It is easy to use

Avidemux is a free and open source video editing program, making it simple for anyone to edit videos quickly. Available both for Windows and Linux operating systems, follow these steps for installation:

Once installed, you can begin using this software immediately. To begin using it effectively, load up the video you wish to work with by pressing “Open” in the main menu or selecting it from file manager window. Once that video is loaded up, use “A” and “B” buttons to mark where you would like to cut the video at.
