Multimedia, AV My husband and I are thinking of buying the Canon Optura Xi camcorder soon (in our opinion, the best DV camera at this range). Because I run so many OSes I always have 'embedded' in me this "thing" to only buy supported hardware by the major OSes. I am sure Optura's DV part will work fine with some Linux tools, but then what? How do I easily edit my... masterpiece and burn DVDs or VCDs via an integrated solution and send them to our families in Greece and France?

I just installed Avidemux. I tried both the CVS and the release version and they will both fail on linking because of a libc check that never takes place on its configure.in. I managed to fix the issue and send a clue to the developer. So, I have it now installed and up and running. But I am not impressed at all. The UI is a disaster, even though it seems better now than the older screenshots on their site. If someone from the Gnome community enters their project and start some usability tests the app can become pretty good. Still though, no DV capturing.
