EZVid is Adware

EZVid

- make sure to not install the nation toolbar when installing ezvid
- the install downloads a 162mb binary (ezvid_package.exe)

EZVid does a good job of dumbing down video editing. It supports simple cropping and automatically replaces your audio with a choice of youtube-legal tracks. However, the only output format is upload to youtube. They reserve the right to embed adds in your video, an it's not even clear that the video would be uploaded to your own youtube account.

These things considered, it seems much better to use the native windows or mac video editors, despite their complications/limitations.
