2.5.4 doesn't start
« on: September 23, 2011, 01:33:05 PM »
So I downloaded a copy of Avidemux 2.5.4 for Mac OSX from this site, and it doesn't start. I put the file into my applications folder and when I try to start it I get a crash report. It says that 'Avidemux has quit unexpectedly. Click relaunch to launch the app again.' But clicking relaunch gives me the same message. I'm running an Intel core MacBook with OSX 10.5.8. Any thoughts or solutions?  :(

read the topic in evidence by Mean.
you must delete two files inside avidemux.app

Thanks for the quick reply but it didn't work. I tried removing the files and nothing. Just doesn't open. It's not that I just can't merge files, I can't even get the program to work. Anyone else?

This workaround is for 10.7 (MacOS X Lion) and cannot be applied to 2.5.4 sucessfully. On 10.5. I'm using Avidemux 2.5.2.

You may try MPEG Streamclip (GUI for cutting files is worse, but handling of MPEG-4 AVC files is much better).

See the crashlog in Applications > Utility > Console searching for avidemux2, post details or send me a PM.

Only the installation of Avidemux using Homebrew, if you really wanna bother with that. For most user it's much easier to use MPEG Streamclip or QuickTime Pro on Mac OS X.

Thanks for the suggestions. I'm not versed in coding so it looks like installing homebrew is out.
Mpeg streamclip was hopeful but missing the unique functionality that is available in avidemux.
In Particular, the Append function, frame by frame toggle buttons, i-frame and p-frame recognition.
Any suggestions for other applications with those functions would greatly help.

It's done the Quicktime way:
(1) Select what you wanna copy with cmd + A (whole movie) or part of it (use the I and O key to determine In and Out) and press cmd + C (Copy).
(2) Move playhead where you wanna append your selection (step 1) and press Cmd + V (Paste).

frame by frame toggle buttons
There are no buttons, but arrow left and arrow right key is the way it works (like in Avidemux).

Quote
i-frame and p-frame recognition.
What P frames are concerned you're right. Only I frames (keyframes) are really relevant (especially what h.264 is concerned), use arrow down and arrow up key to navigate from keyframe to keyframe (like in Avidemux).

Thanks for the clarification.
However I am trying to delete i-frames exactly like the video link below. to create the desired pixel disruption.

And Avidemux 2.5.2 does not do the job for you? It runs on 10.5.

2.5.2  would absolutely do the trick!
I can not get it to run.
It crashes immediately when I open it and i've tried downloading every version suggested.
If I showed you the messages in my utility console and "problem details" when it prompts the "problem report"
Will that clarify anything?

I will have a look on my Lion system (installed on a old MacBook Pro at home). Logs are not needed.
