Which version is it ?
« on: September 07, 2019, 05:49:47 PM »
Hello,
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

Code: [Select]
git checkout master
git submodule update --init --recursive

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

Code: [Select]
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.
