    Hey Everyone,

    I just ripped a DVD to my hard drive via HandBrake (homemade DVD not a movie or anything like that) and the resulting file turned out to be about 1.5 Gigs.

    Now, I want to take this movie and cut particular clips out of it for two reasons:

    1) I tried importing the entire movie in iMovie and it looks like its going to take a full day to do it (too large)...I cancel it typically


    2) Its a football video so I only want 10% of the stuff in this video.

    Someone help. How can I open the video, easily cut out the clips I want and save them as their own movie files...then import them into iMovie for individual editing?

    Google for MPEG Streamclip - dead easy to use. You might need to also download a video component from Apple for it to work properly. Good news is that Streamclip is free, bad news is that the Apple component is 20$.
