OpenShot is one of the best open-source video editors out there. With all the features that it offered – it was already a good video editor on Linux. Now, with a major update to it (v.2.5.0), OpenShot has added a lot of new improvements and features. And, trust me, it’s not just any regular release – it is a huge release packed with features that you probably wanted for a very long time.
The hardware acceleration support is still an experimental addition – however, it is a useful feature to have. Instead of relying on your CPU to do all the hard work, you can utilize your GPU to encode/decode video data when working with MP4/H.264 video files.
