-- Use version 2.5.5 -- The new one is broken --
Not trying to sound like an ass but when the developers of the program don't do something, we have to share the valuable info. I was just having crash after crash using the more recent version of avidemux, then I switched back to v2.5.5 (because it was the most downloaded of the old versions on sourceforge), and now I finally can convert my h264 video again without crashes and without weird artifacts on screen. I don't know what they tried to do with version 2.6.x but it's clearly not working.
To everybody out there, I strongly recommend using avidemux version 2.5.5 .



Feb 5, 2017 Version: 2.5.5 OS: WinXP Ease: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 10/10



I had stayed away from this application for a while due mainly to audio sync problems. I had started using Video to Video which does the job very well so far as my requirements go. Unfortunately it has not been updated to decode x265 codec.

Recently I came across an x265 video that had a lot of useless real estate like a wall paper and the actual video content was limited to central portion. It was very irritating to watch. So remembering Avidemux's past capability of cropping the video I decided to look for the the latest version and see if it would help.

I was pleasantly surprised. I was able to decode the x265 codec, crop out the wasted area, use msharpen filter, increase the volume level by 2.0 db, and encode with x264 codec required for my 6 year old PhantomTek media player. The result in my opinion was excellent.

What I would really like to see added to the GUI is capability or minimising it to tray while the process is going on AND ability to easily set defaults upon startup. If these twi features are added I would rate it 10. Another thing I observed is that the sometimes the tray icon stops updating the progress % when hovering with mouse. This might be due to Windows behaviour, I am not sure. Overall an excellent application. BTW it is much faster, too.

Hi last 2 Nightly updates (AviDemux 2.6.12 Nigthly 160723 64-bit) CRASH. Thanks!:)


Jul 23, 2016 Version: 2.6.12 Nigthly 160723 OS: Vista 64-bit Ease: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 10/10



This latest beta still can't read and index mpeg2 VOBs or some mpeg-ps/ts. I still have to rip DVDs and Tivo downloads with 2.5.6.




Feb 15, 2016 Version: 2.6.11b160215 32-bit OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease: 7/10 Functionality: 9/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 9/10



Just like the beta releases of 2.6.11 (64 bit), the final release also has a problem not installing required .DLL files and won't run. Going back to 2.6.8.


Feb 7, 2016 Version: 2.6.11 - 64bit OS: Windows 8 64-bit Ease: 5/10 Functionality: 5/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 5/10



Love the program but the last two betas (possibly more) are broken on Windows with error: The program can't start because Qt5OpenGL.dll is missing from your computer. Would have posted this on their forum but registration is not open. Stupid.


Nov 16, 2015 Version: 2.6.10_r151116_win64 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease: 9/10 Functionality: 9/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 9/10



I have been using this program for almost five years now .I have no major issues with this program except mpeg 2 to mp4 encoding & lower audio encoging bitrates apart from 56kbps .Right i am using avidemux 2.6.8 ,I upgraded to 2.6.10 ,but had a few bugs like when you save your file it will not recall or remember where you opened the file .And as i mentioned from the begining about the mpeg 2 to mp4 encoding .Keep up the good work .


Jul 6, 2015 Version: 2.6.10 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 10/10



@landzstonez forumorg
I'm using 2.6.9 v2 in Win 7 and I've no problems at time to edit videos (cutting fragments using point A and B]. You can post your problem in the avidemux thread at doom9.org.



May 28, 2015 Version: 2.6.9 v2 OS: Windows 7 Ease: 5/10 Functionality: 4/10 Value: 5/10 Overall: 8/10



The program does not trim video as required: One can either get it to cut once only [A] or at point [B] not at 2 points for a controled cut? Therefore I can only assume its got a serious bug. I got the download link from your server, and I was using the 64bit version for win8.1 I strongly recommend to warn all users, i'm going to uninstall it because the app's failure is too serious for effective use.


May 28, 2015 Version: 2.6.9 OS: Windows 8 64-bit Ease: 5/10 Functionality: 8/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 1/10



The 2.6.9 installer warns me that I already have a newer version installed (2.6.8). I will wait until they fix the stupid installer and label it properly, if this really is 2.6.9...


May 15, 2015 Version: 2.6.9 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease: 9/10 Functionality: 9/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 9/10



It would be a boost to the user's confidence if the installer stated the version number correctly. It still has 2.6.8, when in fact it is 2.6.9. Still and all, an excellent tool with a mind-bending array of settings, some of which cause problems when you hit the save button.


