It's almost like there are these periods where our relationship is smooth and steady, and then there are times when it's like standing on the edge of this gorgeous, wonderful waterfall and just letting yourself drop, knowing that there's a safe pool of water ready to catch you at bottom. You take the plunge and you're in wayyyy over your head, but oh man, it's exhilarating, it's breathtaking, it's just incredible and you feel better than you ever have before and the water is cool and refreshing and exactly what you needed.

Sam is my waterfall.

Video editing

Does anybody out there have a clue how to split a large video file into two smaller ones?

I've uploaded MOST of my wedding vid, except, you know, the IMPORTANT part. Which is too long for YouTube to accept. And mmaker and the other FIVE programs I have downloaded aren't recognizing these MP4 files I have. At all. I'm clueless and getting upset.

ANY help appreciated!

Look for freeware to convert mp4 to window movie maker format.

http://www.videohelp.com/tools/GSpot should be useful in identifying the codecs involved in the video. Once you know what you have, you can install those, then use tools like VirtualDub (http://www.virtualdub.org/).

I've just realised you could do this with iTunes (I know it works on the Mac side and I presume the same options are available for windows.
If you bring a copy of the video footage into itunes, you can use the Get Info command on the video (right clicking) and set the start point and the end point of the section you want. Then you can right click on the video and choose convert to ipod format. This will create a new video of just the selected parts of the original. Drag the new video from the iTunes window to where on the computer you want to keep it, and upload to youtube or whatever.
Reset the start and stop times on the original footage, delete the new video from iTunes, and you are ready to repeat the process for making other excerpts.

if all else fails, you can ask here

Found the freeware. It's mp4cam2avi. http://www.brothersoft.com/mp4cam2avi-download-134631.html

Works like a charm.
