Editors' Review

Making simple crop edits to videos of all formats shouldn't be tricky business, but most tools out there either do way too much or are so belabored with ads that who knows what evil lurks within their code.

Open-source on the GNU license, Avidemux is a breath of fresh air. Cropping a video is as simple as selecting the section you want to remove and then hitting the Delete key. Re-encoding a video is equally painless: select the output format from the drop-down list, save the file, and you're good to go. When choosing where to start and stop a crop, there's both incremental and multisecond advance and rewind tools, There's also a not insubstantial list of video and audio codecs that files can be converted to. Video formats include multiple codecs for FLV, MPEG, AVI, VCD, H.263/4, and others, while audio formats include MP3, AAC, Ogg Vorbis, WAV, and one or two more.

The program also includes advanced options, including generic decoder and post-processing tools, user-defined filters, GlyphSet adjustments, and more features. Avidemux should appeal to users of all abilities who are looking for a quick way to edit down video files.

"Good once figured out how to use it."

February 01, 2011  |  By mamahendo

 |  Version: Avidemux 2.4.4

Pros

Did what it was suppose to do.

Cons

Hard to figure out at fist what everything does and how it works. No playback sound, have to use another program to playback video and have sound.

Summary

It needs instructions to figure things out. It works good and does what it says it will do. Just takes time to figure out.

"Good program for clipping out sections of movies"

October 05, 2010  |  By jregal1

 |  Version: Avidemux 2.4.4

Pros

This is a free program that allows you to pull out clips of larger videos. The navigation of the source movie file is fairly straightforward

Cons

You can't paste 2 videos together. And, you have to go to the options to select a sound output channel.

Summary

This program is not going to be effective for anyone who downloads it and expects it to do everything for them. You have to go into the options and figure out what all of the tools do. Example: running a job exports the video.

once you have learned the program (takes 5 mins max for anyone who has decent computer knowledge).
