OK , I have downloaded the video one AVI and again in Mp4 from the
Internet archives. I put them on the time lines of several different
video editing programs. Openshot Editor, Cinelerra, Pitivi, kdenlive as
well as Kino. I tried to render them to a dvd file also for youtube.
The computer crashes at different points in the video. By rendering I
mean to bring audio and video into one file and export it. I have
tried all these at different times. I am beginning to think I don't
have enough memory and the machine is using the hard drive in place of
memory and is too slow??? I don't think it is a problem in the files I
downloaded as the crash occurs at different places each time I try.
