Just what i needed... - This is just the thing i have been looking for to quickly edit videos. Pick the beginning, hit 'IN', pick the end, hit 'OUT'. It's super easy. Plus you can upload right to Facebook from within the app. Get ready for lots of doggie vids :)

Don't waste your money. - Mpeg-2 support? I don't think so. This application is unstable and doesn't seem to have the mpeg-2 support that it claims to have. I wish I could get my money back.

Review by 123 so be it

This is great for extracting clips from long imported home movies - I am converting my home VHS movies to digital. Shave Video makes it so easy to to this better than iMovie for me, more intuitive. The instructions are in the “Help” menu. I like the ability to speed up the video to set the start and end of the portions that I want to remove. These can be set to an individual frame. I have extracted over 2 hours of home movies into clips filed by date and subject. My next step will to combine these segment into a movie by subject, grandson, granddaughters, etc. I have many VHS movies to convert, this is going to take weeks to do. The new MacPro really helps.

Useless for me - Won’t work on mp4 video without the long dead Perian. The developer’s website is gone. It may well work on mov

Review by ShaveVideoUser

It's a great app, but... - I find this app much easier to use than iMovie when all one wants to do is trim away the garbage portions of video clips. My only complaint is that Shave Video seems to update itself automatically on a daily basis, even though the latest version is already installed.
