Avidemux 2.7.6 - job list always empty (can't do batch conversion)

Hi.

The component that handle batch jobs "avidemux_jobs.exe" always show empty, even if I added those jobs in tje job list in main aplication. I.e not working.

Are there some workarounds for this?

Thanks in advance

Try this

Edit the AvidemuxPortable.ini file within AvidemuxPortable\App\AppInfo\Launcher and change it to:

[Launch]
ProgramExecutable=Avidemux32\avidemux_portable.exe
ProgramExecutable64=Avidemux64\avidemux_portable.exe
DirectoryMoveOK=yes
SupportsUNC=yes
WaitForEXE1=avidemux_jobs.exe
WaitForEXE2=avidemux_cli.exe

[QtKeysCleanup]
1=Qt\filedialog

[DirectoriesMove]
settings_app=%FullAppDir%\settings

[FileWrite1]
Type=Replace
File=%PAL:DataDir%\settings_app\config2
Find=%PAL:LastDrive%%PAL:LastPackagePartialDir:EscapedForwardSlash%\
Replace=%PAL:Drive%%PAL:PackagePartialDir:EscapedForwardSlash%\

[FileWrite2]
Type=Replace
File=%PAL:DataDir%\settings_app\config2
Find=%PAL:LastPortableAppsBaseDir:EscapedForwardSlash%\
Replace=%PAL:PortableAppsBaseDir:EscapedForwardSlash%\

[FileWrite3]
Type=Replace
File=%PAL:DataDir%\settings_app\config2
Find=%PAL:LastDrive%\/
Replace=%PAL:Drive%\/

This might allow you to do jobs from the list in the main application

Job list still empty

Thanks for the effort, but when I run "\PortableApps\AvidemuxPortable\App\Avidemux64\avidemux_jobs.exe" then th list are still empty.
I've copy and pasted the text to the AvidemuxPortable.ini file accordingly.

As for a simple test (hoping to resolve or find bump into a workaround), I also to execute the "\Avidemux32\avidemux_jobs.exe" file, but it did not load. No error, no visual at all.

If we get this to work, the is also the question if the menu can be manipulated so it also includes a link to the avidemux_jobs.exe file.

Can't run directly

You can't run it directly. Only from the main gui. Any time you run any exe directly within the app directory you're breaking out of portablization.

Ok thanks.

There are probably obvious, but I cannot figure out how.

No entry to open up jobs function on main gui.

Maybe add a launcher for this exe as the OpenOffice does will fix this problem?
