Avidemux required a WinFF script first to make it work properly.
See this thread:

Does anyone know if this release fixes the issue that makes Cresho's WinFF file necessary?
Thanks.

Sorry. I don't know the answer to your question. Perhaps some of our members using it with Windows and Sanyo produced videos will know the answer.

I'm running Avidemux under SimplyMEPIS 8.0 (a very nice Linux distro using a Debian Lenny core) since I prefer digiKam for image management, which runs quite well on this Linux distribution. But, I don't do very much with Video.

Thanks for the tip about the address - that explains a lot of problems I've been having...

I use Windows XP and have found avidemux is the best video tool for my needs. I've never seen that Linux distro - it looks slick.
Cheers

Hey jimC, nice to see a fellow linux user. I just finished checking out the latest kde4. It is very impressive. I was using kdenlive, gwenview, and the new plasma interface. Kwin is vastly improved as well.

mtmfc, I did an update and played around with the latest avidemux. Same problem so the steps given still apply. I wish it fixed but I have a feeling the problem is related to the ffmpeg versions being used.

Well thats unfortunate. Thanks for checking though!
I see 2.5 beta is available too - I wonder if that sorts it out?

My wife and I both use Mepis. I've got SimplyMepis 7.0 installed on her laptop (until I can get time to install Mepis 8.0), and I'm running SimplyMepis 8.0 (upgraded along the way from a beta 2 install) on my primary desktop (along with Windows Vista and a few other Linux distros in separate partitions).

Give it a try if you want to see how it works. It can run from a CD. You just download the .iso file, burn it to CD and boot into it. It will be very slow running from CD. But, if you like it, just install it to your hard drive and it will run quite nicely. You can easily shrink your Windows NTFS partition(s) and make room for Linux partitions using the included Partition Manager (Gparted), and Mepis will install a boot manager by default so that you can pick the desired operating system to boot into (Windows, Mepis, etc.) in a dual boot configuration.

See this community developed online user guide for more info on how to download and install Mepis (this user guide is also on the Mepis CD with an icon for it on the desktop).

I tried KDE 4.1.3 (as packaged in Suse 11.1, which I downloaded and installed to get a better look at the latest KDE progress). I still wasn't that impressed with it. I haven't tried KDE 4.2 yet.

SimplyMEPIS 8.0 uses KDE 3.5.10

There is a remaster of the Mepis 8.0 release that uses KDE 4.2 (remastered by Danum, an active member in the Mepis community). But, this remaster is based on one of the Mepis 8.0 release candidates versus final release (which uses a newer kernel, lots of updates from Debian Lenny before it's release and more). You'll find torrents for this KDE 4.2 remaster in the "Unofficial Community Editions" section on this page:

http://www.mepiscommunity.org/en/node/54

Screen captures (see film strip bar at bottom for more). Some may be of the KDE 4.1.x remasters.

http://mepislovers.org/forums/vbimgh...&imgid=426

As soon as a KDE 4.2 remaster using Mepis 8.0 Final comes out, I'll probably download it and give it a spin (probably easier than trying to install KDE 4.2 from Debian Experimental and sorting out issues with it).
