what kind of program could i download, so that i can take bits and pieces from a movie and upload to sites like youtube?
Depending on what file type the movie you want to copy it is in, technically you could simply use Windows Movie Maker. Another alternative is to google something along the lines of “video screen capture” or something to that effect. I know a lot of people use hypercam, but I have never had much luck with it. Could be my laptop tho.
