Editing Media

Once the media is on your My Media page, you can edit the media properties and the media itself.  Media properties are initially configured when you first upload or create the media but can be modified using the edit options. For example, you can modify the media title, description, tags, chapter markers, and collaborators. Using the Video Editor, you can also edit the media itself, including trimming the beginning and end of the media or removing a segment from within the media.
