I'm a bit confused now. Fabian noticed that Fedora's avidemux 2.5.3
package already did unbundle ffmpeg. Is this untrue? Or did I
misunderstand you two?
No, I just noticed that *some* libraries are unbundled and that the
package Build-Depends on ffmpeg-dev, whereas I have not found any
effort to unbundle ffmpeg itself and use the system libraries instead.
I found that perplexing and that's the very reason why I contacted
Richard in the first place.
We would be happy to share the work and take your patches for using
the system libraries for the Debian package. Besides, have you by
chance already asked upstream to comment on your patches? If yes, what
was the response?
For the four libraries I mentioned in my initial mail, these are
mostly trivial patches which change around three lines each.
That's great to hear! Maybe we (i.e., in Debian) should, directly look
at packaging the 2.6 development branch.
If this drops (or at least make it possible to drop) the patches
against ffmpeg, definitely!
Yes, that would probably be helpful for preparing the Debian package.
Do you use some VCS for your packaging work? In case you are
interested in our current packaging branch, it is at
Let's work together on this (i.e. the unbundling of ffmpeg from
avidemux and packaging of the newest avidemux version for which this
is actually possible), co-operations with Fedora have always turned
out satisfactory in the past - at least this is my personal perception. ;)
