Video Encoding Help

Does anyone know a good encoding tutorial?
I want to take a piece of a video and put it on YouTube. Any advice on how to do this?
I have a PC. I heard Mac software is really good at this, but that won't help me.

    As far as I understand it, YouTube has it's own encoding system that automatically does its thing when you upload your video.

    No, that won't work.
    I need to make a video clip. That's what I meant by "piece of a video" above. Youtube's software can't do that (I think). The other problem I have is black borders around my video which I want to remove. Basically what I need is transcoding and editing software. Do you know any that are available for free?

    Ah, my bad. In that case look up a program called Avidemux. It's an open source program that is actually pretty useful. Play around with it and see if it does what you need. I know that it does have functions like cropping and some filters.

    I've also found that if your source video is in Quicktime MP4 (H264) format at 320x240 seems to work pretty well.

    Hope this helps!
