I just started trying to use avidemux. It seems to load jpegs from my cameras just fine, but won't open jpegs I've exported from gimp. It gives this error message:
"Attempt to open /home/ogf/Desktop/frames1/1.JPEG failed!"
Then I click ok, and I get the message:
"Could not open the file"

What am I doing wrong?

Version 2.5.4, running on linux mint 17.1 rebecca.

Just tried it running on ubuntu with the same result.  :(

eumagga0x2a

You should use the latest version (2.6.15). 2.5.x is a legacy application where development ceased years ago.

Either build yourself, which is very easy on Linux, use the appImage provided by the author of Avidemux or the binaries provided by Jan Gruuthuse.

No install just run, if not running check properties and allow to run.
universal app image, use latest: http://www.avidemux.org/nightly/appImage/

only 64-bit debs (ubuntu)
14.04 LTS based: http://avidemux.org/smif/index.php/topic,17277.0.html
16.04 LTS based: http://avidemux.org/smif/index.php/topic,17276.0.html

build yourself:
- Compiling Avidemux 2.6.x
- avidemux 2.6.# Compiling Avidemux on Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS

Build, don't build, run, allow , app image...
I have no idea what any of that means.
I am not a software developer. I just want to make videos. I used the mint software manager to install it, now I am looking for simple instructions to fix the problem.

I looked in the mint update manager, but avidemux was not listed there.

Jan Gruuthuse

It is not in the update manager.
Ï not a developer either.
App is application, no installing.  Just download. Right click on it (properties), allow to run.

Debs are installables.

Building is making your own installables. 3 choices. Try the app. Double click once you allowed it to run.

Ok. I went to the link you provided, and downloaded the latest file. Then I opened avidemux, and clicked on file: properties, and absolutely nothing happened.

Not opening avidemux!
If you speak about the 1st option and downloaded the app. You right click on the downloaded app. And set there the allow to run option. When this done you run the app by clicking on the app. Got his app is avidemux and should open the this avidemux  and not the installed Avidemux.

Using the app: Avidemux Universal app

I did exactly that.
I found the box, and clicked allow.
I restarted my computer.
I opened avidemux.
I tried to open the jpeg.
I got the same error messages.
After all that, I still have exactly the same problem.

Can you upload such a jpeg?
You can save the jpeg in Gimp as .png, is the png opening in avidemux (installed or app?)
jpg is still loading here in avidemux see screen shot.
Also attached a jpg for testing in Avidemux @ your side
