How to install Kdenlive on a Chromebook

Today we are looking at how to install Kdenlive on a Chromebook.  Kdenlive is my favorite video editor to date and I have already edited more than 1500 videos in my life with it.

The version which we install in this video, 18.12.3, is not the newest version, as it currently does not work well on a Chromebook, but this version works perfectly and it is also the version of Kdenlive which I am currently using as it is very stable and just works.

I hope you find the video helpful as a visual and audio guide where I also explain each step.  Enjoy!
