Cutting downloaded video

Hi guys,

Is there any way I can cut some opening megabytes from a mpeg that a friend emailed me. It's a family video but the opening scene is a bit dodgy for me to show the family! It's a 40 mb mpeg and just need to cut say the first 2 mb, can I do this and what software do I need.

Many thanks

Good editing software I use all the time, and FREE.

I don't think much of the feedback on it, even disregarding the 'trolls' from a commercial site ;). Also, last updated 1999?

Try windows movie maker or download Uleads editing software these will both do the job without being overly complicated.

Feedback can be important but in this case I don't think so. As I said I use this all the time and have NEVER had a problem with it. Many of the progs I use are no longer in production but they do the basic things they are supposed to do. Today many programmes have a steep learning curve when there is no need. This does what it says on the box. It cuts mpg files. Plain & simple.
