Multimedia, AV In the past in order to make good home movies one needed either a Mac or a Windows PC. There were no good video editors for Linux in the past. Today with Jahshaka and Main Actor the things that could only be done on a Mac or a Wintel machine can now be done on a Lintel machine as well.

Re:mpeg2 editor?

I'd like to find a nice mpeg2 editor for linux. I record mpeg2 from my tv and would like to cut out the commercials before re-encoding them.

Check out avidemux: http://fixounet.free.fr/avidemux/
It's great, you can edit and encode mpeg, divx, xvid and I'm sure other formats as well. I think it's similar to virtualdub although I haven't tried that one.
