VLC Team Working On A Cross-Platform Video Editor

A decent video editing tool that’s not exclusive to Macs — it’s something a lot of us have been asking and hoping for. The team behind Lifehacker favourite, VLC Media Player, is working on one, and it’s a promising prospect.

At the moment, the software exists only as a working github repository, but the official announcement page describes VideoLAN Movie Creator (VLMC) as “a free video editing software, offering features to realise semi-professional quality movies, but with the aim to stays simple and user-friendly.” The page also notes that VLMC is being developed “with the support of the VideoLAN organisation”, so whether it’s a direct product of the VLC team remains to be seen.

A helpful Reddit user compiled the Linux version and provided the early screenshot seen above, while the site promises a pre-release alpha for Windows, Mac and Linux “very soon”. We are, to put it mildly, intrigued and excited to see what comes out of this open source project. Thanks chappell101!