May 15, 2015 Version: 2.6.9 (0) OS: Windows 8 64-bit Ease: 7/10 Functionality: 8/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 8/10



Great free editor. That said, it has many problems with subtitles.


Mar 12, 2015 Version: 2.6.8 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease: 7/10 Functionality: 8/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 8/10



Love this program! I stored so many TV films with Avidemux in best quality and size...


Nov 26, 2014 Version: 2.6.8 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease: 6/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 9/10



@titigrom

THANK YOU :)



May 5, 2014 Version: 2.6.9 OS: WinXP 64-bit Ease: 7/10 Functionality: 7/10 Value: 9/10 Overall: 8/10



@skidrow and others who didn't have updated

it's a bug with the Windows version installer, get the fix "Avidemux 2.6.8 v2" on the developer 's site



May 5, 2014 Version: 2.6.8 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease: 8/10 Functionality: 8/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 8/10




When attempting to add a marked section to the Queue, it returned an error

Got error "Queue Cannot get tinyPY script engine"

Does anybody know how to address this issue or is it a bug?

thanks



May 4, 2014 Version: 2.6.9 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease: 8/10 Functionality: 7/10 Value: 9/10 Overall: 7/10



When it comes to video editing softs -- even the light duty ones -- I remain something of a clumsy neophyte, so take that into consideration re my numerical ratings. This comment is to note that (as best I can determine) AVIdemux 2.6.1 was the last to be offered in a portable version. And that is a terrible pity. @kodec (Comments post #4) -- No, I don't think you are missing anything. It appears to me that some important functionality has indeed been stripped away from this program over time, and that is not a good thing either. Format options and other things that used to be there are no longer. So I'm going to hang onto the 2.5.x and 2.6.x portable versions. I'd rather have a program that (sort of) worked sometimes, under the right conditions, than a tool that kept on under development but was hobbled.


Apr 19, 2014 Version: 2.6.1 OS: Windows 7 Ease: 5/10 Functionality: 5/10 Value: 6/10 Overall: 5/10



(v2.6.8 of Released:20140312 Size:17.7MB)
EXCELLENT program used it for years, thank you to developers.
SUBJECT: script engine
Problem: not loading, not saving filters nor projects.
Reason: ??? could be i'm using such an old compu'r (XP)
FIX: Took out (cut) 268s scriptEngines FIRST,(placed into a blank folder) in case i wanted to place it back. Then installed version 267s "scriptEngines" folder




Apr 16, 2014 Version: 2.6.8. OS: WinXP Ease: 9/10 Functionality: 9/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 9/10



Thanks, jerghal, that's it! And I already thought I was hallucinating about something that never had existed. The 2.5.6 is the final version as far as I'm concerned ;-) I cannot recommended it enough to anyone who wants to cut xvid avi.




Mar 20, 2014 Version: 2.5.6 OS: WinXP Ease: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 10/10



I found that for cutting Xvid/Divx avi's you best use 2.5.6 (which I do) and for cutting x264 MKV/MP4's 2.6.X is best suited. 2.6.X indeed crashes a lot on avi's.


Mar 15, 2014 Version: 2.6.8 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease: 9/10 Functionality: 9/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 9/10



Am I missing something or this tool has lost most of its functionality over the years? I remember options for intelligent frame cutting even on non keyframes. It did all without problems etc and now all those fine options are gone I think, all that's left is a toll that crashes. What was that old version that last worked nicely with all those frame cutting options asking and automatic repair?


Mar 14, 2014 Version: 2.6 OS: WinXP Ease: -/10 Functionality: -/10 Value: -/10 Overall: 5/10




gets codec (H264), framerate, image size,... right but unable to show video (green screen), lots of errors ("cannot go to next keyframe)

other tools show this .avi video correctly

AviDemux is unusable



Feb 16, 2014 Version: 2.6.7 OS: WinXP Ease: 2/10 Functionality: 1/10 Value: 1/10 Overall: 1/10



No other program can do lossless editing on so many different containers anbd codecs like this app can. My only wish would be to include wmv / asf support as i still have to use the old asfbinmaster for that.


Jan 9, 2014 Version: 2.6.7 OS: Windows 8 64-bit Ease: 9/10 Functionality: 9/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 9/10



Is there any way to multy trim files with AviDemux 2.6? I want my trimmed files to remain.
I know that with selection and del button I delete segments from the video, is there any way to reverse that ? Thanks!



