Reasons behind the release

Previously, editing video on a PC using Teachme Biz required the installation of an Editor Plugin or a Windows Desktop app.
However, installing dedicated apps requires a lot of effort in all aspects, such as installation, operation management, and app usage. Therefore, we have decided to develop functionality to edit video directly in the Web Browser version without installing any dedicated apps.

At the same time, to reduce the costs for capturing and editing the video, not only the existing video editing functions are added to the Web Browser version, but also the following enhancements will be added.

・Function to remove video sections from the middle of the video, allowing users to correct errors that occurred during video recording
・The time-consuming video processing will be performed in the background so that you can perform other tasks while waiting for the video to be processed
・Increasing the speed of video-generation related processing other than playing the video and reducing the waiting time for each operation

What's now?

New operations available in the Web browser version

・Adding markings to video such as arrows, etc. (Marking)
・Removing unnecessary parts such as the front, back, or middle of the video (Remove section)
・Removing sound from video (Remove sound)
・Extracting still images and video clips from video (Extract Image/Video)
