Use the playback controls above the Timeline to Play/Pause, Fast Forward and Rewind. Each click of Fast Forward or Rewind will playback more quickly, similar to a DVD player. (ie 2x, 4, 8x, 16x etc) You can also click and drag the yellow slider bar left or right to quickly “scrub” through video.
You can zoom into the timeline to show better detail using the small green zoom in/zoom out buttons on the far left and right. You can see the timeline scale has changed to 1 minute increments (10:19, 10:20, 10:21, etc)

Step 2: Adjust the selected video etither by dragging the Start/Stop export bars to the desired times or by clicking on the timeline and then clicking the “Mark Start” and “Mark Stop” buttons.
Step 3: Once you have the desired section of video, click the Export Video button.

Video exporting will begin immediately, and the file will be saved to your computer.