Aug 30, 2013 Version: 2.6 OS: Windows 8 64-bit Ease: 4/10 Functionality: 6/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 6/10



This is verry buggy peace of software, i even couldn't test it, because it crashes before i can do anything with it.
Sorry it looks good on paper, but not on my PC, to buggy.



Jun 4, 2013 Version: 2.6.4 OS: Windows 8 64-bit Ease: 1/10 Functionality: 1/10 Value: 1/10 Overall: 1/10



Have been using freemake's video converter for mp4->flv. While the video quality was good (except for the initial video frames which was very chunky)I just used the latest avidemux for the same purpose - the quality is noticeably better - especially wrt initial frames.


May 10, 2013 Version: 2.6.1 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease: 8/10 Functionality: 9/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 10/10



No improvement re med-large mkv and audio sync issues. Interface has changed, plugins like blur relocated. Still a good free editor for avi. 3 hrs to encode 500mb mkv file w/filters on 4g win7.
No need to change version



Apr 10, 2013 Version: 2.6.3 OS: Windows 7 Ease: 8/10 Functionality: 5/10 Value: 9/10 Overall: 6/10



Hi AviDemux Author, Thanks for the Program. It does what I need to do.

I use your Portable x32 and I wonder if you can add a feature so the program can remember the "Last Folder" used ... everytime I want to save a simple 2 second job it takes me back to the Root of your Program.

G!:)



Jan 12, 2013 Version: 2.6.1 OS: Vista 64-bit Ease: 10/10 Functionality: 9/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 9/10



Avidemux is a superb video encoding program but lacks some features that I desire on Handbrake, such as MKV encoding with chapters and optional subtitles.


Dec 17, 2012 Version: 2.6 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease: 8/10 Functionality: 8/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 8/10



I like working with Avidemux but for trimming video there are multiple problems. Cut MKV files sometimes have audio out of sync or have video but no audio. Cut FLV files work OK with some players but with others the video is speeded up or won't play at all. Version 2.6.0 is more reliable than previous versions but still needs work. If I have trouble with AVIDEMUX I try FREE VIDEO DUB for cutting and that usually works OK.


Nov 27, 2012 Version: 2.6.0 OS: WinXP Ease: 7/10 Functionality: 6/10 Value: 8/10 Overall: 7/10



For years I have been using another program for converting my DVDs into DivX files, and I keep the original AC3 audio stream for surround sound. But my brother ran into a snag recently - in trying to add one of the videos to his Zune, its software rejected the video every time. Turns out his Zune doesn't like AC3 audio - probably because his Zune is a dinosaur. I didn't want to have to re-encode the whole thing from scratch, so I immediately thought of this program. Using avidemux I was able to keep the DivX video stream, and convert the audio from AC3 to MP3. The whole process took only 20 minutes for a 2-hour movie, where redoing it from the start would have taken over 2 hours, not counting the time it would have taken to re-rip the DVD.

Just downloaded version 2.5.6 and looking forward to trying it out.

@siiozawq
Use asfbinwin for trimming .wmv files.



Feb 3, 2012 Version: 2.6.0 OS: WinXP Ease: 7/10 Functionality: 5/10 Value: 7/10 Overall: 6/10



Does not work with WMV3 at all.

I have Windows 7. Basically there is no audio output (sound) in the trimmed output video file. The input wmv file I have is WMV3 video (4CC codec) and WMA version 2 audio. The output audio stream is bad.

When I played the input wmv3 video in avidemux, it played very slowly, and the audio sound was sharp broken.

WMV editing needs major fixing for it to work.

I went back to v2.5.3 and it does not work in Windows 7 either. No sound output in the edited output video.





Feb 3, 2012 Version: 2.5.6 OS: Windows 7 Ease: 7/10 Functionality: 1/10 Value: 1/10 Overall: 1/10



If you have troubles running this with Mac OS X Lion (10.7x), follow these steps:

1. Right-click on Avidemux icon and select 'Show Package Contents'
2. Open folder 'Contents' --> Open folder 'Resources' --> Open folder 'lib'
3. Move or Delete 2 files: 'libiconv.2.dylib' and 'libxml2.2.dylib'

Happy New Year!!!
Thanks for the updates.

