Is Wondershare Filmora a virus?

Hi, I have been hearing mixed opinions about Wondershare Filmora Editor being virus or malware. I currently do Youtube and I find Filmora a very easy solution for editing videos. I've ran Norton, Malwarebytes, AdwCleaner, and SuperAntiSpyware scans and they have all came back clean. What got me to post this was when I came across this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A3bV-Zc6TRY . The person in the video scanned Filmora in VirusTotal and got all kinds of things. Then when I scanned it in VirusTotal only one antivirus said it was dangerous.. what shall I do? Remove it or keep it? (Just fyi, I did a post on qmalwareremoval and it came back clean with Filmora Wondershare installed.)

Thank you!

Well, I am not sure. I scanned it with virus total now and it is only 1/66. (by the way thats the exe file of it) So, what would you say? Keep it?

Other than default agree to CEIP, the file I downloaded looks okay to me.  I'd ignore youtube.  I trust qmalwareremoval forum.

From your earlier posts, you are signed up at Qmalware forum for a check of your system. When that site checks your system, they should be able to assure you whether your system is clean or not. When you sign up for help at a site like that, you should not be asking for or taking any advice from other sources. It can make it harder for the malware experts to help if you try anything on your own.

Things happen. Export/Backup your Norton Password Manager data.
