  • This is the only video editor for Linux which does not crash every 5 minutes! It simply does what it says it does, provides the essential and mandatory features for video edition, cuts clips accurately where it has been asked to cut. Too bad that it's no more supported because now on Ubuntu 16.04 the FX exports are broken! If someone has a workaround for this that would be wonderful!

  • Thank you for all the Kino fish, Dan.

  • Excellent work, great tool, bravo! I want to replace in this soft the use of ffmpeg by avconv, can I send you a patch as this project does not seem very active? In any case, thank you.

  • Great project, but need updates! Kino is indispensable for many, for its simplicity.
