k9copy for DVD backup/ripping, and Kdenlive for video editing. Kino's good, too, so I'll vote for it since neither of the others are available for vote.

Next year, how about a DVD backup (or maybe Ripping tool) category?

I personally like MainActor the most, but it is not free. It does run on linux (natively), though, and it seems to support capturing from camera's .

People wanting mencoder-- most of these apps are listed are frontends to mencoder, transcode, vamps etc that's what you're voting for... the apps that make managing and using these programs the easiest.

My vote strongly goes for tovid, it is the most powerful tool in this category that I have used, and that includes proprietary windows software. With it's tovid-batch, makemenu, makexml, makedvd, and more importantly the ability to do what you want from the encoder of your choice without at the same time having to micromanage ffmpeg, transcode, mencoder etc is sweet. The man pages are excellent, and it's a great solution for an all-in-one suite.

My only complaints are that there is still clearly alot of work for the developers to do. And the gui frontend doesn't offer nearly as much options as the cli does.

I haven't used all of those listed, but so far, my preferred app is DeVeDe also.

Kino - relatively trouble free and simple to use.

transcode

i cant vote on any of these since i have never used them.

i use a nautilus script i created that uses transcode (http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...d.php?t=510861) so i would vote for that.

thanks,

its a crying shame DeVeDe is not on this list. this my complete solution for making dvd movies viewable on a standard dvd player. I just tried Maya. Its unfair to have it in this poll. This is an awesome app.

Cinelerra deserves way more credit than it gets. You can do some really cool stuff with it. It takes some doing to learn, but there are tutorials and if you follow them it isn't too bad.

To the guy who installed Windows just for video editing .... maybe you better check your Firewire chipset -- a few don't work with Linux, most do. I will soon buy a dual-boot laptop for video editing, but I plan to do that in Linux, not Windows!

Cinelerra isn't perfect, but it has a large set of the features of the costly commercial products .... and for free/open source. Wow!!!

the only thing close on that list to mencoder/transcode is avidemux2 (svn all the way) for editing its svn all the way stable to me aren't good enought and svn just seems more stable lol.
for cam its kino or mencoder(mplayer). cine and lives are really diffrent types of video editing .

I agree, Cinelerra is a lot better than what it is voted for. Kino is horrible for editing. Avidmux is the same as Kino. Cinelerra from Heroine Virtual Ltd. is not stable, but Cinelerra CVS is very stable. Though I have to convert videos to a lossless MJPEG or use MPEG-2 videos which is no big deal.

Maya, CinePaint, tovid, LiVES do not fit well in this group. Maya is for 3D rendering. CinePaint is for single picture 16-bit per color channel (48-bit color) editing. tovid is for helping creating DVD video discs. LiVES just does not work and it is not easy.
