I have a big folder full of MP4 files, but I only want a certain section of each one. I have been looking for ages for a good free easy software app to cut and edit MP4 files, but I have so far been unsuccessful. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Any Video Converter Free is a free and easy to use tool to help you edit various video clips. It can can free trim any video files into several clips , merge multiple media files into one to make your own video, cut off unwanted borders from a video frame to feature a favorite clip, rotate to bring the action to put a new angle on the action, customize brightness, contrast, saturation, resolution to get the best effect, add subtitle, etc.

    For easy option,Freemake Video Converter is good.Although a converter,it's easy to use and works best with CUDA enabled Nvidia GPUs else consume upto 99% CPU usage.

    For a little complicated one but professional grade is Editshare's Lightworks and is free too -

    Hello Mark, I dealt with the exact same situation as you a few months ago and so had to evaluate a large number of video editing software. Fortunately, Wikipedia keeps an exhaustive list of free and open-source video editors.

    Windows Live Movie Maker was by far the easiest to use, with no drawback. VideoLan Movie Maker had a similar interface and function, but it's more or less strictly inferior to WLMM.

    And basically all the other movie editors were overly complicated for the simple purpose of cropping video and audio.

    One of the most irritating things is that many free softwares for video editing required registration. And ultimately, their software fell short of WLMM.

    I was using Badaboom but that wasn't working anymore so I have shifted to Avidemux. Its an encoder and works just fine. Also take a look at MediaCoder. That is also a suitable alternative.

    I want to second the person who mentioned Audacity. It's the most full-featured audio editor out there if you don't want to pay.

    I use Freemake Video converter.
    It is used mainly to convert between formats, but it contains an option to edit a video, which lets you cut parts of the video. You can also choose to merge several videos. After that, you can choose to 'convert' it to mp4 again with the 'same as source' settings.

    Microsoft Windows Live Movie Maker has a trim function. It is a free download and pretty easy to use software and supports MP4 format.

    You can use Format Factory, or if you wanna lose quality of video, and get a better cutting of the video (cut by frame), use Megui (but this is more advanced option).

    • Lisa Santika Onggrid

      Format Factory will convert the entire video. This might be useful if you want to convert it before editing. Windows Movie Maker works good enough for simple edits. If MeGUI is too advanced, you can try VirtualDub, which can also cut video frame by frame.

        Format Factory will cut the video too, but using minutes and not frames! This is if you want a simple cut! For better cut you can use MeGui! WMM it's not a recommended version, I think! VirtualDub is advanced too, if you think about it! Also VirtualDub doesn't support too much formats!
