Avidemux apps
« on: January 08, 2019, 10:36:55 PM »
I have been happily downloading the app versions  for quite a while. The most recent is 164. Checked today but only the table headers now appear but no apps. I hope normal listing will reappear as this is a very useful way of using Avidemux. My system is Ubuntu 18.4.

Best wishes and Thanks.

You could easily help yourself by building Avidemux from source. This is pretty trivial on Ubuntu and in case you don't need the Jobs GUI (if you were happy with appImages, you didn't need it) you even don't need to install Avidemux. I would only recommend to checkout the ffmpeg4x branch instead of master as all the latest and greatest fixes go into this branch for now.

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get purge "avidemux*"
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install git
git clone
cd avidemux2
git checkout ffmpeg4x
bash createDebFromSourceUbuntu.bash --deps-only
bash bootStrap.bash --rebuild

Copy to a directory in your $PATH, make it executable and rename it as you like.

If you have a recent NVIDIA graphics card in your PC and use their closed-source graphics driver, you might want to install nv-codec-headers before executing bootStrap.bash to enable hardware accelerated H.264 and HEVC encoders in Avidemux.
