Thanks for the Crash, Windows Movie Maker!

Pretty much what the topic title says. For some reason, when I try to go into Timeline Mode in Windows Movie Maker to try and add some commentary in preparation for the Youtube edition of my Rygar Speedrun, it up and crashes on me. Not good.

So I’m putting the call out there: Are there any free alternatives to WMM out there? I don’t need anything super fancy, really, just something where I can load an .AVI file, split it up as needed, maybe throw a pause or two in there, and narrate over it (And be able to output this as a seperate file). Can anyone help me out here?

    I have 512 MB, although honestly I’m beginning to think this comp is on its last legs for some other reasons. I really want to avoid shelling out for another one for as long as I can though.
