Whether you're a professional looking to save money, a student looking for a program to help with a school project, looking for software to edit videos for YouTube channels or its just for intertainment?, then you've come to the right place! Note that other non-windows product like QuickTime works in a complicated manner in Windows OS, due to this, Apple has discontinued production of QuckTime windows version as of January 2016.
I'll be available to address any issues you might have, in the comments section and on our forum.

Disclaimer: Be careful when installing the software(s). Choosing custom installation will often give you the opportunity to see exactly what components the software is installing and choose which parts you do or do not want. Downloading free software on the internet is (usually) risky, so ALWAYS pay attention to exactly what you are downloading and where you are downloading it from; it's for your own machine's health!
