A client wants its customers around the country to submit videos to be edited into a presentation for the annual customer meeting. The customers are managers with no video experience, probably near-100% on Windows.
I've recommended that they offer two methods: (1) submit actual camera tapes, or (2) upload to a special FTP site set up for this project.
I use professional software for my videos, and have no idea what to recommend in the way of free software. Criteria: ease of use, quality, and preferably already on a Windows computer.
Windows offers an "automatic" route for uploading video from a camera into a computer, using Windows Movie Maker.
