Hi, I am using Windows XP to view Freeview and recorded it into mpg file using PowerCinema 5 bundled from my Tv Tuner.

However I am using Linux most of the time and wandering is there any software could used to editing the recorded video?
I never did any video editing before and what I want to do is just basic stuff mostly cut & split, nothing fancy.

I installed Kino, seems only support either NTSC or PAL, Cinelerra looks way too complexed for my purpuse and for some reason
doen't work(haven't read its document though). Avidemux, crashing after open video file, and played with mpgtx for a while and
its output looks like a bunch of erro message to me(need confirm). It seems to me lots of sofware claimed will do simple split and
cut wouldn't work with either HD content or the recorded *.mpg file format. Anyway, did anyone know some editing tools he/she know will
working or would recommand for my purpose?

Thanks in advance.

At the moment the best bet is to join the avidemux developer mailing list and help with the support. Playback of freeview|HD at the moment is somewhat spotty under Linux so don't expect much in the way of editing tools just yet.

thanks for the promptly reply, that would save me tones of timeLaughing.

Once I had the newest version of mplayer installed and playback of recorded video and Freeview samples  are pretty much hassle free. I
didn't expect such a problem in editing it. Ffmpeg seems promising and I will probably give it a try once I figure out which options to
use and will report back if I got it working.

A lot of the tools are still using the last stable releases of MPlayer and FFMPEG, or an SVN release that is a couple of months old. The support for freeview|HD only really went in a couple of weeks ago.

I'm think we will see support in Avidemux2 relatively soon, providing I have time to work on some patches.

Cool, it is great to know somebody are going to working on that Laughing

I already bumped my ffmpeg up to version 0.4.9_p20080326 and avidemux to 2.4.3 and which is pretty much the newest I can get and still no luck.
I will try to put more infor in avidemux2 mail list maybe bugtracker as well, hope that going to help.
