It was a GNU Hurd developer that convinced me that its good to use FOSS on windows, some freedom is better none, even GNU Packages run on windows and most computer users run windows. So here’s a list of links. Some are equivalents to replace software on windows and some are the equivalent on GNU/Linux and some are cross platform so its stupid to call it the “Linux” equivalent. They also make the mistake of saying alternatives to commercial software. The opposite of FOSS is proprietary software.
My friend Archie Moore asked
“Can you recommend any Free (as in freedom) video editing software like premiere.”
I dont know premiere so if its obivous to anyone please leave a comment. All of the videos I’ve developed has been using free software so I think it would better to say “I want to do this, do you know any software that can do that?”
The main one I use is Avidemux, basically you can take a video, chop it all up, apply some filters, resize, crop etc, maybe add some audio and then put it all back together and save it in the format you want. I also use Blender for some things.
I use ffmpeg, ffmpeg2theora and mencoder for converting to different formats. On windows you can use mediacoder.
Probably the most powerful one is Cinelerra but it only runs on GNU/Linux.
Last I heard Archie was in the UK or Europe so I hope he’s having a good time.
