Run Avidemux on Mac OS X Lion

Since I upgraded to OS X 10.7, Avidemux doesn’t work anymore. Seems that there are libraries issues. Here’s a quick (and dirty ?) trick to have in work on OS X:

  • Download Avidemux from it’s official repository ;
  • Open the DMG archive and copy “avidemux2” to your “Applications” folder ;
  • Browse to the “Applications” folder, select “avidemux2” and select the “Show Package Content” option ;
  • Browse to “Contents/Resources/lib” and delete the “libiconv.2.dylib” and “libxml2.2.dylib” files ;
  • Browse back to the “Applications” folder and start “avidemux2”.

It works ok with Lion 10.7.1 and Avidemux 2.5.4.
Have fun!
