2. Add the video from the Library to the timeline in the bottom part of the window by right-clicking the video's thumbnail in the Media Library and picking the "Add file to timeline" option. Another way is to drag and drop the file to the timeline (the timeline area is framed with yellow borders in order not to be missed).
