avidemux compile or I just wanted to rotate some video…

Written by James McDonald

Ubuntu 9.10… avidemux is crashing everytime I try to run the rotate filter with a partial frame range.

So I’m trying to compile it from source to see if I can get it running.

What they don’t tell you in the online install instructions is you have to compile both the application…

apt-get build-dep avidemux
cd /home/jimmy/avidemux/avidemux_2.5.1
mkdir build
cd build
cmake ..
sudo make install

and you also have to compile the plugins separately as-well…

cd /home/jimmy/avidemux/avidemux_2.5.1/plugins
cmake -DAVIDEMUX_SOURCE_DIR=/home/jimmy/avidemux/avidemux_2.5.1  -DAVIDEMUX_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr/local -DAVIDEMUX_CORECONFIG_DIR=/home/jimmy/avidemux/avidemux_2.5.1/build/config/ ..
sudo make install

And after all the above I still get a crash when trying to rotate a partial segment of video:

Text of crash:

In fact with my compiled version I can get it to crash more frequently now… Excellent!

A rather long and painful process when all I wanted to do was rotate some video…

This is going to be the year of Linux on the desktop. No this is the year of Linux on the desktop. No this is…

Ubuntu… sexy but unstable. Maybe it’s time to have a gander at Fedora 12… Hopefully they have the Intel Video driver sorted for this release.
