Check the Package Manager in your (sorry, I no longer run Ubuntu)
Administrative (?) menu list, or under the Applications menu selection
for (maybe) maintenance.  Specify "edit video" or just "video" as a
search term, and then check what it turns up.

I had a couple video packages installed at any one time during the
years I was working and playing with Ubuntu, but do not remember the
names atm.  I do recall there being some options, though.  GL
