If you’re a Windows user, you might well be familiar with WMV (or Windows Media Video) files, which are the most common types of files used to store video clips on Microsoft’s operating system.
If you’ve got a WMV file on your computer and you’ve decided it needs a bit of a trim before you upload it elsewhere or post it on social media, use our tool to do it. Clideo’s WMV cutter is online, so you don’t need to install anything on your device. It’s also free for files up to 500 MB.
How to trim a WMV video online
At the top of this page you’ll find a blue ‘Choose file’ button to upload the WMV file you’d like to cut.
If it is stored in a cloud, select the downwards-facing arrow at the right of the button, which will bring down an additional menu allowing you to select a file from Dropbox or Google Drive.
Once your chosen file is selected, it will begin uploading automatically to Clideo’s servers and you’ll be taken to the WMV video cutter editor page.
It’s also worth noting that it’s not only WMV files that can be trimmed in the tool. You can upload a host of other video formats, such as MOV, MP4, AVI, etc.
To trim, use the green sliders under the preview panel to choose the beginning and end of your video.
Once your new length is selected, opt to either ‘Extract Selected’ or ‘Delete Selected’.
By selecting extract, you can add a fade-in and fade-out for a smoother transition effect - just check the boxes. If you choose to delete, you'll instead be given the option to crossfade the two remaining parts of the clip.
You can also change the file format if needed, for example, for sharing on social media you better choose MP4.
Once it’s ready to go, hit the ‘Cut’ button.
Download the trimmed WMV
Once processing is complete, you can playback your new clip to ensure it’s exactly what you wanted. Happy? Hit the green download button to save it to your PC.
If you'd prefer to save it directly to a Dropbox or Google Drive cloud account, you can do so, again, via the downwards-facing arrow.
If you need to make some more edits, simply tap the ‘Back to edit’ option and you’ll be directed back to the editor page without needing to start from scratch.
