It is now possible to encode only a portion of the input file.
Right-click on the file in the main list and select ‘Trim Duration…’.
Play the file and set the start and end points.
Click the ‘Advanced’ button to switch to the advanced view where multiple segments can be selected.
To add a segment, click at any point on the bar and click ‘Start Segment’. Click at another point and click ‘End Segment’. This new feature can be used with both audio and video files and works for all output formats (WebM, Opus, MKV, etc).
The batch cropping window has a new option to select multiple videos and auto-crop or reset the cropping parameters. This is useful if you want to remove black borders from multiple videos but don’t have the patience to crop them one by one. Simply select all items in the list and click the ‘AutoCrop’ button.
The MPlayer builds in Ubuntu repositories seems to be outdated. The mplayer version that I have on my system doesn’t play H265 videos. Also I couldn’t find a PPA which has new builds of MPlayer.
I have added support for using MPV video player as the back-end for playing audio and video inside Selene. You can select this option from the settings window.
Packages are available in the Launchpad PPA for supported Ubuntu releases. Run the following commands in a terminal window:
sudo apt-add-repository -y ppa:teejee2008/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install selene
Run the following commands in a terminal window:
sudo apt-get purge selene
