I'm trying to cut commercials out of a recording and get this error message:

The size of the video changes at frame 36696 from 1920x1080 to 1280x720. This is unsupported and will result in a crash.
Proceed nevertheless?
This warning won't be shown again for this video.

When I try to edit out video segments it crashes.

How can I handle this? I am trying to cut out commercials but still keep closed captions.

I'm running 2.7.8.


The only option is to run Avidemux from the Terminal where it prints the offset of each resolution switch, write down all offsets, then split the original transport stream file into sections with matching video dimensions at exactly those offsets using e.g. Unix command-line tools like dd, head or tail, then load/append matching fragments in Avidemux.

2.7.8 is an unsupported old release, please update to 2.8.0.
