I'm using Mint 13 with the MATE desktop environment. I wanting to learn how to do some video stuff, but searching for answers gets a bit overwhelming, so I thought I'd ask if anyone knows the easiest route to go.

I'm using Recordmydesktop, which puts the out.ovg file in my home folder, which easily uploads to YouTube. What I want to do is to be able to remove part of the recording - such as removing the first three minutes of a five minute video. I don't know if I need to use a program other than Recordmydesktop, or install another program to do the editing. Does anyone have any experience with this?

Thank you,

Keith

This doesn't get you started, but it does have a full range of tools from video and photo editing. Basically it's a full multimedia operating system. :)

Thank you for the ideas, I'll have to look into them a little further.

DarkSnake-Kobra - Interesting that I see you are in Iowa, because the majority of recordings I'm doing are from the Eagle nest cam in Decorah.

You're welcome. :)

Sweet! I've never been there, but I've heard about it. I live over on the Mideastern side near the Mississippi. Around the nose if that's what you want call it. :P

I find myself using kdenlive much of the time. I have several video editors installed though.

kdenlive

Lives

Kino

Openshot

And more stuff.

Out of those four kdenlive seems to have the most features and works pretty good. Make frequent saves though. I've done quite a lot with kdenlive although something like Openshot may be fine for what you need. Openshot is nice, just haven't used it much personally. I usually just fire up kdenlive even if it's just to edit out a portion of a video.

Thanks searchme2 - I've installed both Openshot and kdenlive now, and will post back how they work out for me.
