Editing your recording

Kaltura offers basic editing functions following recording which is accessible via My Media once a recording has been uploaded.

Note: If you had recorded with two outputs and would like to edit it, you cannot edit only one output. For example, the edits you make in the second minute of the first output will also affect the second output.
