Top 10 Linux Video Applications - NOT!

Filed under
Software

I recently read a Digg post "10 Free Apps that Turn your Ubuntu into a Video Studio" and it annoyed the heck out of me! Maybe I'm being too critical, but I don't see 10 top video applications in Linux. In fact, I don't even see ten productive, functional, Linux based video applications that I would use in a production environment. Maybe I'm a bit too outspoken, but in my opinion, the article that Digg post points to is not worth the pixels it's displayed with. Based on the numerous comments from diggers, I'd have to agree that they rightfully consider that post lame.

Video Applications:

AvideMux is okay for cutting existing videos, stripping audio or video, capturing video, etc. It does not provide the functionality that some of us are familiar with in applications such as After Effects or Final Cut Pro. More information can be found on the Avidemux wiki-documentation site.

Cinelerra-CV is (the UI) closer to what we'd expect in a video production application.The functionality is much closer to those of the professional production environments, but in my opinion, it still needs work. I've tried Cinelerra three times now, and I don't use it. Why?:

Why Linux Installers Need to Add Security Features

Twelve years ago, Linux distributions were struggling to make installation simple. Led by Ubuntu and Fedora, they long ago achieved that goal. Now, with the growing concerns over security, they need to reverse directions slightly, and make basic security options prominently available in their installers rather than options that users can add manually later. At the best of times, of course, convincing users to come anywhere near security features is difficult. Too many users are reluctant even to add features as simple as unprivileged user accounts or passwords, apparently preferring the convenience of the moment to reducing the risk of an intrusion that will require reinstallation, or a consultation with a computer expert at eighty dollars an hour.
