Bug Description

Source package: avidemux 1:2.5.0-0.0ubuntu2
Release: 9.10 Karmic

Starting with version 2.5.0, audio and video encoders (xvid, h264), video filters and so on are now plugins, and Avidemux has to be built in two steps: first the application itself and then the plugins. Have a look at


for reference.

It appears that no plugins were packaged, so Avidemux in Karmic cannot convert sound, cannot convert into xvid and h264, cannot adjust the picture using filters etc. A whole lot of functionality is lost, so we're looking at a severe regression compared to 2.4.4.

I have 1:2.5.1+repack-0ubuntu2.1 in Ubuntu 9.10 and am still experiencing this problem. And help/plugins shows the plugins, so that's not the problem.

Oh, sorry, I see that the fix was in a later version. Is this not going to be updated in Karmic though?
