Blender isn’t a “video editor”. It doesn’t edit video files. It’s a 3D animation program.

Just in case anyone is interested in downloading something all inclusive.. for basic editing I like using RealPlayer. It was a free, one click download and also includes my video player & downloader, editor and video converter. Yes, you have to download .. but only once.
