Avidemux is an awesome program, it would be absolutely awesome if the developers would add WebM (or, well, VP8 / VP9) encoding.
ffmpeg can already to that so it should be able to implement this feature by using the open source code from the ffmpeg program.
There are many people uploading videos to Wikipedia, it would be really useful for them to be able to convert their .mp4 videos they get from their smarphones into .webm videos

Please implement this feature!
Thanks in advance

FFmpeg uses just libvpx (which is an external library) to encode in VP9. It has its own internal decoder implementation, which is used by Avidemux.

The best way to add VP9 encoding capability to Avidemux is to submit a patch implementing a libvpx video encoder plugin.
