Written by Michael Larabel in Multimedia on 28 December 2021 at 05:25 AM EST. 1 Comment
While not nearly as featureful as say OpenShot or Kdenlive, Avidemux is an open-source video editor that is simple to use and has been around for a long time. Avidemux 2.8 is now available as the latest feature release.

Avidemux 2.8 features a variety of improvements for this non-linear open-source video editor. Among the many changes with Avidemux 2.8 are:

- Support for converting HDR vide to SDR with tone mapping.

- Support for decoding TrueHD audio tracks.

- Support for decoding WMA9 lossless.

- Restoring the FFV1 encoder.

- During video playback, navigation is now possible via keys or dragging the navigation slider.

- Support for temporarily disabling filters via the video filter manager.

- Easier jumping around between cut points on the navigation slider.

- Improved PulseAudio integration to allow for an in-application volume control.

- Fixing occasional UI unresponsiveness during video playback.

Downloads and more details on the Avidemux 2.8 video editor can be found via the project's SourceForge site.
