Centos 6/RHEL install Avidemux

Avidemux is a very popular cross platform video editing program, ideal for all kinds of video file conversions, appending, cropping, cutting etc.

It is notoriously difficult to build from source and unless you are the developer with easy access to all the dependencies required to build it then it makes sense to find an rpm version to suit.

Finding an good installable version has proved a little elusive for Centos 6/RHEL because of its huge dependency requirement but I finally managed to track one down fom the naulinux-school repo.

To install it first make a naulinux-school repo file

$ sudo vi /etc/yum.repos.d/naulinux-school.repo

See vi and vim commands.

Enter into the file

[naulinux-school]
name=NauLinux School
baseurl=http://downloads.naulinux.ru/pub/NauLinux/6.2/$basearch/sites/School/RPMS/
enabled=0
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=http://downloads.naulinux.ru/pub/NauLinux/RPM-GPG-KEY-linux-ink

Save the file (set disabled)

$ sudo yum -y --enablerepo=naulinux-school install avidemux

Run it with

$ avidemux

Fluxbox users can put in the /home/<user_name>/.fluxbox/keys file

Mod1 a : ExecCommand avidemux

To run it with 'Alt a'

See Fluxbox key bindings for more.

  1. The above installs the avidemux 2.5 branch.

    For the newer 2.6 branch see: http://www.avidemux.org/smf/index.php?topic=10702.15
