m2ts editing in Linux


I would like a suggestion for a simple video editing program in Linux for m2ts files. I use a program in Windows (from Sony that came with the camera) but I do not like Windows, so I was wondering if there is something for Linux and opensource (nothing fancy, just removing the parts of the video I don't like, saving as original m2ts and maybe rotating the image).

Hi there,

by "m2ts" you're referring to MPEG2 Transport Streams, are you? That's what you usually get from the PVR function of many digital TVs or cable/satellite receivers.

So it's about a video shot with a camera? Then MPEG-TS is very unlikely. MPEG4 or H.264 in a Quicktime or mp4 encapsulation would be more common.

Anyway, for simple editing tasks like cutting out undesired parts I can recommend Avidemux, which is available for both Windows and Linux. I'm using it regularly to strip commercials from TV recordings, and it even has some filters in stock - like resizing, cropping, color correction and so on. I'm not quite sure ATM whether it can rotate video ... wait a minute ... ah, yes it can. At multiples of 90 degrees. :-)
Under certain conditions, Avidemux can cut and edit your video without re-encoding it, and therefore without loss of quality. However, it can open and save a multitude of different video formats.

But I'm curious what your so-called "m2ts" really is.
