You can get a native avidemux2.7-qt 2.7.0 package from my Stretch multimedia repo: http://forums.debian.net/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=127574

Or I believe you can also get an AppImage that can be simply deleted if you don't like it.

This might be useful for me also. I found the flatpack of avidemux unusable. And the flatpack of vidcutter whilst more up to date than the one in the repo was too prone to crashing. Hopefully all things flatpack related will improve in time.

It was the runtime. Yes, flatpak itself is small it is the everything else it brings in. Glad it is gone never to return.
Ditto, did the same thing and have the same sentiment ;-)

Did you try the 6.0.0 Vidcutter in our test repository? Repology says that's current: https://repology.org/metapackage/vidcutter/versions

I never thought to look in the test repository. Thanks for bringing that to my attention. I will check it out. Hopefully it has the ability to join clips which is lacking in the earlier version.

There's logic to how the tabs in MXPI are arranged from left to right, namely they are laid out in the order in which you should search for apps/packages.

So if you are looking for versions newer than you can find in Popular Apps or Stable Repo, you should search MX Test then Debian Backports repos for the versions of apps you want, before looking at Flatpaks. Only if you can't find what you want , then check out the Flatpak tab.

Switching back and forth between tabs on mxpi to search for apps is very easy.

The only reason I installed avidemux with Flatpak was to test Flapak during its development phase. I have no need for avidemux. I am well aware of the tab "hierarchy"

The only thing that would add to user experience is, that search field entry would keep entered text during switching tabs

On my machine the contents of /var/lib/flatpack = 68 bytes.

That search field is actually a different field for each tab... I mean it's possible to copy the text from one tab to another, but then switching tabs also does some resetting I think that might not make sense to keep the text there, I will look into it.
