Don't use compressed formats - that's wmv, mpg, avi (xvid, divx).

Download and install the amvapp package and use VirtualDub to convert your clips to huffyuv. Try importing those into wmm.

use those to mark the beginning and the end of the "clips" you want so you can save room

open the video file in virtualdub mod go to video->compression->Huffyuv or Lagarith

then go to file->save

skip the stuff about exporting from WMM and go down to the virtualdub stuff:

this will tell you how to open .wmv in virtualdub
