Step 10: Click on the settings tab (gear icon).  Select “stop” from the behavior drop down menu.  Drag the grey bar forward to just before the beginning of the message.  Using the play and pause controls, pause the video before Noel starts to talk.  Normally a good place to pause is when he sets down his coffee mug, or reaches behind his back to turn on his microphone.  Once you are paused at a good starting place, click the “In” button.  Drag the grey bar to the end of the message.  Play the video and pause at the end of the closing prayer.  Click the “Out” button.  Close the media properties window.
