Well, avidemux-2.6.0-1.fc17.x86_64 is hopelessly broken. I have installed V188.8.131.52 on both Windows and Linux and the timeline crashes at some point while editing videos.
I downgraded the windows version to V2.5.6 and that one works perfectly. Now I'm trying to downgrade the Fedora version and I can't figure it out. I downloaded the source code but the README file is empty and cmake generates 5 pages of errors.
I then tried to use yum downgrade:
yum downgrade avidemux avidemux-libs avidemux-qt avidemux-gui --skip-broken
# Which produces this hideous output:

Not sure what to do now....How do I downgrade to a working earlier version of avidemux?
