Shutdown when complete option
« on: June 14, 2019, 02:35:27 PM »
I hope I am posting this in the right place and will gladly repost in another section if needed. I was just wondering about the possibilty of adding a shutdown when complete option and also, is there a way to donate. I think it is only fair for us to donate to the person that went to the trouble and major effort to code this app.

Regarding the "shutdown when done" option, it was hidden a while ago as the implementation for Windows (avidemux_core/ADM_core/src/ADM_win32.cpp:133) didn't work with UAC i.e. for all Windows versions starting with Vista while the implementation for Linux required Avidemux to be run as root.

I can't speak in the name of the author of Avidemux regarding donations, but my impression is that submitting patches is by far the most efficient way to support development.

Including the shutdown when finished option is highly useful, it's energy and time saving. It's the main reason why I prefer using Virtualdub when I have many videos to encode.
