iMovie is the free video editing software that comes with all new Apple computers. If you have an older version of iMovie, you'll need to pay to upgrade to iMovie 11. iMovie 11 is an intuitive program that lets new and experienced video editors watch video clips, edit video and audio, and share videos on the web or on DVD.

Final Cut Express and Pro are the intermediate and advanced versions of Apple's video editing software. As you would expect, they work seamlessly for Mac video editing.

These online video editing applications are not as feature-rich as editing software that you would install on your computer, but they do allow you to do simple video editing online. And it doesn't matter if you're using a Mac or a PC, as long as you can access the internet
