that depends on ...
  • what you consider a "normal" video
  • what editing features you need
  • what "user friendly" means for you

My favorite is Avidemux. It's intuitive and easy to use, cuts and merges MPEG1, MPEG2 and many MPEG4 variants, can even take Flash video and many WMV videos as input, and can cut and merge without re-encoding the entire video. Also supports some transformations, like resizing, cropping, changing frame rate and fading.
I use it regularly to remove commercials from my TV recordings, and to shrink DVD videos into space-saving MPEG4 avi files.

There are quite a few editors available. Some are lives, cinelerra, avidemux. See if you any of these fits your bill.

thanks for all your suggestions..

normal for me... a video editor that can perform functions like MovieMaker. even its simple in can produce a nice video that has proper placement of text, layering, transitions, effects.. and so forth.
user friendly for me ... a video editor that can be understand how to use it.. not complicated one...

i ll try soon ~ THANKS!!
