Try using a converter called Handbrake. short guide to using handbrake

Oh dear - that converter distorts the picture

& You tube won't even accept it unedited

Thanks Sorrel

If I use that Camtasia thing do you know if I'll have to convert them all?

Open WLMM, add your film, click edit and then set your start and end points.

If you can't load a mov file into WLMM, you should be able to google and find something that will convert the file for you first into a wmv. Like this.

Oh dear - this is not a good start

My files end with .mov.........Windows can't import .mov

KatyMac Fri 07-Jun-13 14:50:04

OK - I'm starting this now

So.......any tips?

I think I need to crop the start & the finish

Then Windows Movie Maker should be fine. You can put in effects and stuff easy enough smile

It's for a dance audition so needs to be a bit OK but not worth paying for I guess

Depends how pro you want your video. WLMM if you're not that bothered/only editing home videos, Camtasia if you want it to look amazing and want to fiddle with different things smile

For very simple editing, such as cutting a bit out, I use Windows Live Movie Maker. It may already be installed on your system. If not, you can download it free from Microsoft - here.
Very easy to cut bits out of videos.

I suggest doing some tests, so that you make sure whatever software you use can open the video file whatever camera you are using produces.
