Avidemux 2.6.15 Improves Hardware Decoding, Adds Encoding and Usability Fixes

Avidemux 2.6.15 is here to improve hardware decoding and add encoding and usability fixes. It adds Fraunhofer FDK AAC as a supported audio encoder, introduces a “None” preset to the x26* series of video encoders, and fixes the two-pass x265 encoding on Microsoft Windows operating systems. Hardware decoding on Linux has been enhanced with the addition of support for HEVC/VC1 with the libVA library, and for Windows platforms there’s now an experimental DirectX Video Acceleration (DXVA) video decoder, along with a DXVA2/D3D display engine.