Regarding audioencoder_aften.cpp
i guess, there is no need for the bitrate lower than 160k for ac-3
request to authorts to add 448k and 640 k for ac-3

diaMenuEntry bitrateM[]={
{56, "56"},{64 ,"64"},{80, "80"},{96, "96"},{112, "112"},{128, "128"},
{160, "160"},{192, "192"},{224, "224"},{384, "384"}
};

request to author to modify it to

diaMenuEntry bitrateM[]={
{160, "160"},{192, "192"},{224, "224"},{384, "384"},{448, "448"},{640, "640"}
};

Avidemux is indeed a nice creation.

I wanted to rip the audio from an MP4 video with AAC audio. I marked my regions, but having to stop the preview to mark them was inconvenient. Then saved the audio with the ‘copy’ option, which didn’t seem to produce valid audio output and neither did the ‘PCM’ option (I assumed that it was exporting WAV format). Fortunately, I am an easy guy to please so the MP3 format which does work was good enough for me!


Dec 25, 2011 Version: 2.5.5 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease: 7/10 Functionality: 7/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 8/10



Monkeypack's comment leaves me a bit confused. First of all, the x86 ("32 bit" )version of Avidemux - as is almost always true - will run without issue on x86-64 platforms. I've run it on both Vista 64 and Windows 7 64 without issue. Avidemux does not depend on external libraries; the installer packs everything you need (though you can of course install Avisynth as well if you want to use the AVS Proxy with or without the AVSProxy GUI). A failure to install where others have had success using an identical installer (such as the numerous people who use each installer put together by Lord_Mulder or others) typically indicates a problem with one's own PC. It is of course possible that you either had an improperly compiled installer or (more likely, and fairly common) that some interruption in your internet connection truncated your download of the installer.

If a fresh download of the installer (SVN latest, please) from Lord_Mulder's site or Razorbyte's site doesn't resolve this issue, suspect something with your own PC.

As far as "Rumored to be super fast", Avidemux is as fast as the decoding and encoding libraries it uses and the options you select as far as encode complexity. Any speed advantage otherwise derived by Avidemux probably points to poor coding by developers on other GUI projects.

Giving this a poor grade because I couldn't even get it to launch.
Actually downloaded and installed the 32bit version first and the interface looked extremely simple to use. I was excited. But nothing happened when I tried to start the conversion -- quickly I realized I needed 64 bit version. So I uninstalled 32bit and installed 64bit version. It goes all the way through to the last step of installation, when it's supposed to launch, and it crashes. I tried re-installing several times and always crashed. Looked around for help on this issue and couldn't find it. Seems like if you can get it to work for you, it's a good tool. Because the interface is so easy, and because it's RUMORED to be super fast, I'd definitely give it a try. If it works for you, congrats. But don't be surprised if it doesn't.

This software is the Best. I use it to create DVD from DVR recorded programs. I also use it to fix screen ratio problem. I am using version 2.5.2 because the codecs in the new version don't work with the software I have, Pinnacle Studio 12, and DVDLab Pro 2.0 otherwise I would upgrade (tried but had many issues). So everyone is complaining about AV sync issues, well guess what it is not AVIDEMUX causing the issue. If you don't believe me then that is for you to research, because I have researched it. I found this out most computer CPU's over 1.5 Ghz can handle audio and video with very limited issues, if the codec is present the software player finds the codec it decodes and plays that simple. But when edit there is a piece that is put into the mix that we don't see or even think about. You see the Audio and Video when recorded has AV sync issues already, they are just masked by the decoder and sound driver and HW layer. Now as you increase the CPU speed you also increase the bus speed. This in turn also increases the interface card bus frequency. Thus a unnoticeable AV sync now become more noticeable. Using Encoding and Decoding software only further increases the problem. So the solution. You see audio is in terms frequency base and shifting or adjusting any frequency when dealing with audio cans induce harmonics that we cannot detect or even realize that they are there. And when coupled to video which has a high frequency can also cause this inducing factor. Okay so you are wondering what the solution is right?

Okay here it is.

Most sound card manufactures use a shift sample in the input stage of the sound-card and then use a de-sampling frequency in the output. In most cases this is not audible to use and can be masked by the sound driver and HW Layer, this includes all on board sound chips, and most low end sound cards. I have corrected my AV sync issue by using 2 sound-cards, one is a legacy card that does not have the input shift sample (Creative Sound Blaster 16 PCI original CT4430) and the the second is a Realtek HD on board sound-card. Now the trick, in BIOS you have and option to set the PCI clock for each card on the PCI bus, most are set to Auto 32 CLK. With the Sound Blaster in PCI slot A. I set the bus CLK to 16 and remove auto and set the freq for that bus to be 16MHz all other are set to the default by using the Auto and record the setting and then manually entering the setting. It takes awhile to get all if you have multiple PCI cards. Once done set the default audio to Sound Blaster and your done. I use Media Player Classic and use it the output to the Realtek HD audio through pin configuration. And I have tried the with version AVIDemux 2.5.2, 2.5.3, 2.5.4 and will test with 2.5.5. This does not get rid of the AV sync you never will it just allows the software to handle and mask it better.

