The Simplest WMV Editor – Merge, Trim, Crop, Rotate .wmv Videos with Ease

Updated on Aug 12, 2020

I wrote this article because a recent case got me thinking that how troublesome it is for an individual, especially a novice, to find a decent and trustworthy video editor and manage to handle it correctly. There's a best one in my experience, a handy, practical, and useful WMV editor that I'd really like to share with you, here's the link for free download.

My neighbor William came to my door a couple of weeks ago asking if I could help with some video editing. Some movies of his are in traditional WMV (Windows Media Video) format, and he was eager to make some video clips out of them. Easy peasy – That's what I thought. But when I got to his computer, what I saw on his desktop is Sony Vegas Pro. Honestly, it's a pro-level video editor that's hard for even me to really get the hang of. From the perspective of a beginner in video editing, it is overqualified for some basic jobs, just like to use a steam-hammer to crack nuts.
