CUSTOM SCRIPTS

Custom encoding settings can be created with the scripting engine. Do the following steps:
1. Start avidemux and open any video file.
2. Configure you own encoding settings.
3. Save the settings as project (File -> Save project as...) with suffix ".js".
4. Quit avidemux.
5. Open the project file in a simple editor and delete useless lines.
* You need the first line "//AD" and the line "app = new Avidemux()"
 
* and the encoding settings beginning with "app.video.codec(...)".
6. Save this script file with suffix ".js" in the user directory "~/.avidemux/custom".
7. This custom script is now available in avidemux under the menu item "Custom".
