It's great for fast editing!

Mar 28, 2017 Version: Nightly 2017-03-28 OS: Windows 10 64-bit Ease: 7/10 Functionality: 8/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 9/10

Having switched from VDub to this after I saw that VDub doesn't support mkv/mp4, there was no looking back.

But with latest version, the developer has made an ingenious change to move the marker keys to something plainly unusable.

What used to be a very handy one-key solution is now a 3-key solution for each darn marker.

While I like this new version with improved zooming, I am forced to go back to a decades old version to get back my marker keys :(

Would gladly rate the old software in the 9s.

-- 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.
