Over all review

Kdenlive impressed me yesterday. Once I read the quick start guide and online manual on the fly, and tested it on a video that need resized,cropped etc it transcoded the video to what I needed.

Using this type of editor is a small learning curve due to the interface which is much different than avidemux. I watched a video on youtube about how to join videos with kdenlive which is very simple. I admit I though since this a KDE application I expected it to crash on transcoding not one crash. I have three videos once I am done with editing and joining I will post the results.

Openshot is not really an editor more of a dvd trancoder creator. Most other are the same I need croping resizing frame rate changing and kdenlive can do all that.

I have not look at cinelerra to much i have youtube videos on editing I will view. I think for now i will keep exploring kdenlive. Thanks for all the replies.

Did try the frontend to ffmpeg winFF and it has options I also can use. but of course I like kdenlive. I may try the mint 18 KDE release once after the beta . I really did not know mint had a KDE edtion [ I feel like I missed something oh wait I did]. For my needs cinelerra it confusing for me at my stage of use of the type of interface. I will get comfortable with kdenlive
then read the manual for cinelerra and practice.

Wow with openshot

I was trying to find a editor to convert webm video to mp4 and I tried kdenlive which did not know the file type. I than tried openshot and created a project and did a small edit on the video and saved it. than ran the project and encoded the output it gave me mp4 options. I was not expecting that to work.

[ I use ant.com downloader on linux in firefox which has a issue with encoding video on linux which I am working with ant.com to fix] With macs it downloader will encode only so far in mkv but that I can live with. Though this was worth mentioning.

I was using PClinuxOS 2016 a few months back it would not let me install any addons in firefox. I changed basically cause it is a rolling distro and I wanted a stable system.

why don't you try youtube-dl instead?
it defaults to downloading highest possible quality, which, in my experience, is always mp4.
and it works for other video sites, too.
