Editing video under Linux
There are a few options for editing video under Linux, ranging from the simple to the complicated. Some are command line tools that require fairly intimate knowledge of codecs and the like, and some are GUI applications which can be used to generate fairly professional results.
There is a common misconception regarding Kino, that it will only read/use dv files. This in fact is not true and Kino can use AVI files. Below is a mencoder command line, which will take video files and convert them for use in the Kino.
mencoder -oac mp3lame -ovc xvid -of avi -xvidencopts bitrate=1350 -o output.avi input.flv
In this example, the input file was an flv video from YouTube, but the principle should be the same for any video file you wish to use. You will need to have the lame package installed, as well as the mencoder package to be able to use this.
After this you will be able import video files into Kino
Note, on first running of Kino, you must select a Normalisation preference in the preference box, either PAL or NTSC. Otherwise Kino will refuse to import an video file.
