    Really awesome article I love these video editors

  2. Civali says:

    Cheat, only Online Video Cutter is free. The others has a price plan!

    1. RamenBunny says:

      I agree! The article states “Top FREE Video Editors” and this is just a scam!

  3. Negron says:

    Excellent article. Thank you for sharing and your time & knowledge. One tiny constructive criticism on the description for #3: “have began” (in my understanding) may be improper English grammar… Either: “it began” or “it has begun” that little (past-tense) helper verb, in between, dictates that you use “begun”.

    Nonetheless: I will be trying out the Online Video Cutter today. Thank you, again.
