    Default Improve old film sound

    I have discovered some great old British films (1940 -1960) on Youtube. But most of them seem to suffer from bad soundtracks. Is there any filtering software that can reduce distortion and improve dynamic range?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi
    Ever thought of using tab completion (type some text, press tab and it will give you possible names...);

    Code:
    avidem<press tab>
    Just because a package is name XYZ, that the binaries to run are called XYZ.... (avidemux2_cl, avidemux2_gtk etc)

    avidemux is a programm to cut and edit video.
    audacity is a programm to edit and cut audio.

    PS:
    if you are using plasma/KDE you should install the QT version of avidemux: avidemux3-qt and avidemux3-qt-lang besides avidemux3.

    Thanks for the speedy response. I was not aware of the <TAB> option. So I tried it and it responded with...

    Code:
     :~> avidemux2_
    ...and I pressed the <ENTER> key, and the response was...

    Code:
      :~> avidemux2_If 'avidemux2_' is not a typo you can use command-not-found to lookup the package that contains it, like this:
        cnf avidemux2_
    ion@localhost:~>
    ...and following its instruction I went on...

    Code:
     ion@localhost:~> cnf avidemux2: command not found                           
    ion@localhost:~>
    ...as indeed zypper shows no avidemux2 of any extension being available for installation. See earlier post. I'm confused.

    I'm not using KDE. Using XFCE. Anyway I followed your suggestion and the response was...

    Code:
       # zypper in avidemux3 avidemux3-qt
    Loading repository data...
    Reading installed packages...
    Package 'avidemux3-qt' not found.
    There is an avidemux3-qt5 showing in zypper se. So I zyppered avidemux3 and avidemux3-qt5. Still no entry under Menu.

    Result...

    Code:
     ion@localhost:~> avidemux3
    If 'avidemux3' is not a typo you can use command-not-found to lookup the package that contains it, like this:
        cnf avidemux3
    ion@localhost:~> avidemux3-qt5
    If 'avidemux3-qt5' is not a typo you can use command-not-found to lookup the package that contains it, like this:
        cnf avidemux3-qt5

    Code:
    stephan@linux64:~> avidemux3_
    avidemux3_jobs_qt5  avidemux3_qt5
    The bash expands avid (TAB) to avidemu3_ because there are 2 programms with this name.
    So you haveto type in the next column....
    Or press TAB twice(as a double-klick) to see the commands above.

    The TAB command is named bash completions, f. e.:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Command-line_completion

    But you have to install it
    Code:
    i  | bash-completion                   | Paket | 2.7-lp152.5.3                                   | noarch | OSS
    Many package have also a completion package, search for it......

    Thats besides your problem....

    Final word. From page https://software.opensuse.org/package/avidemux

    "There is no official package available for openSUSE Leap 15.2"

    I think that's sufficient to close this thread. Had I gone there first I could have saved us all a lot of wasted time. Thanks for trying.

    It's in packman, named avidemux3. It installs and runs fine.
