Edit Movies and Music with Windows Media Player

Editing multimedia files, especially videos, normally involves hard-to-comprehend programs, hours of learning and the headache of troubleshooting the final result. Now a great deal of video and audio editing can be done right in Windows Media Player, eliminating the useless hardships.

 
 

Turning Windows Media Player into a multimedia editor was made possible by the SolveigMM WMP Trimmer plugin, which delivers the editor capabilities to the player and allows performing the most common editing operations right within the player window.

Visually, the plugin appears as an additional toolbar at the bottom of the player window. Its “dashboard” – the timeline slider and just a few control buttons – make it easy enough to operate even for an average computer user. Simply load a movie or sound track to be “shaped up” to the player and turn on the plugin through the menu; then mark the boundaries of the fragment and apply the action of your choice. User can choose whether the selected fragment is to be trimmed or cut out of the “main” multimedia file. With this simple functionality, the program can be used for taking care of serious real-life jobs like assembling a complete movie or a sound track out of separate fragments, changing length of original file, cutting out commercials and other unwanted episodes or trimming particular scenes.

The trimmer plugin doesn’t take hours for recalculating the result – you can obtain the final movie or composition within a blink of an eye. Since the program doesn’t re-sample the video fragments it handles, the quality of the final result doesn’t degrade and remains just as high as the quality of the original file. Plus, since the program edits the whole track at once and doesn’t split the original into video/audio channels, the sound and the picture in the result file won’t be shifted against each other. Those who have suffered the syncing problems in the “advanced video editors” will surely appreciate this.

SolveigMM WMP Trimmer Plugin will work under any version of Windows with Windows Media Player version 9 or higher. It supports the majority of popular video formats, including AVI, WMV, ASF, WMA, MP3 and, with some restrictions, MPEG-2.
