So I've been making videos of me playing video games.  To post them on YouTube I want to cut the videos into chunks of about 25-30 mins.  That way they are view-able without making a bit commitment.  I have been using Windows Live Movie Maker, since it came with my computer.  It works fine for videos that are 3 hours or less, but it doesn't work at all with longer ones.
With the longer videos, it just stops giving a preview and freezes a lot when I try and work with it.  I've done a few "work arounds" that deal with saving a temp video and going back and editing that.  Well, that takes a long time.  I would rather be playing more or doing something else than saving a video just to have to edit and re-save it to make no real changes.
I've tried an older version of Adobe Premiere, but since it is an older copy, it doesn't like the MP4 format I have to work with.
All I'm looking to do is to go in and cut out the breaks I take (which also make editing easier) and to be able to save each chunk individually and in 720p.
I have a Windows 7 machine.

Edit: Feel free to include some less expensive softwares that might do what I want.

When in doubt, use more glue!

iMovie is very easy to work with. I don't know if you could get an emulator to run it on your windows machine. Alternatively, you may want to look online for places that convert files. I know they exist for sound and image. Not sure if there are limits to the size. But there are plenty of free sites that would do it, which may make it easier to work with your adobe software.
