Kudos for Kino

Filed under
Software

Kino is a video editor that allows you to produce your own video masterpieces using only free and open source software. With it, you can capture and edit clips from your video camera, add titles, insert still images, create transitions between scenes, and output the result in a number of formats. Best of all, it's easy to learn to use.

Kino supports only FireWire (IEEE-1394) for capturing video from your camera. No FireWire, no capture -- USB is not an alternative. USB is supported only to control external devices like jog and shuttle wheels that you may want to use for editing and playback.

Because Kino uses dvgrab to capture video, you'll either need to run it as root, tweak permissions for the 1394 device, or add your user to the video group.

2014: The Open Source Tipping Point

2014 was a tipping point where companies decided there was too much software to write for any one company to do it by themselves. They are shedding commodity software R&D by investing in “external R&D” with open source. Those who master the game have a compelling advantage. Those who don’t are getting left behind. We are experiencing an innovation renaissance that is largely driven by open source software that powers distributed, scale out systems. It’s been a pleasure to see this trend develop this year and I’m looking forward to 2015 with anticipation. Read more

KDAB engineers have contributed lots of code to Qt during the last few months. Once more, KDAB is the second largest contributor to Qt (the first being The Qt Company itself). The commit stream has been constant, as you can see in this graph showing the last 16 weeks. Read more

Git 2.2.1 Released To Fix Critical Security Issue

Today's Git vulnerability affects those using the Git client on case-insensitive file-systems. On case-insensitive platforms like Windows and OS X, committing to .Git/config could overwrite the user's .git/config and could lead to arbitrary code execution. Fortunately with most Phoronix readers out there running Linux, this isn't an issue thanks to case-sensitive file-systems. Read more
