Avidemux 2.8 Released with FFV1 Encoder, WMA9 Lossless and TrueHD Decoding

Almost ten months in development, Avidemux 2.8 is here to add the ability to convert HDR (High Dynamic Range) video to SDR (Standard Dynamic Range) with tone mapping using a variety of methods, decoding support for the WMA9 Lossless codec, the ability to decode TrueHD audio tracks and support for them in Matroska (MKV) containers.

Avidemux 2.8 also brings back the FFV1 (FF Video Codec 1) encoder, which was previously available in the Avidemux 2.5 series. Furthermore, this release updates the Resample FPS filter with Blend and motion interpolation options, and adds the ability to mark cut points on the navigation slider, along with new buttons and shortcuts to jump to these cut points.
