As kdenlive depends on quite recent dependencies not always available in the main distros repositories, wouldn't it be possible to have a static package (like blender i think) including everything?
This would save the trouble of having to make different packages for each distro, and solve a lot of problems for people not having the last ffmpeg, or codecs, etc.
I understand that it would make a heavier package, maybe less integrated in the destkop... but at least everything inside would be up to date and working. I guess it would be better as well for developers for tracking bugs as there will be less variables in the package.
Can the developers tell if this is something that can be done?
