Another one that I just stumbled across . . you have to download 2 deb files (for your version), then right-click the smile-data first, choose Open with GDebi, login, let it download/install any dependencies, close when finished. Do the same for the smile file . . . enjoy ! :)

i've heard of folks raving about kdenlive. i've tried to use it and had mixed results. the biggest problem i've had is getting it to play nice with my 1.3 megapixel webcam. but i have used it to mix/edit existing avi's. give it a shot and let us know your opinion. hope this helps.

Ok, downloaded openmovieeditor installed it and basically had to call NASA to use it, couldnt work out how to play the imported files let alone even get it to play the movies, uninstalled it today, will try other suggestions, but cheers to the OP for advising openmovieeditor.

cheers for the reply regarding kdenlive, installed it, actually played the movie clips, but constantly crashed on me, uninstalled it.

cheers for the post.

looks like i have to rely on the MS version of movie editors. oh well thank Christ for VM :)

cheers all

For ease of use PiTiVi is pretty much drag and drop and has pretty good support for a variety of formats, including mp4. Not the most mature editor in the world, though.

avidemux is a fairly mature staple in the video editing world. it does what it says it does and it does it fairly well.

openshot is the name of a fairly new kid on the block, and looks pretty promising. they have a ppa and repos you can add. it looks like they put a lot of effort into it, and it will probably one day go from new kid on the block to king of the hill.
