Use it for MPEG, AVI, DivX, VCD, SVCD and DVD MPG and you won’t need other complex software.
AviDemux's GUI is dedicated to the average user and it has an intuitive, user-friendly interface.
In a basic window you will be introduced to various processing tools, decoder options, filters and frame rate configurations.
Subsequently, you can edit, cut, append and filter videos and re-encode them to AVI or to MPEG 1/2. This virtual item is similar to VirtualDub, but the difference is that you can encode VCD/SVCD/DVD mpg too.
AviDemux supports the most common codecs (M-JPEG, MPEG, DivX, Xvid, huffyuv, WMA and so on) since it is fitted with libavcodec and libmpeg2. The application also offers support for audio formats like MP3, WAV and OGG.
The latest versions of AviDemux come with advanced features aimed at the various types of operations you may perform, regarding image export, audio, editor, TS/Demux, MP4/Demux and subtitle capabilities.
The developers of this application have managed to ensure proper initialization of Qz for jpeg export, fixed importing MP2 audio detected as MP3, fixed deleting chunks of the video leading to seek errors, better detection of double PFS input files, better TS/Demux initialization (avoiding dropping audio), fixed issue when source has more than 4 tracks, fixed management of PCM audio and many others.
AviDemux is the proof that you can encode and edit video files even if you are not an expert and that a simple piece of software can attract stellar user reviews and be reliable as well.
You don’t necessarily have to learn how to use a complex software in order to get professional results.
