Several cross-distro packaging formats provide an easy one click install system for GNU/Linux distributions:




Latest stable AppImage (19.04.2f) is available here:

To install, just download the file and make it executable, ( chmod +x ) in a terminal, then run it. On Arch linux and derivatives, you need to install libselinux from AUR to run the AppImage.

Daily builds


You may download and test the daily development AppImage from KDE servers.


You may download and test the daily development from KDE servers.

  • Standalone: Take the file with the ending “64-gcc.7z“. You need 7zip for unpacking. To start Kdenlive double click Kdenlive.exe in the “bin” folder.
  • Install version: Take the file with the ending “64-gcc.exe“.

This should not be used in production and at the moment we cannot guarantee that your project file won’t get corrupted by using this version.




Legacy builds (unsupported)


Here you can find the legacy builds for Gnu/Linux and Windows.


The Windows 19.04.2-5 install version.

The Windows 19.04.2-5 standalone version. Double click the self-extracting exe (not an installer, does not need admin rights to extract). To start Kdenlive double click Kdenlive.exe in the “bin” folder.

To install Kdenlive double click the downloaded exe file. Run Kdenlive from the start menu.

With the 19.04.0 version the JPG rendering issue should be solved. There are still known issues.


Kdenlive and MLT can compile and run under Mac OS X. Packages are available from the MacPorts project, unfortunately they are outdated. Volunteers are encouraged to contribute.

Compiling and Installing

Most distributions ship Kdenlive packages. However, Kdenlive and its core libraries like MLT are evolving quickly and distribution packages are not always available for the latest version.

Check our documentation if your distribution is not in the list for instructions on how to compile and install manually.
