Do you need quick capture and encoding capabilities for video on your desktop? VirtualDub is a free, Open Source solution specifically designed for that purpose. VirtualDub might lack the editing power of a general-purpose editor such as Adobe Premiere, but is streamlined for fast linear operations over video in return. It has batch-processing capabilities for processing large numbers of files and can be extended with third-party video filters.

  • I Really assume this program the perfect app I ever used! => check this webiste for Free Goods : www.scripts4geeks.com

  • While my geeky butt has been (for decades) extracting the audio from video files and cleaning them in Audacity as best I can only to have to splice them back into the video later, I have just found out today that VirtualDub is WAAAAAY better at it and fixes the audio and puts it back into the video file for you automatically. My file cleaning ability has just doubled! (if not tripled)

  • This has been my go to simple video editor / encoder for 15 years. The fact that it's free takes this capable (albeit no frills) program and takes it from a 4 star to a 5 star. The people on here nitpicking probably don't realize he coded this in his free time in college and continues to support this in his free time. It's not a corporation asking you to pay money for a product; it's one good dude being a good dude and giving everyone free encoding, trimming, watermarking, etc. Be nice to the guy and be thankful there are generous, intelligent people left on the internet.

  • Doesn't let you use mp4 files but it saves to mp4? Doesn't make any sense. All my vids are mp4s.

  • It seems to be working correct, but my output AVI is unwatchable, completely wrong. While creating the output, the framerate drops and I have no idea what to do about this. Also the layout is very user unfriendly, it's hard to find any relevant options.
