is there a way to use a newer FFMPEG? maybe 64bit?
I do import and export large audio files from my cam, around 5-6h lenght through FFMPEG and this is SLOOOOW as hell, the only working is v2.2.2 (32bit I guess?)
is there a chance to upgrade ffmpeg to newer or 64bit, maybe it would help me to speed up things

Unfortunately, updates to FFmpeg frequently break compatibility with earlier versions, which then requires substantial work from the Audacity developers to fix, and means that everyone updating Audacity will also have to reinstall FFmpeg. Consequently, the Audacity developers are not keen on updating Audacity's FFmpeg very often.

One way round this problem is to use Audacity's command line export option. This should work for any version of FFmpeg: http://manual.audacityteam.org/man/expo ... ogram.html

Audacity isn't a video editor, it's an audio editor. To edit a video you will need to use a video editor.

If you wish to edit the audio only part of the video and the place that audio back into the video:
1) In your video editor application, "export" the audio track as a WAV file.
2) Import the WAV file into Audacity, edit it as required, and export as a WAV file with a new and unique file name.
3) Import the edited file into your video editor application, and save (export) the modified video.
