What works

One-click encoder, AVS Script Creator, Chapter Creator, DGIndex, FFMSIndex, L-SMASH Index, Muxer, x264, x265, Audio Cutter, VOBSubber, AAC and AC3 audio encoding

What does not

- Loading an AVS preview of a 1080 source may fail to show the source.  It may be blank, or show just the time bar and controls.  This is a display issue only, and it will still encode fine.  If you have this issue and need to preview the script, either temporarily resize to a lower resolution or use an external app like VDub.


- It likes to do strange things with aspect ratio and resizing by default under wine (like defining a 1:77 AR).  This behavior can be manually overridden by forcing the settings you need.

What was not tested

XVid, MP2, MP3, FLAC, and Vorbis encoding  These most likely work fine, but I just don't use them.

Additional Comments

Tested with Gentoo Linux ~amd64, Wine 4.5, MeGUI build 2896 (both 32 and 64-bit builds)

- Create a 64-bit Wine prefix and you can run either the 32 or 64-bit build from there.  This is one of those rare instances where a 32-bit app actually runs better in a 64-bit prefix.  If you are running 64-bit Linux (and unless you're running a distro from the 90s, you almost certainly are), Wine will create a 64-bit prefix by default.  

- Run winecfg and set your version to Windows 2008.  Vista or XP may also work, but MeGUI crashes at loading on Windows 7 or newer.  

- Use winetricks to install dotnet40 ONLY - other versions may not work at all or may cause strange errors.  You may get warnings that dotnet40 does not install or run properly under Wine.  Ignore them.  

- Use winetricks to install gdiplus.

- Unzip and run MeGUI.
