Download the Recording Editor

You can't edit NBR (Network-Based Recording) files; however, hosts can truncate the start and end times of the recording and can also control which panels are displayed. You can export NBR files to WMV, MP4, or Flash format and then edit them with a third-party editor such as Windows Movie Maker.
