You can edit your video with windows but it is like running a race with gumboots on.
There are very good software for this purpose yet they are not cheap.
Since you will most likely upgrade to a full digital video camera soon enough, such expense may not be warranted. I would go to a gig's shop and ask the guys to edit it to the appropriate format for a fee that will surely be a fraction of the cost of softwre. They may show you how to uplod to you tube too.
Don't you have teenagers in your family?
