Subject: Making a Youtube Video on Improbable Island?

Yeah, i plan on doing one on "How to get along on I.I.", but thing is:

1. I do have a way to record my doings in any game or whatnot.
2. I don't like to talk. I hear this is pretty much a prerequisite on youtube, sadly.
3. I do have a way to put text in my movies and i can manage by youtube's editing, but it's a very painfull process when you have to upload an uncut movie that's 3 hours long. (I'm pretty sure "How to play I.I." will be longer)

So basically, i need a video editor that's preferably *free and that can put narrative text on 'em, funky effects excluded. Also, i need to cut my movies down to *5 minutes or less. A video recorder would be nice too, but i think i got that one figured.

(*By free, i mean TOTALLY free, i don't like going through the internet more than i have to. Personal issues, you understand.)
(*I try my best to trim down to 5 minutes, because quite honestly, nobody watches people play games for 30 minutes on youtube when you can be watching kitties.)

Well, Lester, let me point you in the direction of Wikipedia's list of free and open-source video editors. I can not recommend any of them authoritatively, as I haven't used any of them.

As to screen recording, I could also point you to Wikipedia's list of screencasting software, but I'd actually recommend (for Windows) using Open Broadcasting Software, which is technically a "software vision mixer" (which is somewhat more powerful than a screencaster)