Avidemux is an excellent program but it has some issues with A/V sync.

Regarding the A/V sync issues with MPG/VOB files, try this trick: first load one of these files on VirtualDub then go to File > File Information and check the Skew value. Usually it's a negative number (like -510 ms). Open the same file on Avidemux and input this number on Shift inputbox, before saving the file.

It worked for some files.

I revisit this program every so often to see if it's problems have been fixed. My basic requirement is to be able to trim video segments out of larger .mpeg files captured from other sources. The files play just fine on VLC. However, in almost every case, even the smallest edits in Avidemux introduce audio sync problems. It has many other features I would like to use. Unfortunately, if you can't edit a file without losing sync, the entire application is useless.

So, on the web site there's this "warning." Does this mean I should wait for version 2.5.5. to be fixed?

"Warning:The win32/64 2.5.5 versions are named 2.5.4 (r7200) and lack one commit regarding mpeg layer2 audio."

I had major issues with audio and subtitle sync. It was delayed by anywhere from 2 to 4 seconds. Had to revert back to version 2.5.3 which worked flawlessly. This had a different problem. A number of H/X264 rips with compressed headers would appear as simply green screen. I then switched to Handbrake which had its own problems with sharpness. Finally I worked out a flowchart for getting the exactly what I wanted as a final result.

What I need in my final result was 2000 kbps XVid Mpeg4 ASP, 720p resolution, sufficiently loud AC3 5.1 audio and SRT subtitles. This would make the final file of decent size 2000 to 2200 mb, compatible with all standalone players and playable on Atom powered netbooks also.

First of all I reverted to version 2.5.3. If the audio was DTS I would convert to AC3 using freeware SPG Audio Converter selecting AC3 and "Very High" as the format and quality setting. Inspect the file with MediaInfo to check if it had header stripping audio or video heders. If is was such then remux using mkvmerge 4.4 with the header compression set to off. Extract the subtitles. Rip the newly created mkv file through Avidemux 2.5.3 with my required settings + msharpen filter at default settings and external AC3 (512 kbps created by SPG audio converter) file as the audio source. Depending on the volume level of the AC3 file I would select DRC and gain between 3 and 5. Select mkv as the container and save. I always say NO to the H/X264 message that pops up when avidemux scans the input file.

I then run the resulting file through mkvmerge, add the previously extracted srt subtitles file and necessary comments to the track and global options. Then I am done.

Till today I was not aware that the compressed header was the problem for the green screen. Now that I know it has solved all my problems. It is slow but then I run 2 instances of avidemux simultaneously - my PC can handle it. CPU utilization does not exceed 70%.

I am from photographic field where every hair and pore on the face counts. The final result is a whole lot more than good enough. Handbrake does not come even close in quality!

Finally I have just downloaded the version 2.5.5 and will try it out tonight. I hope the sync problem from 2.5.4 has been taken care of.

I use this program for three purposes: to quickly change from one container to another (say avi to mp4) without recoding, adding multiple videos into one long file, or to use its crop feature to measure how much I need to trim off the edges of a video to eliminate the black bars.

I'd use it for much more, but every file I encode, regardless of the starting format, seems to have issues. Some videos (even just copied) have sync issues, while others have stutter issues with a pause every few seconds in the video. Its sad, because I really do find it easy to use.



Jan 22, 2011 Version: 2.5.0 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease: 8/10 Functionality: 1/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 4/10



One of the few editors that can work with .MOV files.

Good and fast - for my .MOV files it always warns about using B-frames - so there is some problem playing the actual video (stuttering)- but I can go to time and (it automatically jumps to the nearest key or intra-frame) to trim edit .MOV files - the resultant edited videos are fine.

Saving is still a bit of a mystery for me - I just save to .MP4 - which is the same internal format as my original .MOV - as I understand just a different container - then the saving is very fast in seconds - which shows AviDemux doesn't have to re-encode the video to save. I can't see how to save back to .MOV - but I can always convert back from MP4 to MOV - if necessary - using something like Quick Media Converter.

