Tip #1 Install with full dependency
The libmlt release as provided by ubuntu is downlevel, hence install it from the ppa as shown below.
rm -r ~/.openshot sudo apt-get remove ffmpeg sudo apt-get purge ffmpeg sudo add-apt-repository ppa:jon-severinsson/ffmpeg sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install ffmpeg sudo add-apt-repository ppa:sunab/kdenlive-release sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install libmlt5 libmlt-data libmlt++3 python-mlt5 melt libsox-fmt-all sudo apt-get upgrade libmlt5 libmlt-data libmlt++3 python-mlt5 melt libsox-fmt-all sudo apt-get install ladspa-sdk sudo apt-get Install frei0r-plugins sudo apt-get install blender sudo apt-get install inkscape
When you preview your edited video follow these steps.
Press the play icon
To stop Press “||”
Don’t pull the slider marked “Green” below the video preview. That is buggy.
Press << to take back to zero.
You can play it back again. The timeline slider worked well. But I always used “<<” to restart the video to “zero marker”. That worked reliably.
Export to the video formats from here. This had no issues.
I recorded the audio independently in “audacity” and fed it in the Video. When you insert something, its better to save your “Openshot file”. I experienced hangs/freeze at random points.
Final Edited Video
I tried piti, novacut, avidemux, lightworks to experience worse behavior.
I am yet to try openmovieeditor. I would like to hear the communities views on a better editor
