I compiled Avidemux using the gitclone source. In the "about" windows here is what I read : "Avidemux 2.7.3 (190904_237f5da0ad9-fflibs 4.1.3).
On the other hand, I also use the Appimage. in the "about" windows it says : "Avidemux 2.7.4 - Release".
I thought the gitclone was always the newest version.
Can you tell me which one I shoud use ?
Thank you.


Can it be that your git clone follows the old ffmpeg4 branch which was merged back into master long time ago? You need just to run

git checkout master
git submodule update --init --recursive

once. When updating the repo later, you will need to execute

git pull --recurse

due to translations being now a submodule, hosted in a different repository.


I typed the 2 lines after git cloning.
Now the "About" windows shows : "Avidemux 2.7.4 (190907_09d1c9e48ec-fflibs 4.1.4).
Thank you very much for your help.