Ive weaned myself off Virtualdub and TMPEGEnc with this great free bit of software, but it helps to know your way around digital video generally ! It does pretty much anything I want it to, mostly hard coding subtitles, raising sound levels, and converting avi to DVD. It supports vbr mp3 audio without any sync issues I tended to get with VDub. It will do framerate conversions without a problem.
My top tips:
1 - To get all the required info about a movie file, open it in Avidemux and click the Gear symbol that sits on the toolbar between Save and Calculator
2 - To do a quick and dirty conversion to dvd, open the avi/mkv file, then click Auto -> DVD. Then click Calculator, select MPEG, select your target disc size (ie DVD5), click apply and close. Then click save, give it a name foo.mpg always works for me !!

Great tool for encoding your DV.avi-Files to MPEG-2.mpg-Files without any AV-sync issues. These created MPG-Files can be used to create a DVD with GUI for dvdauthor.

There is the possibility to delete/edit the MP4-tag of MP4-Files created with Avidemux: Open your MP4-File in Mp3tag and delete/edit the information in the File. Test it and be happy with this software.

I've commented on v. 2.4. This comment is specific to all the 2.5 builds I've tried. If you wish to use this tool to quickly convert video to .avi output using xvid codec one-pass bitrate, stick with v. 2.4. With all the 2.5 builds I've tried the output looks as if a semi-transparent checkerboard was placed over the frame. The output is not watchable. I've pointed this out on AviDemux forum and the response amounts to "use 2 pass" whereas in v. 2.4 single pass bitrate 1500 with highest motion detection(6) produces very good output from many sources. It seems there's no interest in even finding out this is a problem, never mind a fix.

If you use xvid one-pass mode, either use v. 2.4 or wait for 2.6.

It's title is AVIDEMUX, yet there is no obvious way to demux AVIs with it... You can convert, but not demux. How about a little truth to the name, and put a simple "demux" button on it that pulls each stream out of the avi, without recoding?

Whoever posted about being a noob and needed a guide must be such a friggin' noob to the internet in general that they never bothered even looking. Right on the Avidemux2's website is a great big link that says Wiki docs. Click that and what do you see but more links in the Wiki--one of which is "Tutorials & Guides."
This program is great. I've used it in both Windows and Linux. I do sympathize with the other poster about the audio syncing problem, however. I occasionally experience that as well.



Jun 8, 2009 Version: 2.4.4 OS: WinXP Ease: 8/10 Functionality: 9/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 10/10



After a year of struggling with this program, I find myself avoiding it, when I really would like to use it. In theory, it is an outstanding video editor. Unfortunately, I frequently find that after editing a file that plays fine on either Windows Media Player or VLC (for example), when I edit the file with this, the resulting new file has totally lost audio synchronization.

As I understand it, some MPEG input files have anomalies in them which do not conform strictly to the MPEG specifications. But for some reason, players like VLC seem to be able to play those files in sync, but Avidemux can't edit them in sync. Lately, I've been running into similar problems with MP4 edits: Avidemux complains about some anomalies in the original MP4 file, and when I get done extracting commercials from the video stream, the saved file is hopelessly out of sync.

Since somebody at VLC knows how to overcome these synchronization anomalies, I wonder why Avidemux team doesn't just grab that code and add it in as an optional tool. I would say that providing some tools to clean up the audio would push my rating from a 5 to a 9. As it is, I'm reluctant to use the program because I can never be sure what I'm going to get out the other end, after the sometimes very lengthy conversion processes.

I find Avidemux a very good tool which gives damn good results, its functionality was quite difficult to me as a newbie but I have become much more familiar with it as I use it more. I have done DVD to .avi conversions and H264 to .avi conversions (for play on my stand alone dvd player) and both conversions resulted in VERY GOOD results. Its filters make this tool outstanding. I thanks the people here at Videohelp.com for recommending it to me.

What an incredible software! I've downloaded this software many time, installed it and immediately uninstalled it. One day I read a review by an avid user and noted how highly it was rated. One advise, read the manual before use and I follow that simple wisdom to read the manual. I have nothing but good things to say about this editor, encoder plus software. You guys are brilliant. I do have one request to ask..please add video speed control filters in your next release. I will be happy to make a donation. Great software and keep up the exellent work.


