Windows movie maker?
It's not great, but it should be on your pc or is free. I don't know about mac users though.

Windows Movie Maker is a very basic, but simple to learn product. Give it a go :)

thanks. :)

it may take a while for me to get the gist of that one, but in case i don't like it, do you know of a free download?

I can't think of any more straight forward to use than WMM, although Zweistein (http://www.thugsatbay.com/tab/?q=zweistein) is a free video editor, but I found that pretty complicated to use.

That was fast.
You're welcome.

I don't like to download from that site though.

I recommend you to use Camtasia Studio, I love it, much better and easier than Windows Movie Maker and it has lots of cool stuff to add to your videos ;)

kay.. I'm pretty sure youtube will take a wmv video made with Windows Movie Maker. No need to convert before hand.

But if you insist, get AviDemux (http://fixounet.free.fr/avidemux/) and convert to FLV prior to upload (this is the format that youtube will convert to, and which you will be playing in their player). regardless of what format you upload in though, youtube will run it through their own converter and you will inevitably end up with a much lower resolution than you started out with.

Windows Movie Maker, I've been usuing it for months now and it never let me down. Very basic and friendly.

I've recently purchased Sony Vegas 7.0, it's pricey but really excellent.

apparently sony vegas does not like AVI videos though. there was a tech thread about it recently. It seems to only support their own format created by their cam corders, and wmv files.

pinnacle studio (http://www.pinnaclesys.com/PublicSite/us/Home/) is what my Grandfather uses to make his videos.

I think that Windows Movie Maker should suit your needs, but you should have VirtualDub (http://www.virtualdub.org) (has some effects and plug-ins that could make your videos look much, much better), Audacity (http://audacity.sourceforge.net/) (WMM has no built-in audio editor, and this is a very good one), CamStudio (http://www.camstudio.org) (useful if you want to record something on your screen), and SUPER (http://www.erightsoft.com/SUPER.html) video converter (to convert movies to different formats if needbe). All these programs are free too.http://i44.************/2s9b21f.jpg

I have Sony Vegas 9.0 and if/when it does this to me with AVIs, I just use SUPER to change the codec to XviD, which clears the problem right up. All other formats seem to work fine for me too.http://i44.************/2s9tx6o.jpg
