  1. Suggested correction on the installation line (last code)
    sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get install -y avidemux2.6

    not avideumux2.6, otherwise it won’t be installed.

  2. Here is the Correct line:
    sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get install -y avidemux2.6


  3. im running linux mint 16… avidemux 2.5 doesnt seem to support my TS files with mp2 audio… cant seem to figure out how to import the mp2 codecs… so I tried installing avidemux 2.6 as above and it wont launch saying cannot load Glade file… any suggestions with either problem?

    • Hi !