Nov 8, 2008 Version: 2.4.3 OS: WinXP Ease: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 10/10



This is an excellent general purpose video tool. It's the best way I've found to convert divx/xvid videos to stand-alone friendly in one pass. It also has filters so that you can auto crop video or burn in idx/sub subtitles. Also as of v. 2.4.3 they've fixed it so that running multiple instances on a multi-core PC doesn't crash.

I've been using this app for awhile and the main frustration was trial and error when encoding with xvid for stand-alone player use.

However, once I found a site with a good explanation of xvid encoding options I was able to consistently produce stand-alone friendly output using AviDemux.

For Windows users the GUI might seem a bit unusual but you get acclimated. It's worth reading up on xvid and a few other codecs to get the most mileage out of this tool. I recommend it for any Windows Video Toolbox.

I found this tool very easy to use for AVI editing and very fast. I had no trouble using any of its functions without having to check any online documentation. The only 'problem' I noticed with the interface was that not all features had tool tips but most items were self-explanatory anyway.

Did I mention it was fast? It took me less than 5 minutes to edit my video and save the newly edited version. I took 3hrs 5 min of raw video down to 1hr 53 minutes making about 30 edits and no re-encoding. Fast. Faster than when I used VirtualDub the last time I edited my home movies!

You say you're new to video editors. And you need a "how to" section. I suggest you stick to programs which fulfil your requirements, until you advance and handle things differently, more professionally. Your rating is like "I don't like the taste of potatoes.

So I also agree with the comment of "not intuitive". Will keep looking for a simple way to convert avi to mpeg...but hope to progress enough to come back and take advantage of this apparently good product (if you have a bit of prequisite editing knowledge).

Originally I used it for cutting up video and that's why I donwloaded it. Couldn't have been simpler and very fast moving through the video. I like the way it detects potential problems with the video and offers solutions.
Once I started using it I discovered the encoding features which worked nicely to solve a problem I had with a video. I like the way the menus are layered in a very logical way and they don't show up until you need them so the interface is very clean. Every encoding format for both video and audio is very reconfigurable. A wide range of filters are also provided. Many of the features are also available in Virtualdub and Virtualdub may be more powerful but I find AviDemux easier to use.
I also like the fact that AviDemux will import many different video formats.
I'm using the Windows version and opening a file is different from the typical Explorer technique but once I figured it out I like it.
VirtualDub is an alternative to AviDemux and may or may not be a better program but for me AviDemux is a great program.
Help for the program is available at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Avidemux and provide some very useful information.

For linux this is a very useful piece of software. While it is often touted as a virtualdub clone for linux it does have some features that differ. It handles vbr mp3 audio like a champ and can output ac3 audio which is nice. While I have not used the windows version I know that it does compliment virtual dub (which I do use when booted into windows) very well. For linux it's almost a necessary piece of software for your video toolbox!

AviDemux alledgedly can do a lot, but using it can be quite the pain in the rear. It doesn't hold a candle to the VirtualDub family of tools. AviDemux would improve a lot if Avery Lee would work on its GUI and interface. In its current state it's not very intuitive, naming conventions for its functions are weird and uncommon, and even experienced users will bump into some aggrivation, or simply get mad working with it, because it shows a blue video-image while it should be red and many little things like that. It's clearly not supported and tested much by and for Windows usage.

AviDemux is the anti "Video for Windows" cornerstone, and it shows. The problem is its creators/developers don't want to admit to the reality that true Windows 2K/XP/2K3 User-Interfaces are easier and faster to work with. GTK+ looks ugly and often behaves uncommon for the experienced Windows user. Serious video-editing and processing on Windows systems is still way ahead of that on Apple Mac, Unix and Linux systems, and a tool that does not seem to like that just doesn't work for me.

Ignore Trend's false positive - this file is clean. AVI Demux is mature, robust tool that is a perfect partner to virtualdub. It is great for joining videos, handles VBR MP3 audio, has a strong range of built-in filters, and runs under Vista (!!??!). It isn't the prettiest kid on the block, and it's linux lineage is still very apparent (No file extension is added, for example), but it should be in every video toolkit.

Does exactly what is claimed. Has worked perfect for me. Someone mentioned a possible virus. Sometimes anti-virus software gives a false positive which is a problem with the anti-virus software not the program being scanned. The program works great for me and I could not find any indication of a virus.

Downloaded the latest version 2.4.1 and tried to run it... the latest Trend 2008 antivirus program stopped it dead with "attempted library injection" pop up message something about attempting to mark a DLL as to be loaded by some or all subsequent programs. Didn't trust it enough to have another go.

