How to Cut Videos In RealPlayer
Use RealPlayer to edit your video files for free. (video montage image by Oleg Verbitsky from

Similar to Windows Media Player, RealPlayer allows users to organise their favourite MP3s and videos, rip and burn CDs and watch movies. The most recent version of RealPlayer also lets users edit their video files by using the "Trim" feature. The feature enables you to capture a specific clip in your video by removing unwanted portions of the original file. After editing your video, you can save it to your hard drive, upload the file online and share it with friends and family members on your favourite sharing or social networking site.
