I'm working on a project which contains videos that I need to skip over the intro and outro of when the user plays them in a slide. Due to work/security requirements, the original video file asset is required to have these intro/outro statements to be present, so I can't just edit them out. 

I have advanced actions set so the video is hidden on the slide of information, you then click a Play button that I have made that shows the video and an X button to hide it again. I've been trying to look through some timing options but they all seem to apply to the slide's timing rather than the video's timing.
Is there a way to set start/end times within the video?

It will be tricky, depending on the length of the videos, and you need to be exclude the possibility to pause (for the skipping of the last part).

Use the On Enter event to navigate immediately to the frame where you want to start the video. You can calculate that frame from the time and the frames per second which are stored in the system variable cpInfoFPS.

For the end part to skip, you could try using the Delay Next actions command in the same advanced action, and use the real play time to define the waiting time. You can then hide the video and jump to the next slide or...
