Video editing, some help needed

We have spoken many times about Go Pro and other cameras. I now have several and have just downloaded a good vid off Go Pro HD.

This was using Windows Media and I have also watched it with VLC media player. I now want to edit this to use as upload to You Tube and off course my website and Ribnet, What product should I use to edit.cut to size etc and maybe add music?

Thank you Ian

Windows Movie Maker has always worked for me. Free online but you may already have it installed without knowing it. It can be a fiddle sometimes, but the windows 7 version is definitely better than the older ones. It should do everything you ask of it.

Ok, I have Windows 7 home premium and appear to only have Windows media player, Windows media centre, and Windows DVD maker. Where do I find Movie Maker, or can you link in the download please.

Microsoft Website of course

Remember to uncheck all the other unnecessary "Windows Live" bits if it tries to install them alongside.

You should have it amongst your Programs but, if not for whatever reason, try here:

Windows Live Movie Maker 2011

Excellent on Movie maker, all downloaded and a 55 min video has been captured.

I am now trying to understand the processes. I have cut a section of 1 min 35s and am trying to upload to You Tube which has been giving me an estimate of 99mins to load, so what am I doing wrong?

You can save the file as a project file: ie a collection of media cut into a specific order with these credits and such and such. You then have to publish this project file, thereby stitching everything together into one file. If you select custom settings I think there is a slider where you move it along, to find a good compromise between quality and size of file. Otherwise just let it run and see. Remember your upload speed will be significantly slower than download speed. Maybe run a speed test and see what it is?

Cheers, Yes download speed is a wapping 1.02 mb and upload at 0.17

So I will just let it run and see the outcome.

Not sure movie maker supports HD so your wasting the quality of the GoPro ?

I use power director 10 - that's got a free trial (google it) and also a direct upload button to YouTube which saves time. You can also set it to shutdown once done so can leave it and toddle off to the pub - working all the while.

Nice feature of full HD upscaling too

Expensive and needs huge specs on pc to work but worth it.
