Any plans to support ARM for the next release?

Avidemux runs natively on ARM/Linux, albeit with limitations due to assembly in Avidemux itself (not in bundled libraries) being x86-only. There are no official builds, that's all. However, it is very uncertain whether any development will happen targeting ARM/macOS.

Would love to see ARM support on the Mac.
I tried to compile it but failed, I've replaced the built in ffmpeg with the one bundled with Homebrew, and then figured out how to use Homebrew's libav, but then had some more issues with the build using x86 instead of ARM (seems to be hardcoded somewhere) - and gave up on it, was too time consuming.

What was the exact error message? Did you change MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET, currently hardcoded in bootStrapOsx_Catalina.bash to Catalina (10.15) to the default value as reported by

xcrun --sdk macosx --show-sdk-version?

I really wonder how you accomplished that as Avidemux relies on a patched version to access some useful private functions.
