Video files that you need to share with others via email or on social media platforms are usually limited in file size, and the most popular messaging service WhatsApp does it within the app to offer you to trim a video before you send it.
There are also standalone video trimmers that you can use with more editing features on mobile devices. VidTrim is the one I use often on my Android mobile with its impressive features, simple and intuitive user interface.
The app applies open-source FFmpeg and MLT libraries and offers useful editing functions including trimming or merging videos, saving video as mp3, grabbing a picture, rotating and adding special effects.
When opening up, the app lists all your recent video files on your device, with an option for you to re-sort the list by filename, size or duration.
Selecting a video from the list lets you see the details of the video, including its duration, picture size, rotation, frame rate, codec and bitrate, as well as the location of the file. From here, all editing features are clearly presented with action buttons for the video.
Tap the Trim button and you can cut the video or audio right away by adjusting the start and end points of the slider. That’s pretty fast and efficient to serve the key function of the app.
Tap the Grab Frame button and you can save an image from a video by pausing it at a select frame and pressing the Save button.
Even though supported with ads, the free version of this app has sufficient functions with no limitation and serves most needs of average users. The process is fast and easy especially when no transcoding is needed from the source of the video.
Other advanced features involving transcoding, like resizing or compressing videos, adding soundtracks or special video effects, will get you a result video with a watermark, which can be removed in the paid-for Pro version.
