Kdenlive is a nice video editing program. it is available in the repo sudo apt-get install kdenlive

  • does it support mp3 files for cropping ? – melic Jun 20 '17 at 10:58
  • did you mean? mp4mp3 is audio only, no? yes it crops and transforms and you can add audio files also – ravery Jun 20 '17 at 11:01

I'd recommend audacity for audio files (inc. mp3). It's not command line (or at least I've never used it that way) but gui, handling ogg vorbis, mp2, mp3, wav, aiff, and eu.
