Hi Donald,
usm -g qt-4 does indeed return a result.
I created the "qt-4.8.7-x86_64-bundle.xzm" bundle.
Activated both this bundle and then the "avidemux-2.7.1-x86_64-bundle.xzm"
But, when I go to Applications-->Multimedia-->Video Editor Avidemux and click to start the program I get the same error message that started this thread "Sorry Plasma "Could not find the program 'avidemux3_qt5' (what I am describing here is the GUI process for launching programs)
It seems that the system is somehow looking for a qt5 version of Avidemux and what I have installed is the qt4 version.
All of a sudden I discover something, BOING!
I just right clicked on the "Video Editor Avidemux" entry in the Program Launcher GUI, clicked on 'Edit Application', on the "Application" tab I manually changed the entry for "Command" from 'avidemux3_qt5' to 'avidemux3_qt4'.
Now the Avidemux program opens!
This was such a convoluted process I'm not sure what exactly fixed it. I guess getting qt4 installed/activated did the trick. Tomorrow I'll grab a video file to process and see if it's working correctly.
Thank you everyone for the help.

very good :)
i think there two problems that occurred here: (not of your making)
1.usm offers wps-office as a source for qt-4, as it contains qt-4 libs, but not where other programs can find them(in /opt/kingsoft///)
2.the build script responsible for the avidemux package, for some unknown reason inserts avidemux3_qt5 into usr/share/applications/avidemux.desktop even though it is compiled for qt-4...
ironically, it is possible to compile avidemux for qt5 :p

My Avidemux 2.7.1 test module contains:

aften-0.0.8-x86_64-1ponce.xzm
avidemux-2.7.1-x86_64-1_slonly.xzm
celt-0.11.3-x86_64-1dj.xzm
jack2-1.9.10-x86_64-1_slonly.xzm
jemalloc-3.6.0-x86_64-1.xzm
judy-1.0.5-x86_64-1.xzm
libdca-0.0.5-x86_64-1ponce.xzm
libiodbc-3.52.10-x86_64-2.xzm
qt-4.8.7-x86_64-4.xzm

USM also wants to include mariadb-10.0.26-x86_64-1
Every time i see this, i try to build/run the software without mariadb.
It works in most cases I've encountered and reduces the module size by ~ 45MB.

I just tested my new Avidemux-2.7.1 with a couple editing projects and it works fine.
I have used Avidemux extensively on Windoz over the years but I was curious to see how it would perform on Porteus.
First thing I notice is that the program runs Much faster in Porteus. Windoz vs. Porteus, on the same laptop, files open and save in about 1/3 the time on Porteus compared to Win8.1.
Also, I recently updated from Avidemux-2.6 to -2.7.1 on the windoz side and feel that the new version on windoz is slower in many ways and has 'soft' crashes/hangs that didn't happen in 2.6. But in Porteus, Avidemux-2.7.1 performs great...
