Avidemux 2.6.4 doesn't allow dropping files
« on: August 12, 2013, 07:01:12 PM »
Well, partially it does. In the 2.5 versions it was entirely possible to drop files onto Avidemux and Avidemux would happily open them (and crash afterwards, which has been fixed, hopefully).

Now in 2.6.4, it doesn't accept dropping files on it. You have to drop 'em onto the titlebar. I see no reason for this limitation, So I'll go ahead and assume this was done my mistake. Can it be fixed please?

Using Windows 7 x64, Avidemux 32-bits version (I would use the x64 version if it existed - and I do know some other 32-bits programs used to have a similar issue... years ago)

Actually it does (but you sometimes have to wait a little).

"a little" doesn't sound like more than a few seconds to me... The program certainly isn't burning any cpu cycles to speak of, so I assume it's not doing anything that causes file drops to get enabled again.

Strangely though, I did find that dropping a file is always accepted when the program first starts, but gets disabled after having opened and closed a file by hitting ctrl+w (not closing the program, of course).

Actually file drops are accepted ONLY on the title bar and the separator bars (the ones that appear in Windows XP but not in Windows 7, which is a separate issue).

Works fine for me on widows 7 64 bit.
File can be dropped anywhere within the dialog boundaries.
Closing a video (ctrl-w) and loading another by dropping is working fine also.

This problems looks like it only happens in the 32-bits version on Windows XP at least. On the x64 version in Windows, it does indeed work.
