SIG-Linux Topic: Video editing tools on Linux: Presented by Sharan Kalwani

Our current SIG-Linux Chair Sharan Kalwani will give us a full review of various Linux  video editing tools. The first video editing tool we will start with is AVIDEMUX. Avidemux is a free and open-source video editing program designed for video editing and video processing.  It is written in C++, and uses either GTK+ or Qt for its user interface. It is available on non-Linux platforms as well such as Mac OS and Windows. It supports both 32 and 64-bit versions (meaning beyond the 2 GB file size range).
