Is it possible to embed a video in Beamer and make it AutoPlay but say just up to the first 10 seconds?

I have an mp4 movie that I am embedding by media9 package, but reading the DOCs of this latter I could not find any reference to this possibility.


     \setbeamertemplate{navigation symbols}{}

    Trivially, you could crop the original file with an editor or a command line tool, e.g., askubuntu.com/a/821284/540457 for Ubuntu.

    Yes, true. But this is what I would like to avoid. I found an option in \movie from package multimedia inside beamer such as start and duration. This requires to convert my movie to AVI a priori (not a big deal by ffmpeg)... the point is that for some reasons, these options do not work...
