Including a preview, and a choice of start and stop. This of course is a browser plugin.

Then once done on WeVideo or equivalent, you open the file, but it uploads only the relevant sections in full quality.

       You mean like they do in Google Street View? (except more controllable)

       This almost already exists. It is my understanding that the "jpeg" image format starts with a low-res image, and all the extra data added to the image file is associated with enhancing the resolution of image. So, all we would need is the ability to stop transmitting the file at any point after the initial low-res image has been sent, such that the recipient can properly close the truncated/received file, and still use it.

       The ad that comes before the vid you want to watch is sometimes so high res the system freezes a bit. It would be good to drop both a bit particularly when browsing.
