Video Editing – Ubuntu vs OS X/Windows

I’ve been playing about with video from DVD for work and have realised that Ubuntu is far superior compared to either Windows or Mac for built in software or free to download.

iMovie and Windows Movie Maker just chokes on VOB files and have no built in conversion software and Movie Maker only outputs WMV

Compare this with the powerful ffmpeg on the command line with Ubuntu and Kino for editing.

I would like it if ffmpeg had more output options but I suspect that is because I don’t know how to add codecs?

Any of the video I exported and tried to play with Quicktime in OS X – it complained of errors. So I installed VLC on OS X which plays it straight off.
