I've been making YT videos about the Raspberry Pi but have had no way to edit them on the pi. Are there any nice Raspberry Pi-compatible video editing apps?

  • are you using the RPi to make the videos?

    to be honest, using a raspberry pi, even a 3+, to edit videos would be like driving a model T ford in an F1 race Mar 16, 2019 at 2:16
  • I am using a RaspberryPi 2 rn, I have 3 and 3B+ to, I am making YouTube video on basics of the Pi, but I cannot edit them, I found some "editors" openshot and kdenlive but they both have a lot of suck fests. Mar 16, 2019 at 14:32

Just run apt search video editor and then apt install <PackageName> for a package you like. However all of those weren't built for raspberrypi, so they'll lag and not fully functional. I've actually written a simple one that doesn't lag as much, but it isn't descent as well... RPI is just too weak to handle a good one.


Open shot video editor

It is a very good video editor, but I recommend editing 480p videos.



id recommend using an online one like kapwing. it's the one i use....


You might want to try Kdenlive, but running on anything worse than a Pi4 with 4gb of RAM will be incredibly slow. If your looking to do more complicated video editing you need to use a different, more powerful computer as the Raspberry Pi just doesn't have the capability for that sort of thing.
