    You on a Mac or PC?
    Windows moviemaker would do the job, as would imovie..

    You could use the online YouTube editing tools.

    Plucked this tutorial at random – there may be better ones

    Movie Maker on XP is a doddle to use. I didn’t like the “upgrade” on Windows 7.

    Let me preface this by stating I am virtually illiterate when talking technology so please keep this in mind if you reply with advice/help – it needs to be the ‘idiot-guide’ version!!

    Bought a camera for use on the bike – CarCam from 7dayshop – and its OK for what I bought it for – I use it mainly for my daily commute, just in case, having had a number of very near misses and a collision with a bus – sadly no witnesses!

    The camera records in 5 minute segments to the SD card.

    Im wondering if there is a simple way to edit these together so that each journey can be one video clip, rather than 3 or 4 separate clips?

    Any help gratefully received!

    OK. So with me nothing is ever that easy…..haha

    Movie maker seems really simple to use, but every time I try to import a file it ‘encounters a problem and needs to shutdown’.

    I did try uploading one file onto my YouTube/Google account, but this was telling me that for 1 5 minute file it would take 351 minutes to complete. Given that I didn’t have the thick end of 6 hours spare I cancelled and gave up.

    Any advice please?

    @fazzini, that used to happen with mine (windows 8 though), try right clicking the icon for moviemaker to bring up the menu’s. Try find the option which says ‘run in compatibility mode’. Worked for me, might be worth a shot as i no longer have this problem now.

    On another note, does it take so long to upload even one 5 minute file onto YouTube because of my pathetic broadband connection speed? oh how I wish for fibre optic like once before!!!

    Your likely upload speed is 300-400kbps (easily checked online) so about 20 seconds per MegaByte.

    So if your clip is about 100Mb it should only take half an hour.

    I use this freeware to cut the sections out of the video. Then you should be able to import the clips into Movie Maker
