Digital Media Guide Life Hacks YouTube Clips

YouTube clips can be used when you only want part of a longer video (such as a segment of an interview, speech, or explanation) and not the entire video.

Step 1
You must start by downloading a video from YouTube,  TeacherTube,  or other online video site.  You can use software or an add-on to your web browser to download online videos.   

Step 2
Open the downloaded YouTube video in a video editor

Step 3
Clip the segment of the video you want to incorporate into your project.  Delete the remaining video segments you won’t be using.  Save video clip.  

Step 4
You are now ready to add the video clip to your project.  When you add the clip, you may need to adjust the volume of the clip to match the volume of your own project.
