    Is working as of 26/6/2019, not as complete as kdenlive or shotcut (the other ones i've tried) but also simpler to use.

  • Free and simple video editor that supports a variety of file types and automated tasks.
    This alternative is disputed. It's still a legit alternative but it might have some issues that some users think is important.

    While Avidemux is not nearly as robust & feature-full as Kdenlive, it is still a video editing software & does much more than just mux.

    It's very well made despite being in alpha. Olive seems very promising even at the start, and may eventually become better than Kdenlive. Only time will tell, though.
