comment Tool for automating video splicing at slide transitions?
I don't want to manually figure out where the transitions are. Can kdenlive analyze the video and automatically suggest timestamps which might be good transitions? They're pretty clear transitions (e.g. a video of a slide show, the only big changes being between one slide and the next, though some of the time someone is writing on the slides you see the writing, but not the person)

comment Video editing software options?
Much easier interface than Openshot: visible audio waveform, video thumbnails on the timeline, good keyboard shortcuts, copy-paste from timestamp, which is more precise, not a cpu hog.

@oli pip freeze, in precise at least, also lists packages installed by apt, as other answers here describe.

comment What to use to quickly cut Audio/Video
Thanks! avconv is blazingly fast and clear and convenient for splitting out clips if you know what start/stop times you want. No need to figure out which OpenShot video format your source file corresponds to, which I still don't know for sure....

Thanks! But these ppa versions are out-of-date. Are the versions in Precise 12.04 good? Or can someone suggest better ones?

Re "What's the best way to install just one package from a PPA that has many packages?", see apt - How do I cherry pick packages from a PPA? - Ask Ubuntu
