Hmm, saying that "this thing" does not work is just plain not right. I have it 
running for much time now and it works wonderfully. There are programs which 
simply works better if compiled from source. And usually it's not such a pain 
to compile them. Even mplayer itself works better if compiled, also because 
you can get CVS versions which are more recent and are likely to contain 
bugfixes etc..
About the fact that some rpms are built against non standard libraries, that 
is rpm builder's fault, and you can't blame avidemux for that.
Anyway, try to compile it yourself, it's really easy, trust me. And is 
exceptional to use, so its worth a little work.

Sometime it's easier and faster to use already-done work when developing new 
tools. And anyway, this doesn't apply to avidemux, since it needs only X11!
