Apparently avidemux is not supported in Ubuntu beyond Trusty (14.04) What would be a good replacement for it in later versions like 16.04 LTS or more recent?

I am actually looking for a program to convert raw digital video files to various formats: mp4, xvid, ogg, mp4 ... Preferably a (cli) program that I can use in a script.

  • What did you use avidemux for? A good replacement would be something that does the same things. What are those things?

Depending on what you were using Avidemux to do you might be able to get away with HandBrake for transcoding videos. There is also a command-line version of HandBrake named handbrake-cli. Otherwise install Kdendlive for working with raw video footage and other video editor functions. To install all three applications open the terminal and type:

sudo apt install handbrake-cli handbrake kdenlive
