How to install VidCutter 5.0.5 on Ubuntu 17.10, 18.04

    VidCutter is an open-source video trimmer app for Linux, Windows and macOS. It’s built using Python and Qt5, and uses FFmpeg as its decoding and encoding backend. It lets you cut, split or trim large video files in to smaller, easier to share clips.


VidCutter 5.0.5 Changelog
  • patch release mainly for users of the AppImage binary which has  been overhauled and tested on Ubuntu Trusty, Vivid + KDE Neon.    Also contains latest nightly binary of FFmpeg so SmartCut will    work properly (FFmpeg needs to be fairly recent for proper HEVC    and MPEG-4 Part 2 formats to work in SmartCut mode)
  • fixed timeline slider tooltip displaying time position to only appear when mouse is over the slider widget. this stops it from constantly appearing whenever media position changes. No longer displays constantly during playback unless mouse hovers above timeline.
  • Removal of Python 3 OpenGL module to allow app to work on Linux distros containing older 3.0.1 versions of the module. The dependency on python3-opengl has now been removed and was only necessary for Ubuntu users on Vivid due to a broken PyQt5 OpenGL implementation in the core PyOpenGL package. Vivid is no longer a supported distro version so it should be okay to omit on a  permanent basis. 

 Installation instructions:
