Snip Snip It! – Quick You Tube edits

 I sometimes want to use parts of You Tube videos in my eLearning courses, but I just want students to watch a few minutes of the video and not the whole piece. I’ve also often seen people at conferences who want to illustrate a point with a short clip of a You Tube video but end up either having to show the whole of the video or play around trying to find the exact section of the video that is important to them.

 Snip Snip It! http://snipsnip.it/#  is a free service that allows you to make a simple edit of a You Tube video (top and tailing it), so that you can just show the very short section of the video that you need. You need to be in Google Chrome or Firefox in order to make an edit. You paste in the You Tube url of your video, press enter and then make the snip. The service will then give you a url of your snipped version of the video.

I snipped the 3D book video that I added to this blog a few weeks ago: http://snipsnip.it/ae4zyha4ezr/
