Your best option is to use a proper non-linear video editor. Some free options are:
VSDC on Windows- http://www.videosoftdev.com/free-video-editor/download.
DaVinci Resolve https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/products/davinciresolve

VideoProc https://www.videoproc.com/
HitFilmExpress https://hitfilm.com/express
ShotCut https://shotcut.org/download/
Lightworks http://www.lwks.com/
Avidemux http://avidemux.sourceforge.net/
Blender https://www.blender.org/download/
EZvid http://www.ezvid.com/download
VirtualDub http://www.virtualdub.org/
Fusion https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/products/fusion/motiongraphics
Lives http://lives-video.com/index.php?do=home

You'll want to select a playback speed of somewhere in the 20fps-30fps range. If it by percentage, these are safe slow motion settings.
240fps slowed by 25% - 12.5%
120fps slowed by 50% - 25%
60fps slowed by 50% - 40%
48fps slowed by 62.5% - 50%
