From Fedora Project Wiki


MLT is a LGPL multimedia framework designed for video editing


Update MLT to version 7.4 (latest version)


Current status

Detailed Description

Update of MLT from v6 to v7 breaks the builds, binaries changed the name and devel files changed the location [1], authors argue that facilitates have 2 versions of MLT at same time, but I personally don't want keep 2 versions of MLT because MLT just have 3 or 5 projects that use it.


Benefit to Fedora

Up-to-date MLT, synfig and synfigstudio releases will be delivered to Fedora users.
