OpenShot Video Editor: Features

OpenShot Video Editor

"I have a simple mission: To create an open-source, non-linear video editor for Linux. Many have tried and fallen before me, but for some reason I feel compelled to try myself. I am documenting my journey in this blog for all to read. It will be a dangerous journey, and I might not make it back alive. Hold on tight, and enjoy the ride! By the way, I'm calling this project OpenShot Video Editor!"

OpenShot's Features include:

OpenShot provides extensive editing and compositing features, and has been designed as a practical tool for working with high-definition video including HDV and AVCHD.

Welcome to the OpenShot Download Page! There are many ways to install OpenShot: LiveDVD, PPA, DEB Installer, and the Build Wizard. Which one should you use? Please read the description next to each method to decide.


To try OpenShot on any computer (without installing anything), please download the AV Linux LiveDVD. Burn the ISO image to a DVD, and boot your computer with the DVD drive. OpenShot is installed by default, and you can safely evaluate it. AV Linux is a Debian-based multi-media focused Linux distribution.

PPA Instructions:

Easy install, and Easy Updating! Our PPA only works with Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic) and 10.04 (Lucid). Install using the PPA.

Download Installer:

Please choose the correct CPU and OS from the lists below and download the installers.

Version 1.1.3:

Build Wizard Instructions (Debian / Ubuntu):

We also have a build wizard available for Debian and Ubuntu, which downloads the latest source code and compiles all of the dependencies.

Source Code Tarball:

If you are just interested in downloading the source code for OpenShot, here is a tarball with the entire source from our bzr branch. An alternative way to get the latest source code is to use the following command: "bzr branch lp:openshot". To install OpenShot, run the command "sudo python install".

NOTE: This tarball does not include the dependencies that OpenShot requires, such as MLT, FFmpeg, Frei0r, and Sox.

Go there...
