Let's Chop it with TubeChop!
Tubechop is a tool that is capable of taking a video from Youtube or any other website and cutting out the parts you want. This is a great way to delete video advertisements from the beginning or ending of a clip. You can also crop a video so that you are left with only the portion of the video that pertains to your lesson.
