Playing with the movie function with the E-m5, I got the 8 min video that I need to chop up into 2 min sections for uploading.

What's the best option to

1) Reduce the size

2) Chop into 2 min sections

What are the free programs recommended?

Thanks in advance.

Basic video editing tools are bundled with Windows and MacOS - which OS do you use? If you can't find it on a Windows PC you can download from here:

Also, why do you need to split the clip up? - which service are you uploading to?

You can also use VirtualDub, free/open program. You find a lot of free filters for it : stabilizer (Deshaker plugin), adjust brightness/saturation/contrast...etc.

It is good for start.

Just google it and you fill find it.
