Having found a work around Photobucket I then settled back to join 2 short videos together on You Tube.

And, you guessed it, they've moved the goalposts. Or, more to the point, dismantled them and taken them home.

I refer to the very useful You Tube Video Editor. Apparently not enough people have been using it. Now you have to find an external way to do it and I was fooled into downloading what I thought was a free site, only to find that they want $60 to buy it.

I can use it for a trial period I think and it does look useful and relatively easy. Anybody else editing videos without using the in house editor?

Have a play around with this bunch David, https://www.dvdvideosoft.com/index.htm?app=dlyt&src=topbarlnk , I think that I paid 9€ for the premium edition, it enabled me to down load 17 youtube songs in one hit

Thanks Peake, although it seems more angled to downloading music, I did have a look at the video editing section too.

The only thing was I saw much mention of cutting bits out of videos, but not anything about what I want to do. That is, taking 2 or more very short videos and splicing them together to make a longer, single one, with various types of fader transmissions between them.

What is so annoying is the fact that I've only in the last few months got to grips with this, and now they abandon it. I learnt about it from a very useful tutorial video and have added a comment there asking if this person had any ideas as to how to proceed from now.

I will study your link in greater detail later and see if it can be used to my advantage. Thanks again.

Sadly this is the way things are going - vendors are getting people hooked onto the web where they can charge an annual subscription and get a consistent revenue flow. We see it from Microsoft, Google, Adobe and many others.

Sorry if you have said before, but I cannot remember if you are PC or Apple user. For PCs:

I use Windows Movie Maker with Windows 7. Sadly, it is discontinued so you will have to hunt for its offline installer as part of Windows Essentials 2012 - the file is called WLSETUP-ALL.EXE - and I think it will do what you want and is actually quite good!

Windows Store does list this - https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/store/p ... blggh4wwjr - I cannot recommend either way having not used it, and it is probably Windows 10 only.

EDIT: having read Peake's response, to clarify this is to work on two local videos - not videos already on YouTube.

I am sure others will have their recommendations. Good Luck!

Thanks J for your help here and elsewhere.

The thing I mentioned above is Wondershare Filmora and last night I overcame some problems and managed to stitch 2 videos together into a very creditable single.

At the moment it wants to scroll round and round but I'm sure with a bit more perseverance I'll get that sorted and then will no doubt be competant enough to snip bits off and play with sound etc.

It isn't free (they all say they are, but...) but I am able to do this before deciding to buy, for $60. As long as it is a one off I'm sure I can cope with that rather than have nothing at all (the Dobie forum, all enthusiasts, do like their photos and vids 8-| )

I found I had Windows Movie Maker already on this computer (it was 2nd hand from a friend after bereavement) and at first it seemed very straightforward and easy, but it needs me to fiddle about with formats before it will accept videos from my camera.

So for the time being I am going to try to improve my skills with Wondershare and, maybe, pay the money and get rid of their watermark. :|

I see from Peake's link that I can download a free MP4 to MP3 converter.

I'm wondering if this is what I need to use my videos on Windows Movie Maker.

Seems a bit of a chore everytime I want to make a video, but perhaps it is a way round my problem?

I gave up Photobucket years ago when for some reason, I could no longer log into it. I went over to Flickr which was fine for a long time. However, they then limited the volume of photos and after that it became paying .... The same thing happened with various other photo handling sites, so I just don't bother any more. If you want people to see your photos without having to pay for the privilege, it's easier to do it via Facebook - you can make them as private or public as you want.

Or you simply set up your own website :)

The trouble with Facebook is the possibilty of certain people with an axe to grind, blackening someone's reputation with twisted facts and denying the right to reply.

This is precisely what happened to me. I was invited into a group, did the creator of that group a favour, and then found that because of misunderstood conversations that person told lies about me to cover her previous lies, and then banned me from the group to prevent me making any defence. To this day all those people have only one version of the events.

I will never go back.

I don't join groups for exactly that reason - it's like joining an un-moderated forum. I joined a French horsey group for a short time but it was far too orientated towards the UK. I made a comment condemning people in England who just turned their horses loose to roam all over the roads because they couldn't afford to keep them and was called "judgemental". I haven't bothered with the group since, nor any other. I don't blame FB for the type of person who uses it - I stick mainly with people I know. Animal welfare groups are well-known for postings where emotions run high ....

I now post some a few on FB only - for example horsey and surf/lifesaving competition photos for public viewing, as well as photos which cannot be seen by the general public. I also have some interesting and amusing friends there ;)

You can use FB as you want and it's easy enough to avoid controversial discussions - just don't go there !

No - MP4 is video - MP3 is just audio - like on an iPod MP3 player - sound tracks.

Normally your camera should produce MP4 and MovieMaker will take that. What format are your video files?

VLC runs on Vista - that offers some conversion utilities and is free always - no watermark, no $60

That's exactly what I'm using J, VLC mp4, on both my camcorder and camera but Windows Movie Maker will accept neither.

A message popped up and I'll try again and read what it says, but it was double Dutch to me. 8-|

But at least with a forum, moderated or otherwise, you normally get to hit back, or at least explain your real position. With this FB group, I was blanked out with no warning.

Just tried again and, briefly, the notice says that the required codec is not on my computer and that I should therefore install the codec.

Doesn't say how or from where.

I should say that when I clicked to import the video the window it opened in the appropriate file included all the photos there but the video files from my camera weren't there.

So, I opened the file seperately and, of course, then seeing the video there, tried to drag and drop it to Movie Maker. It was then that I got this message.
