Today's build of 'movit' does not show up in the Update Manager.

Synaptic shows I have libmovit1 1.0.3-xxxx installed
and a new libmovit2 1.1+..... not installed.

If I try to remove libmovit1 it will also remove kdenlive with mlt etc. etc
Trying to install libmovit2 will also remove kdenlive, mlt and libmovit1

Hey!! Forget the above, I've got it working!.

Removed everything and reinstalled but with libmovit2.

Movit is very, very, very cool.

Nice work guys.

So movit is apparently a free library for GPU-based video effects (http://libregraphicsworld.org/blog/entr ... processing). And sunabs current repository has MLT compiled with movit as a dependancy.

So I guess this is cool. But norm - how would I notice how cool it is? What practical differences should I see if I install kdenlive/mlt/movit libraries?

Well it was not cool for me.
Upraded with sunabs repository.
Start kdenlive.
Movit failed intialization. Exiting.
No kdenlive

Oh,sorry about that. Can you check in synaptic to see if your libmovit is installed. For some unknown reason in my last update I had to install it manually.

EDIT:- Just wanted to add that I find it best to get the latest builds from here:-

http://builds.meltytech.com/kdenlive/latest.rss

Just unpack it in a folder somewhere and run it from there. It doesn't affect your system install.

Yours is the third one down I think.

I got the same error from the daily builds and from the build script.
I restored my root partition from an image to undo this disaster.
I think I will wait this one out.
