Avidemux 2.7.8 has been released! How to install on Ubuntu 20.04

The free open source Avidemux Video Editor 2.7.8 has been released with many new features. Here’s how to install it on Ubuntu via PPA:

The new release features many new video filters. A dedicated MOV multiplexer can be used to replace the MOV multiplexer mode within the MP4 multiplexer. If both the input and output videos are stored in a Matroska / WebM container, a subset of the color information related to HDR support is kept in copy mode.

The MPEG-TS demultiplexer indexer now detects changes in the resolution of MPEG-2 and H.264 streams.

The YUV type of the lossless UtVideo codec is supported via the bundled FFmpeg library. Multithreaded video decoding is now available in bundled FFmpeg.

Other changes are as follows:

  • Support for uncompressed 24-bit audio.
  • 7.1 Limited support for channel layouts.
  • Support for decoding and streaming copies of XLL substreams on DTS audio tracks.
  • When you resume playback, the audio properties will be updated.
  • Option to keep their IDs instead of automatically exchanging markers A and B
  • Maximum resolution support increased to 8192×8192
  • FFmpeg bundle updated to 4.2.4
  • MP4 multiplexers now accept MPEG-1 and MPEG-2
