Re: Can anyone recommend a Windows editing software that works? GoPro Quick is the worst!

I totally agree. This is horrendous. I have a state of the art laptop, tried to download, reistall, unistall, etc, etc, over and over and over -for weeks. Quick crashes ALL the time. Never even once got it to work. Donno if it's even what I'm looking for. All I need is a software that can compress and zoom in on excisting videos. Where can I find that kind of software? Obviously Gopro fails. Truly dissappointed, frustrated and very unhappy. The support/forums gives me no answers or clues how to actually edit my vides. I don't need music add-ons or what ever. All I need is to compress videos to be able to share in social medias....
