I had stayed away from this application for a while due mainly to audio sync problems. I had started using Video to Video which does the job very well so far as my requirements go. Unfortunately it has not been updated to decode x265 codec.

Recently I came across an x265 video that had a lot of useless real estate like a wall paper and the actual video content was limited to central portion. It was very irritating to watch. So remembering Avidemux's past capability of cropping the video I decided to look for the the latest version and see if it would help.

I was pleasantly surprised. I was able to decode the x265 codec, crop out the wasted area, use msharpen filter, increase the volume level by 2.0 db, and encode with x264 codec required for my 6 year old PhantomTek media player. The result in my opinion was excellent.

What I would really like to see added to the GUI is capability or minimising it to tray while the process is going on AND ability to easily set defaults upon startup. If these twi features are added I would rate it 10. Another thing I observed is that the sometimes the tray icon stops updating the progress % when hovering with mouse. This might be due to Windows behaviour, I am not sure. Overall an excellent application. BTW it is much faster, too.

Hi last 2 Nightly updates (AviDemux 2.6.12 Nigthly 160723 64-bit) CRASH. Thanks!:)

Jul 23, 2016 Version: 2.6.12 Nigthly 160723 OS: Vista 64-bit Ease: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 10/10

This latest beta still can't read and index mpeg2 VOBs or some mpeg-ps/ts. I still have to rip DVDs and Tivo downloads with 2.5.6.

Feb 15, 2016 Version: 2.6.11b160215 32-bit OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease: 7/10 Functionality: 9/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 9/10

Just like the beta releases of 2.6.11 (64 bit), the final release also has a problem not installing required .DLL files and won't run. Going back to 2.6.8.

Feb 7, 2016 Version: 2.6.11 - 64bit OS: Windows 8 64-bit Ease: 5/10 Functionality: 5/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 5/10

Love the program but the last two betas (possibly more) are broken on Windows with error: The program can't start because Qt5OpenGL.dll is missing from your computer. Would have posted this on their forum but registration is not open. Stupid.
