Delete duplicate videos

I have some videos in albums and had set up an additional album only for videos. I want to remove videos that are both in the video album and also in other individual albums.  However, when I try to delete a duplicate video from the video-only album it also removes the same video from its other location in an individual album.  Is there any way to clean up the video album and not lose the same video from any other album?

Deleting the source video will remove it from everywhere – think of taking an album out of a jukebox, none of those songs can play on any of the playlists now. 

Anyway, while viewing the album, if you select an image then click the 3dot menu and choose “Remove from album” that should do the trick.

Let me know if that helps.
