Why not open a terminal and type "yum search video". I don't edit or record video, so I can't speak to the packages listed, but avidemux and lives seem to be interesting.

You might try Pitivi. Save often, though. It tends to be a bit unstable.

There's also kdenlive, avidemux, lives, kino, and a linux heavy weight is cinelerra

http://www.kdenlive.org/
http://fixounet.free.fr/avidemux/
http://lives.sourceforge.net/
http://www.kinodv.org/
http://cinelerra.org/

Most are in the repos.

I have also had some luck with Pitivi. Although as Dan says, exercise caution when using it and do not do too many things at once with it ...

OpenShot is quite easy to use. Lots of tutorials about it on YouTube as well.

HandBrake to encode to .mkv/.mv4.

Post Re: which Open Source software to edit vdeo?

For beginners, Pitivi & Openshot is the best as it is very easy to use.

For advance editing, Cinelerra is the one.

Kdenlive is my choice. Easy to use Plenty of capabilitys and fairly stable. Easy cut past and render.

Re: which Open Source software to edit vdeo?

Kino: no longer in Fedora repositories (for F19. I don't remember if it was F17 or F18 when it was dropped)
Cinelerra: Not in (never has been) F19 repositories
Pitivi: This one IS in F19 repositories
Avidemux: In the repositories
Openshot: In the repositories. for a GTK program, this one wants to pull in a lot of KDE dependencies.

Once you get the video edited, you need a way to get it onto a DVD with the proper menus. Devede is a nice tool for that. It can create video DVDs and CDs (VCDs sVCDs, or CVDs).

I had used Kino when it was available to edit the files and then Devede to generate the ISO to burn to DVD. It worked well. If you want to stick with what is readily available, you could install avidemux, openshot, or pitivi and try them all. Then choose the tool which works best for you.

Re: which Open Source software to edit vdeo?

My favourites are OpenShot for assembling the video, and Devede for final DVD creation.

I use ffmpeg to do the other processing, such as cutting out clips. However it is not very good it getting the start point frame perfect

Re: which Open Source software to edit vdeo?

I use kdenlive. However, I had to compile it completely from sources according to some recipe on the web because of ffmpeg problems. However, that might be only my problem with my movie..

Good luck with your movies!

Re: which Open Source software to edit vdeo?

Neither Pitivi nor Openshot seem to be able to capture a video streaming on the internet.
Which application can I use to at least, at minimum, capture what is playing on the desktop?

I tried VLC and that failed; it only took a few screenshots.

I'd like something simple, where I can just record the display on the desktop, if not the actual streaming.
