How to crop video of recorded Teams meeting to remove attendees?

New Contributor

I want to share videos of recorded Teams meetings for training purposes, but I need to remove the attendees.  Can anyone tell me an easy way to crop this information out of the videos without expensive editing software?

Hi, you cannot crop a Teams / Stream video natively I'm afraid.  You can only trim it as per -


I was able to crop my recorded Teams meeting presentations using Adobe Premier Pro 2020.  I think there are some free or low-cost video editing programs that will also allow cropping.  I will post about it I find one that works well.


Someone told me that there is a setting in Teams that prevents recording the attendees.  That would be a good solution, and I will look for that.  If not, it would a good feature to add, or add cropping to the current editing tools in Stream.
