Traditional video editing apps tend to be pretty specific when it comes to which video formats they can edit. Some, for example, are not compatible with MKV videos. Others don’t play well with AVI or WMV files. That doesn’t mean that there aren’t alternatives, however. 

You can cut any video format online with the Flixier video cutter, for example. Not only does this tool run entirely in your web browser, it’s also compatible with all of the popular video, image and audio formats. You can upload videos in any format and it will process it in seconds, allowing you to cut it or split the video into parts before rendering it and saving it back to your computer as an MP4. In fact, Flixier converts all the videos you upload to MP4 automatically, in order to ensure compatibility and allow you to edit and share your videos easily.

In fact, getting the job done quickly and easily is one of Flixier’s main advantages. Let’s take a look at how easy it is to cut a video using this app in order to give you an idea of just how convenient it is: 

Step 1: Upload your video 

Go to Flixier’s website, click the blue Get Started button to start the app in your web browser and then drag your video over to the window in order to upload it. There are other options to import media as well, such as bringing it over from cloud storage platforms like Dropbox or Google Drive, or just copying and pasting a YouTube link if you want to cut YouTube videos.

After the video is uploaded to Flixier, it will show up in your library tab. All you have to do now is drag it down to the timeline at the bottom of the screen. You can drag the playhead around the timeline and click the Cut button or press S on your keyboard to cut your video wherever you want.