AWESOME!!!
I think I just found a replacement for VirtualDub MPEG.
It doesn't need replacing IMO...but AVIDemux deals with
that freaking annoying VBR audio with the greatest of ease.
Four Tens from me.

A really useful program that has the functionality of several other programs, thank You authors!

The quality of the encoded results well exceed my expectations, and the tools (such as 'save audio') and video editing functions make it a great package.
I also rate this as the best free program of this kind around, and think it's overall better than Virtualdub - it does the same tasks equally well, and can do more than it.



Nov 11, 2007 Version: 2.4 series OS: WinXP Ease: 8/10 Functionality: 9/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 9/10



I guess I had my head in the sand for the past few years! I just discovered this tool and it's excellent! Provides an easy and open-source way of converting anything to MPEG2 DVD compliant files. WhooHoo!!!


Mar 24, 2007 Version: 2.4 OS: Win2K Ease: 8/10 Functionality: 8/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 8/10



Easiest to use encoder. The gui is great for editing and adjusting audio sync, but can still be improved.
Job Saving needs improvement, but uses javascript files for jobs (and profiles), that can be easily edited.
Handles VBR in avi extremely well. DVD to avi worked fine, for the one file I did.
Doesn't crash as much as VirtualDubMod.
I like this program.



Dec 11, 2006 Version: 2.3 pre2 OS: WinXP Ease: 6/10 Functionality: 9/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 8/10



Tried it recently to check the performance. Tried the earlier version as well as the latest version. Converted a Xvid to DVD compliant mpg2, with direct audio stream copy and also by converting original ac3 audiostream to mp2. Xvid had 2Ch 48KHz 192kbps audio, 2.35 aspect ratio for the video, total file length about 700MB.
The video quality is good (the program selected FFMPEG for conversion). However, the audio was never in sync, it is getting squeezed in time so that the gap between audio and video kept on increasing progressively to someting like 10 secs for a 1:13:00 source. The Xvid audio/video was in perfect sync.
For comparison, tried the demo of DVDSanta4 - it produced VOBs which had perfect sync between the video/audio throughout the duration of 1:13:00



Aug 31, 2006 Version: 2.2 & 2.1.2 OS: WinXP Ease: 4/10 Functionality: 5/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 6/10



Very easy to use and install. No confusion on which package to download. Works well with avi, haven't tested with anything else. It can even work with avis that have VBR encoded MP3 streams. IMO it's better than vdub.

Jul 19, 2005 Version: avidemux OS: WinXP Ease: 1/10 Functionality: 1/10 Value: 1/10 Overall: 1/10



Just wanted a free tool that was able to join Xvid clips together since I now have a DVD player that can play those files. The programme works perfectly, even with variable audio!!!! I know that it can encode into .mpg, but that is what Tmpegenc is for. Excellent piece of software!!! Congrats to the maker!!!


Jul 10, 2005 Version: 2.0.40 OS: Win2K Ease: 8/10 Functionality: 9/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 9/10



Fantastic piece of software - incredible - thank you very much all the developers!


May 17, 2005 Version: 2.0.38 OS: Linux Ease: 10/10 Functionality: 8/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 9/10



Awesome Tool! Can use this like VirtualDub, but can make .mpg, .m2v, .m1v or .avi's out of it. Can also create .mp2 & .ac3 audio files. Check it out!

Have fun stormin' the castle!

Aug 23, 2004 Version: 2.0.2.8 OS: Win2K Ease: 8/10 Functionality: 8/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 10/10



an alternitive to virtualdub , though with windows , you could just stay with v-dub for some of the fuctions.
Easier to use for some people ..

big advantage in this uses ffmpegx and can encode to mpeg - as well as edit .. and uses some avisynth filters (needs more)

very fast




Aug 13, 2004 Version: 2.0.28 OS: WinXP Ease: 8/10 Functionality: 7/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 8/10



Great little piece of software here. I tried converting some DiVX files I had on my windows hardrive over to a DVD MPEG file and it did great! With just a couple of clicks I had an excellent quality MPEG-2 Video with AC3 sound. Well worth the seven libraries I had to download and install to use it!


Aug 1, 2004 Version: 2.0.26 OS: Linux Ease: 8/10 Functionality: 9/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 9/10



This is not just a avi editor! This can edit all type of video from mpg1 to xvid with any codec. It is also a encoder. It will encode almot anything to anything.
