This question already has an answer here:

Video and music editing software that can be used on Ubuntu 14.04? I installed Kdenlive, and seems to work okay, except that it tends to slow down the system a little. It also takes a bit of time to get your head around it. But I was wondering if there were other alternatives that I should try out as well.

OpenShot and Audacity are good video and audio editors respectively.


Directly from Software Centre:

  • OpenShot install from here

  • Audacity install from here

From Terminal:(Ctrl+Alt+T)

sudo apt-get install openshot
sudo apt-get install audacity

Alternatively you can use Pitivi video editor,


From Software Centre here or from terminal,

sudo apt-get install pitivi

Handbrake is the best video editor available in my opinion.

Installation :

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:stebbins/handbrake-releases
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install handbrake

For music editing you should give a try to Audacity which is available in Ubuntu Software center.

Installation :

Install via the software center

Or in command line :

sudo apt-get install audacity

Those both applications are free and open-source.
