Incorporate kdenlive into Fedora


Add more support for video editing to Fedora. Kino already exists and is a simple video editor, but kdenlive is a more sophisticated non-linear video editor that would give an improved user experience.


  • Name: Need one

Current status

  • Targeted release: Fedora 12
  • Last updated: 2009/05/28
  • Percentage of completion: 00%

Detailed Description

Incorporate kdenlive into the Fedora mainstream, thereby getting it better integrated into Fedora so that it uses the same versions of libraries, and the same installation methods. See [] for the current packaging status.

Benefit to Fedora

Fedora currently has kino, which is a nice simple video editor. Kdenlive would provide an improvement to kino in both usability and sophistication.



Test Plan

Create a set of packages for Fedora that do not depend upon any incompatible libraries or non-free code. Test and integrate with F12. Release in F12?

User Experience

Users will have a more intuitive video editor with more, and better supported, functionality.


  • MLT
  • MLT++
  • Numerous video codecs and libraries

Contingency Plan

  • stick with kino
  • stick with Fedora 11 which has kdelive
