    There is very little software for editing MP4 type files, so far. It's a fairly new compression standrard. You're probably better off converting to DV-AVI and editing the results.

    MP4 is a video compression method that sacrifices quality for smaller file size, much like the comression used for DVDs which is MP2 (or more properly called MPEG-2). Files so compressed are not really intended for further editing, outside of simple cut and paste operations... and even those can cause problems.
