@Perry Tanko: Try VirtualDub AIO, it allow to open everything without commandline.
The link is inside "More information and other downloads".

Review by ale5000 on Mar 2, 2015 Version: 1.10.4 OS: WinXP Ease of use: 6/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 10/10

It's Virtual Dub. I mean... this program is legendary, who doesn't know about Virtual Dub.
The only grip I have with Vdub is the fact that it can't take every format you send to it. If a separate program or plug-in was developed that let you feed pretty much any file into it, and that goes into VDub without any special command=line, the program would be PERFECT.

Renowned for it's overall features but long overdue for a GUI re-design. This is the type of program that should be to be a lot cleaner to use than it actually is. I still have to jog my memory about what frame/marker button does what every-time I run VD.
Seriously though, how many years has it been since it's first release? The interface doesn't appear to have have changed one bit.
I'm not talking about a complete make-over but I think it could be a lot more user-friendly with a bit of a clean-up, maybe even some customizable skins in addition to the default "Windows-95" one. :)

Review by mtRoom on Jan 2, 2014 Version: 1.10.4 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease of use: 5/10 Functionality: 7/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 6/10

If anyone is interested... I posted a VDPROF for exporting to MP4, MPEG2 and FLV. There is also a document that explains a lot of pitfalls in VirtualDub as well as the external encoder use and links to the encoders needed and how to set it up.

It is using the AVC/AAC codecs at the moment for FLV but the scripts could be expanded since it uses FFMpeg as well.

The link is and navigate to the VirtualDub section. The pertinent downloads are "*" headed.

If anyone cares to try it out.

Review by Budman1 on Aug 19, 2013 Version: 1.10.3 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease of use: 7/10 Functionality: 9/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 9/10

If the user is not familiar with Virtual Dub imput plugins,I highly doubt that will manage the External Encoders.Most of the world forum for video processing refers to Virtual Dub forum and the one and only guide for External Encoders - of the subject long ago I asked a question and never got an answer.Virtual Dub using for years but External Encoders never managed to start working.
According to that instruction,that ordinary people have to go to a school,to overcome in the External Encoders.

My advice to users "Tezza1971" :
"imput plugins" certainly used to be dragged any format in Virtual Dub - External Encoders forget...
used by another program,if you want (except AVI) another output format...greeting...
