Kaltura Video Editing Tools - User Guide

Kaltura Video Editing Tools allow users to edit quizzes, clip or trim media, chop and splice media and add advertisements to media from the Kaltura Management Console. They are a one stop shop for Timeline editing for Kaltura MediaSpace (KMS) and Kaltura Application Framework (KAF) applications. 

The current release of the Kaltura Video Editing Tools supports the following features:

  • Video Quiz Creator (KMS/KAF only)
  • Video Editor
    • Clipping a media entry
    • Trimming a media entry
    • Chop and Splice
  • Hotspots
  • Ads (KMC only)
  • Help

Kaltura Video Editing Tools provide a better user experience for all the Timeline features (those previously in the KMS/KAF Timeline Tab), and concentrate the Timeline editing features into a single folder.
