Description of problem:
There is a difference between indexing with 2.7 and the new 2.8 version. The version 2.7 comming with MGA8 cannot read index-files from 2.8, this is normal. But 2.8 (comming with cauldron) cannot raed the old index-files, that's awfull.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Cut a *mp4 movie first with 2.7 and then try to fullfill your work with the new avidemux, you must re-index the movie
Steps to Reproduce:
I cannot judge that this problem is ours. Is re-indexing a big deal?
Can you please first ask about it in their usability forum:
The simple question being "Should you expect to re-index a movie migrating from 2.7 to 2.8?"
and if not - where might the problem lie?
[quote]where might the problem lie?[/quote]
The new version (2.7.8) is not backward compatible (by indexing a movie) to the version, that is distributed with MGA8 (2.7.6.). I can not cooperate with other people, who use another system that can use avidemux 2.7.8
Is it a serious problem? Cauldron offers (2021-03-09): 2.7.8. and makeing a backport for MGA8?

Thanks doing this.

Per this, and per http://fixounet.free.fr/avidemux/download.html,
Upstream latest version is 2.7.8.
This is worth the upgrade.
Assigning to all packagers and CC'd latest committer on this.
Avidemux uses a old kind of indexing =>
Update request: newer version of Avidemux resolves bugs in file indexingSource RPM:
Aurélien has just launched this onwards, but here is what I was going to say - redundant, but for the record:
Got the answer.
1) Versions were confused: our current normal one is 2.7.6, the latest in Cauldron is 2.7.8 - as per your comment 2. Initial reference (comment 0, SRPM) to 2.7 & 2.8 clouded the issue.
2) From upstream:
> We need to force re-indexing of MPEG-TS files because old index files
> reflected and perpetuated bugs in previous releases which are now fixed.
> Additionally, there have been minor format changes to deal better with
> interlaced video.
Closing this fixed (by that explanation).
If you really want to see 2.7.8 in Mageia 8, please re-open the bug setting Component to Backport
We probably should update it. It does fix CVE-2020-13904 in the bundled ffmpeg. It would be nice to get a new upstream release that updates to a newer ffmpeg branch. Does upstream have anything to say about when that might be happening?
