I don't really care about this, but I do use it occasionally to cut apart videos.
Quite straightforward to use for simple video editing and appending. It took me almost no time to learn.
Good for transcoding.

On the left, choose these from the dropdown boxes:
- video: MPEG-4 avc
- audio: AAC (Faac)
Playing the video, the properties say:

Shit, it can't read/edit most movies which MPlayer can play just fine. Bah!
- I might try kino, but it takes 25 minutes to import a video, and its crop function is fucking stupid. I can't even figure it out.
- Why in the hell can't it save over top of my currently-editing file? That sucks.. it should fake it.
It can't remember the current working directory, it keeps defaulting to
2009-01-18 - 2.4.1 ∞
- Best to not use it, because it makes lots of assumptions on the normal dialogues.
When opening the videos I've worked with so far, it needs to take a bit of time to process them. There should be an option to make it not ask me about that, and just do it right away if I wish.
- I might have found a preference for this. I'm not sure.
- When saving something I chopped up, it asked me for a "q factor" which makes no sense to me.
- Cannot use the bar to hop around while it's playing. You have to stop it to use it. Fail.
- How come the player is awesome in avidemux, but when playing it normally gMPlayer has to "rebuild" the picture from mottled blobs?
Cannot double or fullscreen the player.
