Ensemble Video 5.5 Version Summary

Follow

In version 5.5, several features have been introduced to improve the user experience and expand administrative control of the system. This version includes a new Video Chop feature and a new WordPress Plugin, our Lecture and Screen Capture options have been expanded, and we now support Google Authentication. Plus, we now have a new uploader in the Ensemble Video Web application, and we have addressed the 3rd Party Cookie issue in the Learning Management System (LMS) integrations. Finally, several other enhancements, improvements, and fixes have been added.

Video Chop Tool

Using the new Chop feature and along with the Trim feature, Ensemble Video users can easily edit out un-needed or un-wanted portions of a video. A chop is when you remove a section of a video. A user can cut the media in two places and "chop out" the middle section and join the other segments of the video back together. In addition to removing un-wanted portions of a video, if a user has a long video, they might want to chop (or trim) it into smaller video clips.  Learn how to Chop a Video.
