What do you do when you have a really long video with you and you just want a port of it, perhaps to share it on Facebook.

Maybe you just want a minute of the best part of the video for your Instagram. Whatever your reasons maybe, here is how you can do it.

Use VLC Player to Cut a long video into smaller portions


Here is a quick way to cut any video using the VLC player. You probably have it installed on your PC, it’s one of the best video players available for both Mac and PC.

Though Windows offers a free tool like Windows Movie Maker for anyone to use, and it works pretty well also, especially for cutting and joining multiple clips, putting music etc.

But if you already have the VLC player installed and just want to cut videos every once in a while, you should know this simple trick.

Open the video in VLC  Player, then go to the starting frame of the video, then click on ‘Advanced Controls’ found under ‘View’ section, you get more control buttons in VLC player, the Red button is a Record button. You can click on it once to start recording and click again to stop the recording.

You can click on it once to start recording and click again to stop the recording. So what you have to do is, go to the exact frame to start recording, let it play the part you want to be the last frame and click on record once again to stop the recording.

That’s it, the saved video can be found in My Documents, Library, Videos, under the VLC folder, it is going to have a little longer name, you can rename it and use it for whatever purpose you want as long as you own the copyrights to it.

Now that you know how to cut a video from a longer video, you can also turn it into a GIF using this guide.
