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".
