Edit a youtube video

Postby starlight1968sg » Wed Jun 25, 2014 3:30 pm

Dear all
Appreciate some help, please.
1) I have a youtube video which I would like to convert to wmv so that I can save it in my hard disk.
2) How do I edit a long youtube video so that I can select only a portion of it?
Thank you.

You can use videograbber to download it....but can't remember what format it is saved as.

I have downloaded them as MP4 video. Now exploring how to edit so that I can select only a portion of the video.
Any advice, pls.

Ah...I use Freemake video converter (they also have a downloading app) to cut/trim...it's quite easy to use.

Loads of tools for it, I suggest AppGeeker video converter, it would work for you.

I have been involved in video encoding for a few years now and this is one of the simplest tools with good results.

To get a portion of the video, just move to the editing panel and use "trim" option to deal with that.

Search for media converter on google. The first link is the best one. But they only allow 5 conversions per day.

Windows Movie Maker is actually pretty good for these basic tasks. I use it as a last resort.
