ty but i wanted opinions on which was the best (on windows) at least as far as free programs go.

(btw the link for moviexone is incorrect it said "Our apologies for the inconvenience, but the page you requested cannot be found.")

For free programs, I don't know of any out there that are very good, at least not any that run on a Windows OS. I know that Blender has the ability to do some kind of limited video editing, but it's a VERY complex program and its main function is 3D graphics. Until you save up a little, your only real option is WMM.

Sorry :/

If WMM is crashing, there is usually an underlying problem with your system. Try reinstalling Windows XP.

The system is fine its just when i have over 1:30 of clips loaded in. Then it freezes and ive heard people say "just leave it it may unfreeze" i left it for 2 days and it was still frozen (theprogram itself anyway) maybe it just doesnt like hellsing clips?

What about things like <a href="http://www.bobyte.com/AviTricks/index.asp">AviTricks</a> and <a href="http://www.thugsatbay.com/tab/?q=zweistein">Zwei-Stein</a>?

Belive it or not my first "test video" which will never see the light of the internet was made using downloaded fansub Mahou Sensei Negima (i thought it was funnier than the dvd stuff) and it worked fine. But the clips i took (using the guide on the site) from my friends hellsing dvds are the ones causing the trouble.

zwei-stein is hurting my head...
I cant figure out how to preview where the video is actually changing instead of just one frame while the audio plays on...

re-read this and thought it was vague so ill re explain: i have the codec, avitricks said i didnt, i redownloaded the codec, avitricks still said i didnt have it. now avitricks went bye-bye.
