I do software development for a living and as a hobby (examples). My favorite language (and ecosystem) is Python, and my OS of choice is Debian.

comment What is the most advanced video editing FLOSS?
@steven Well, that would then be "what is the most stable/reliable ...". Anyways, I found avidemux pretty stable, but it often gives junk output.

comment What is the most advanced video editing FLOSS?
@steven Am lost in translation. Are you suggesting that the editors are unstable? If so, why do you think I'm suggesting that they are? My point was that the word advanced has nothing to do with stability. At least that's how interpret it.

comment How come I suddenly don't have any audio?
@alex I unistalled some programs, so was checking if they were still alive. Have you played with lsof before? When a process is still alive, and the file gets deleted, it's flagged as "deleted".

comment How to remove an audio track from an mp4 video file?
Doesn't work so well. Maybe it's a bug, but the audio comes back mangled, though it does do the job (remove the rest of the audio tracks).

So you do think this is the most advanced FLOSS in this category? Note that I'm not looking for a recommendation.

This could be it, because I installed it as well. But then I didn't even stop it, and the problem went away.
