Avidemux keeps crashing in the middle of editing

Lately when I try to edit certain files I keep getting an "ExceptionFiler" error which leads to a failure and Avidemux completely shutting down. This happens while scrolling through the video wit the mouse trying to determine the cut points but also happens if you use the buttons.  If I use the crash file to load the job it crashes in exactly the same spot once again but if I delete the index file and re-index I usually get a successful edit, even it it takes a couple tries.

For some reason I have only noticed this problem with one TV series recorded from the History Channel.  I just installed the latest nightly build from Jan 4 and the issue continues.

Thanks for any help.


Please reproduce the crash and provide resulting admlog.txt. Please don't delete the file which triggers it, thanks.


OK, but I don't remember where to find the log files



The log gets overwritten each time you start Avidemux, so please don't restart the application after a crash, copy the log first.

Have you zipped it?

edit: if it is too large even when ZIP-compressed, please upload it to WeTransfer, Mega, Dropbox or Google Drive.


In case of difficulties with CleanTalk please send info as PM.


Here is the log you asked for

Thank you.

The crash happens at frame 88227 counting from zero, time 00:47:08 for "Rise of Empires  Ottoman S01E03 Into The Golden Horn.ts".

Could you please check whether the crash at this particular frame is reproducible? Please load the file, then do Ctrl+T and seek to time a few seconds before (e.g. to 00:47:00), then advance keyframe by keyframe until you reach 00:47:08,000.

If the crash is reproducible, it would be great if you could provide the last ~1 GiB of the file, cut with a tool equivalent to dd or tail on Linux, as a sample.

Independently from reproducibility, please disable post-processing in Avidemux preferences completely and report back whether it makes any difference (post-processing defaults to disabled in recent nightlies, but they don't change settings inherited from older versions).
