How to load/start Avidemux with customized, second settings?
« on: August 22, 2019, 06:21:12 PM »
Ok I could adjust Avidemux settings and save them as default settings.

But what if I want to switch occasionally between various, different settings?
If I don't want the default settings I always have to adjust them manually.

This is unhandy and uncomfortable.

Is there a way to save the current settings as e.g. "mysettings123.dat" profile file and load this (non-default) profile file on demand?

Or even better start Avidemux from cmdline and pass the customized settings file similar to

avidemux.exe -loadsettings "mysettings123.dat"

Is this somehow possible?

Thank you
Peter

Move the corresponding defaultSetting.py file from the avidemux profile directory (%appData%\avidemux) into the subdirectory named "custom" and rename it to your liking while keeping the .py extension. This script should be listed after restart of Avidemux in the "Cusom" menu. Select it to apply the configuration.
