I am looking for an easy video editor for Ubuntu 12.04. My needs are simple: make clips and upload them on sites (cut segments from a video file with frame to frame precision, convert into common formats, resize the file).

Do you have to suggest one?

Thanks for the reply.

I like OpenShot, but you can find a full list here. Take a look to Linux section, eventually you can search in Software Manager for the given keyword.

I suggest PiTiVi. To Import/Export in MPG, MP4, MP3 and Other Common Formats, GStreamer is Required.

I had a great experience with Kdenlive which is also in the default Ubuntu repository. It has a bit more functions than the OpenShot and seemed to me more robust.
