I hoped to avoid building it myself, but if it is the only way ...
Why? This is the best way by far.
I know, but in most cases it is not done with just building, but one has to install a bunch of devel packages, libs and so on.
And this is something, I try to avoid - you can just call me lazy
By the way, could you please reveal the reason to reencode h264 in a HD resolution as mpeg2? Making a video DVD? It is such an awful waste of storage and loss of quality.
I have a few relatives living far away, who are only capable of playing video DVDs.
Sometimes they want me to record some tv broadcast and send them the DVD.
PS: If you run into problems while trying to build Avidemux, questions are welcome.
Thx for your offer!
I hope, I don't need your help, but one never knows.
