Creating Clips in the Web Player

To start creating a clip in the web player, hit Z or click the clip0009 button.

To add this segment of the recording to a Playlist without creating a clip, click the   button.

To change the start or end point of a clip, you can simply set new ones, or  drag the endpoints to a new location on the timeline using the mouse.
