Hello, I am new to video editing, and this is what I would like to do:

I have some DVDs each containing about a dozen video clips (chapters) averaging 17 minutes each. I would like to extract each video clip as a separate file and convert to an mp4 file. I would also like to trim down the video clips to 15 minutes each (the maximum allowed by YouTube), then upload to my YouTube account.

I've figured out how to copy the DVDs to my computer. I also figured out how to use Handbrake to extract each chapter and convert to an mp4 file. What I need help with is figuring out a simple solution to edit the mp4 videos; all I really need to do is chop out a few minutes from each clip.

I'd prefer something simple that works under WIndows. Any recommendations would be welcome.
