-Ubuntu Jaunty
sudo sh -c "echo 'deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/jonoomph/openshot-edge/ubuntu jaunty main' >> /etc/apt/sources.list"

Then add the GPG key:
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys EDFBD1F9
Then, if you havent installed Openshot before:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install openshot

Or, if you are upgrading:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

Alternatively, you can just download the .deb files from OpenShot website.
