A kick in the nuts is better than windows movie maker as far as I am concerned. Until you get to studio level (and even then it is debatable) you do not really need to pay for anything.

What do you want to do though?

For simple encoding of video there are several apps although they are usually simplied methods for the more complex stuff later and use in batch files. To this end I suggest you start with stuff aimed at basic tweaks to video. Again many apps exist but a good start is
virtual dub

and/or avidemux:

For more advanced stuff there is avisynth:

I contend that this with filters can do just about anything out there in the video world and the basics are not that bad.

Several apps use avisynth as a backend if you want the simple encoder thing from earlier:

I like megui myself.

Ripping DVDs or similar will involve first decryption and then getting it out of the container it is held in. There are a few threads around here but post back if you want more info.

    I came across yet another one of those "gaming on a $2 laptop" videos and I'm irked, again.

    This time it's a "budget phone" that costs $99... on a Cyber Monday sale... if you sign a two year contract with the provider... only in America. It's $600 everywhere else.

    Well, can't you just select 'Don't recommend channel' so that YT wouldn't keep recommending them?
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Because it's not just one channel doing it.

  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    It could be just YT in general.
  • Veho @ Veho:
    It's like wack-a-mole, you ignore
    one video and two more pop up.
