How to Edit MP4 Video Files with MP4 Video Editor?

Q:  "Today one of my friends used a camera to take some videos in MP4 format. The video can’t be edited in Windows Movie Maker. Actually I can transform the MP4 to AVI etc. and edit the files but it takes long time and the final edited videos are usually larger than the original mp4 files which rather defeats the object of the exercise. Is there any method of editing MP4 as it is and without expensive software?" --- Question from Rosa Jangle
