Anyone successfully using this? http://www.kdenlive.org/ remains down (since 
Saturday at least), but I installed it anyway based on a look at 
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kdenlive. So far it is just as unintuitive and 
useless very other "video editing" application I've tried, which is a bunch.

Just getting it installed was no fun. I tried it on 12.1, 12.2 and 12.3. On 
12.1 it wouldn't install due to some obsolete mlt5 requirement with only a 
newer mlt6 available. On 12.2 I only managed to get the older v0.6. On 12.3 I 
first got a non-functional 0.9.4 because it required an older ffmpeg than the 
one installed. By forcing to the 0.9.6 version from Packman it installed, but 
without having pulled in various packages that I had no expectation of 
needing (dvgrab, dvdauthor, genisoimage/mkisofs).

The obvious place to start, I would think, is to open a video file, so that's 
what I tried. Since all the files I have that need commercials removed are 
.ts files, apparently I need something less obvious than "file open", as its 
file picker found none of my .ts files in the directories in which they are 

So, is this yet another program that can't remove commercials from video 
transport stream files? If it can, how? Help doesn't work ("help center" not 
installed, without mention of package name containing "help center"). Do I 
have to "capture" from the .ts files before editing? Is some sort of filter 
missing? The file picker filter list only has 3 entries, none of which I 
recognize as a video file type. Is there a FAQ somewhere that's accessible 
that lists the file types it can work with?

words are persuasive." Proverbs 16:21 (New Living Translation)
