MM:SS.MS (i.e: minutes, seconds, and milliseconds)

NOTE: The trimmed video will overwrite the original video and will be saved in the video library.

Recommended browsers: Chrome or Edge, the latest version.

In the editing window, you can also change the title of the video.

Adding subtitles to a video

You can also add subtitles to your videos by uploading them in VTT or STR format in our tool. You can find the step-by-step guide here.
