The latest packages for Avidemux video editor 2.7.0 is available in However, the GetDeb repository is not updated for a few months, and there’s no packages for Ubuntu 17.10.

For those who don’t prefer the official Appimage (non-install) binary, I’ve uploaded Avidemux 2.7.0 packages into launchpad PPA (unofficial) to make it available for Ubuntu 17.10, Ubuntu 18.04. It also contains packages for Ubuntu 16.04, and Ubuntu 17.04.

Avidemux 2.7.0

1. To add the PPA, open terminal either via Ctrl+Alt+T or by searching for ‘terminal’ from app launcher. When it opens, run command:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntuhandbook1/avidemux

Input your password (no visual feedback while typing) when it prompts and hit Enter.

2. Then install avidemux2.6-qt package either via Synaptic Package Manager or by running commands:

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install avidemux2.6-qt

It’s avidemux 2.7 though it contains ‘2.6’ in its name.


For any reason remove the software via command:

sudo apt-get remove --autoremove avidemux2.6-qt

To remove the PPA, launch ‘Software & Updates’ utility and navigate to ‘Other Software’ tab.
