Download Avidemux Portable 2.5.5 Dev Test 1 [11MB download / 36MB installed]
2.5.5 Dev Test 1 (2010-09-22):
- Avidemux has been updated to 2.5.5.
- Converted to PAL 2.1.1 (f4f69418c925).
- MRUs still not portable.
- Language switching should now work with and without the menu. If you need to set it manually, use Data\settings\AvidemuxPortableSettings.ini and edit Language=(Glibc locale).
2.5.3 Dev Test 1 (2010-05-28):
- Avidemux has been updated to 2.5.3.
A few things...
- Projects and jobs are now portable (see help) although FindNext seems to be going round twice for jobs. To test: save a couple of jobs and uncomment line 228. Then comment out line 229 to see it work properly (?)
- MRUs still not portable (check the config file).
- I can't see where to download the extra languages. Any ideas?
- AppCompactor didn't seem to want to compress any of the files this time round (?)
2.5.1 Dev Test 1 (2009-08-21):
- Qt version.
I have left AVSProxy in there. I haven't used it so it's NOT TESTED. It does leave the registry key
HKCUwhich the launcher backs up and saves if it's created. By the look of it, I'm assuming it will contain paths so the drive letter will be adjusted in the reg file.
- UPX'ed Avidemux directory (default settings).
- MRU list is still stored in a binary config file which the launcher can't write to.
2.4.4 Dev Test 1 (2009-05-28): Initial release
- Qt version.
- English only, no command line interface, no avsproxy.
- Paths won't follow drive letter as prefs stored in binary config file (can't read/write with text replace).
- No UPX yet.
Tested with: XP SP3 (Admin)
I tried the app. I don't know if the original software's the same, but it seemed to have a hard time saving projects. i kept getting a message "error 0(no error)".
I can save them OK here. It comes a bit unstuck if the drive letter changes (see point three above) so not quite as portable as it could be Something to do with that perhaps?
Sweet! I'll give this a try!
Thanks Prapper = )
I compressed the avidemux directory with appcompactor.
The program appears to still function ok. The installed size came down to less tham 10 Mb. Unfortunately it is not suitable for my needs.
Sorry to hear you can't use it, but thanks for testing, I'll give the compression a go on the next release (if there is one!)
I suppose we are just waiting for the famous horusofoz regshot now...
Here you go Prapper and thanks for picking this up = )
In Da Club indeed
if you like, I'll give you a mirror on my googlecode site
Will test under wine and Win7 and get back to you.
Lead, Follow, or get out of the way.
OK, thanks, I'll compress it, test it and update to 0.91. Dev test 2 up soon. Shame about that config file though... again
Just checking if your maintaininf this as Avidemux has been updated to 2.5.1
Yeah, I can still update it.
Looks like somebody beat me to it though...
See release notes for changes.
Works on XP SP3
Great! Did you try the other one that was posted?
No offence to dpaehl but I really don't like Rapidshare. I guess I'll give it a go
Yeah, I bottled it too
Uses Xenocode. Definite No Go
Right. Thanks for the info.
Don't forget to post an update note to the test releases table
Oh yeah, forgot about that. Thanks for reminding me. Done!
I've tried to upx the dll/exe-files myself (using both "--best --compress-icons=0" and defaults) but get errors after launching, mostly "Entry point not found" errors. After running "upx -d " I've got several "CantUnpackException: pointer out of range; take care!" errors.
How did you manage to compress the files?
As far as I remember, I just sent the Avidemux directory to AppCompactor with the default settings, as it says in the release notes. I don't think I've ever used any of the other compression methods to be honest, as I never compress anything if it's only for my own use. Sorry not to be more helpful.
I've just looked at the source code of AppCompactor. It does indeed a decompression test and if this fails, it does leave the original file intact. So I've written a similar 4nt-script and stole the logic shamelessly off AppCompactor
This works great you should think about the official release.
Just a note that 2.5.3 was released on 2010-05-17
Thanks for the bump
See release notes for changes.
2011-12-31: 2.5.6. Y-1 Before End of the world
I'm going through the Test Release page, and noted there's an update for the base app available: 2.6.0
Ther's a new version 2.6.1 that solve problems of crash.
I'm using it and looks ok.
I hope to see it soon in the list of Music & Video portableapps!
If anyone feels like taking this over, feel free.
I've decided to pick this up, and have contacted the Avidemux folks for clarification on a couple items, but should have something up soon.
