From the looks of it you need a very simple solution that gives you snipping and merging access alongwith a few filters for your videos. For that, I'd suggest you use VirtualDub or VirtualDubMod. The latter is needed in case you have any VBR streams, which is very common for DVDRips and cased videos. However, the use of VirtualDub requires the knowledge of Video codecs otherwise troubleshooting becomes difficult. In that case I'd suggest you use VirtualDub alongwith a simple and a free tool called GSpot. A simple search on Google shall link you ro both these softwares. Also download the K-lite codec pack before you begin.

If you don't like the steep learning curve, I could suggest: Kino [it's GNU/GPL and it seems to be really good, however it's codec support leaves a lot to be desired for].

If you use Windows XP, Windows Movie Maker 2 is really a very good option you could look at.

Flash Live Video (FLV) is popular with web designer and Flash fans for the advantages itself that other formats don’t own. It offers high rates of compression and produces high quality video for playback on the websites. In relative terms, FLV is smaller in size than other formats in the same situation. Moreover, you do not have the compatibility trouble in all kinds of browsers. They can work in IE, Firefox, Safari, and Opera.


Usually FLV files are downloaded from YouTube, Google Video, MySpace, etc by FLV Downloader. We will do editing for downloaded FLV to create our own FLV videos for output. Except for converting and editing FLV to other popular formats, FLV Editor Pro can convert FLV to FLV as well. Namely, export FLV including FLV encoding with H.263 and FLV without any recoding. The following tutorial will tell you how to output FLV with this FLV converter.

1. Launch the program. The main interface will pop up.



2. Import FLV to the program.


Drag FLV from “Downloaded FLV” tab to the sequence list. You can select more than one video clip to join FLV files by clicking “Merge” button.



3. Edit FLV.

Click “Clip” tab.

Drag the slide bar or set the precious values to trim the video length. Moreover you can drag and drop the green line on the preview screen to specify wanted video area or cut off the black edges




Click “watermark” tab. You can add the image watermark and text watermark.



Add image watermark:

After the image is added, you can drag and drop the green line to set the position and resize it. Click the wrench icon. The program will pop up a window for providing the settings of the background transparency. Click “Time offset” tab to type in the values in the edit box or drag the upper button of the slide bar directly to specify the lasting time of the watermark.



Add text watermark:

Type in the words as the text watermark into the edit box and drag it to choose the position on the video. If you want to set the font size, color, style, etc, just hit “T” icon. In addition, you can use the same way to specify the duration of the text watermark.

Add text watermark



Hit “Effect” tab.

In this tab, it is easy to adjust brightness, contrast, and volume. Especially you can choose special effects like spooky, emboss, engrave, etc and flip method to modify your video.




4. Export and convert.

Click “Export” button to output all the sequences in sequence list. The output settings window will pop up. You can specify the output directory, adjust video and audio parameters for better video quality, and choose output format: FLV. It provides two choices: FLV1 encoding with h.263 and FLV without recoding.

Note: If you choose to generate FLV without recoding, just trim function is remained. That is to say, you can only trim the video length if creating FLV without recoding.




Click “OK” to start conversion. In the process of conversion, you can preview the pictures of the video.



Now FLV files are ready for you! Here you can stream your FLV files to web site for sharing with public.

Either the standard windows movie maker (you can actually add your own effects and such, try going to windowsmoviemakers.net), and there's also a program called Wax 2.0 that looks pretty good. It lets you do things like have multiple video and audio tracks, as well as chroma key that WMM can't do.

ARGH! This may be a bit conceited of me, but I've had very bad experiences with Windows Movie Maker. Problems include the program taking up too much memory, not saving properly, having the timing off, not importing files properly, and finally not exporting to DVD format properly. While the stupid little program may be good enough for a slideshow or random home project video, its not up to the standards of creating AMVs or a good looking Youtube Video. And please don't preach about not having the knowledge to run the program. I was on the developers team. Not very happy at all with the way some of Microsoft's accessories turned out at all. Windows Movie Maker 2 has the same problems as the first. I managed to import the first version onto vista, and used that for quite a while. I've been looking around for something to replace this dead program for a very long time.
Thanks.

Double posting is forbidden I know, but does anyone know how to get the Spin Pack for free? Should I torrent it? Am I going to get frihosters angry if I ask such a question? Is the sky blue?

I'd highly recommend against using Movie Maker as its plagued with performance issues. It has a high tendency to randomly crash or lock up.

Furthermore, it can only export at 30FPS, however as the program is aimed at beginners this isn't necessarily a huge negative.
