This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Try Kdenlive ( . It's on the Ubuntu Software Center. Works well on many formats, including the ones you wish to use (.mov and .mp4) and it's quite simple to use.

Since OpenShot does not work for you, you could try Avidemux, which has a simple interface and is lightweight. If that does not work for you, you could take a look at this site:

Which lists Avidemux as well as 4 other editing programs you can try. Though I would suggest trying Avid first as it seems most like what you are aiming at.
