Edit or delete a video

When you create a video, you can quickly review and post it or go into the video editor to make changes to individual clips. Learn how to download and change a video you already posted.

Edit a video before you post it

After you record or import any clips, you’re able to make basic edits to individual clips before you post them as a multiple-clip video.

Important: Currently, there isn’t a way for you to edit your video after you post it. You can make a new video as a comment to your first video or download a video you've already posted, edit and trim it, to then repost it.
