In this post I am demonstrating how to install kdenlive and Cinelerra. Both of them are very powerful video editors


kdenlive is a free open-source non-linear video editor for Linux and it supports DV, AVCHD and HDV editing. Kdenlive depends on other open-source packages like FFmpeg, MLT video framework and Frei0r effects and it provides multiple tracks to work with. For a full feature list visit

! I have one remark if you already using Openshot Video Editor be aware that when you follow the instruction in the video clip Openshot will be removed and in order to re-installed it you have to remove kdenlive with the following commands:

sudo apt-get install ppa-purge
ppa-purge ppa:sunab/kdenlive-release

Hello all UVC subscribers,

I am proud to announce that I finally added a Forum and a Chat area where all UVC subscribers can exchange their knowledge and ask question. I will go actively through the forum I try to do my best to help where ever possible. Please visit the Forum and the Chat and test it out. I know that there is still a lot to improve but I believe this is a good start.

I also like to inform that I plan in my next Article to write about Linux and Active Directory authentication. I will introduce a few third party application and ask all of you to add more possible solutions if you believe that yours is better or easier or if you prefer plain open source.

That’s it for tonight
