Running Wheezy. My task is simple. I want to copy a segment from an avi or mp4 movie and save it into an avi or other video file.
Looking at Linux video editors I am lost with kdenlive. Kino seems simple enough for what I need.
The problem is that when I export a selected scene it seems to do work for 20 seconds or so but then ends without an error message and without producing any output. I stumbled onto the fact that if I install mencoder the XviD MGPEG-4 AVI Single Pass option will work. Nice. But what about all the other export options? What do I need to install to get those working?
Is there a better or different tool I should be using? I keep thinking it should not be this hard to simply mark a section of a movie and copy the scene into a separate file. Or am I just that numb?
