Requires Ubuntu 20.04.

Minimum Requirements: resolution of 1920x1080 for your primary screen, and graphics card with drivers able to run version 4 of OpenGL shaders and at least 4GB video ram. Suggest installing the latest graphic drivers and recommend the system uses an SSD Drive.

You will need FFmpeg installed. sudo apt update;  sudo apt-get install ffmpeg;

If you have trouble importing a file (e.g. mp4), you could review:
which amounts to trying this: sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras


If you wish to report an issue or ask a question, please use the support forums here or email contact@vidifold.

I hope you will get as much fun playing with it as I do.
