Avidemux3 (aka avidemux 2.6.0): Testers please

Hi
I’ve built the newest version in my packman home repository, at present
it’s only for x86_64 (there is a pmbs issue with the x86 scheduler).

If folks want to try it out it’s here for 12.1, 12.2 and tumbleweed;
http://pmbs.links2linux.org/download/home:/malcolmlewis/

If it all looks ok, will push into the main packman repository.

I can’t test as I’m on x86 but it’s good to see progress. :slight_smile:

Currently installing 12.2 64bit KDE, will be happy to help.

I’ve used avidemux a couple of times in the past.

Hi
Scheduler restarted and x86 builds are there :wink:

Testing this now and all seems pretty good so far.
I’ve been waiting a while for this to become available for Opensuse so thank you :).

Couple of questions . . .

Why Avidemux 3? This could potentially cause confusion with people believing it is a newer version than it actually is (2.6.xx).
When moved into Packman will you still keep 2.5.xx in place there? As I understand it, they can live together side by side quite happily and there are still some things 2.5.xx does better than 2.6

One issue I have (and it may not be related to your compiled version) is that there is more than one listing for mpeg4 AVC

http://img835.imageshack.us/img835/4224/avidemux2.jpg](http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/835/avidemux2.jpg/)

the second listing from what I can make out just appears to be a dud entry that does nothing.

Are you responsible for maintaining Avidemux in Packman? If so, can I ask what happened to AC3 Aften in both versions? Is this no longer available in Linux versions of avidemux?

It needs to be renamed so it can co-exist with the 2.5.x version and
the binaries as compiled are called avidemux3* (maybe a 3.x.x release
is not far away?) hence calling the package that name. If it’s left the
same and submitted it will overwrite the old version.

One issue I have (and it may not be related to your compiled version)
is that there is more than one listing for mpeg4 AVC

‘[image: ImageShack - Best place for all of your image hosting and image sharing needs]’
(ImageShack - avidemux2.jpeg)

Interesting will have to have a dig into it.

No, but that may change, there are but a few people keeping up with
things, I maintain a few already on packman and there are still a few
things needed in the package (language files aren’t packaging), and
work out building without bootstrapping the devel files.

given this a good run for the past week or so now. Seems pretty stable and working quite well. A little slower at encoding than 2.5.xx but I think this is also the case in the windows version.

Hello again, nice work. :slight_smile: I tried your x86 Tumbleweed build for avidemux3_qt4 and it works great for a few rips from movies so far. It seems better than the version I manually compiled. The only thing is when I first tried to install ‘avidemux3-qt-2.6.0-2.2.i586.rpm’ it complained of some missing dependencies until I also installed ‘avidemux3-2.6.0-2.2.i586.rpm’ first. This may be expected behavior (it can’t pull in the other package automatically since it is not in the regular tree) but I thought I should mention it just in case the package is supposed to be independent of the other.

Hi
Thanks for the feedback, it is strange as the qt package does have a
requires on the main package… I need to investigate :slight_smile:

Just wanted to mention I notice 2.6.1 (experimental branch) is out with a lot of bug fixes including for memory leaks.

Avidemux - News

One problem I have when converting avi to mpeg with this, all the time it only can convert 50% of the file.
I will try malcolm version when the machine I am using for it can connect to the net.

As for now I am using kino converting up to more than a hundred short avi taken from a cam into one mpeg file
then use bonbono to make a dvd with out a problem

I tried malcolm’s version and still, I can’t get past 2gb converting avi to mpeg
from multiple small avi files into one big mpeg file. It looks to me that every attempt
I get only 50+% of the total file to be converted.

Hi Malcom,

If you update your packages to 2.6.1 I will gladly test them on openSUSE 12.2 x86_64.
I have a variety of source files, including DV and h264 TS, as well as a range of devices to encode for and play with.

Best

Hi
I’ve updated locally to 2.6.1, pmbs is very busy at present after an
outage, so it might be a few days before the updated packages succeed at
uploading/building. Keep an eye out on my test repo :wink:

there is a new version I am seeing in your repo but it is 2.6.0-4.2
It has a build date of 02 March 2013

Is this the new version?

IF I try to update from 2.6.0-4.1 I am getting a conflict

nothing provides libx264.so.129()(64bit) needed by avidemux 3-2.6.0-4.2.x86_64

This has resolved itself as libx264.so.129 is now in packman

I’d still like to know though if avidemux 2.6.0-4.2 is in fact what you referred to previously as 2.6.1, or if there is still a newer version on its way???

Hi
It’s a newer version 2.6.1, unfortunately I can’t upload the packages
to the Packman Build Service instance, there are issues with it at
present (well for me anyway) so I’ve asked on IRC and will wait for a
reply and then head to the mailing list…

How are things going with getting this updated on the packman build service, or perhaps moved to the main packman repository?

I see avidemux is now up to version 2.6.3

Hi
Finally got it to upload…
http://pmbs.links2linux.org/package/show?package=avidemux3&project=home%3Amalcolmlewis

2.6.3 should be there soon…
