"Fantastic Video Splitter and Converter"

November 28, 2014  |  By cdwood

 |  Version: Free Video Editor 1.4.2.623

Pros

Super easy to use. Quick splitting of big video files into smaller ones. Simple navigation. Did I mention SUPER easy?

Cons

Doesn't appear to be able to splice tracks together

Summary

I rarely write reviews but I have to take time to give back to download community because I depend on reviews by experienced users when looking for new software. I decided to digitally capture my 8mm tapes to MPG files. This left me with large files that needed to be chopped up into smaller ones based on dates and events within those large files. I have two boxed software video editing software but they clunky to use. I wanted something that would let me easily subdivide these files. This was the perfect solution. The files large fairly quickly in Dell Latitude E4300 laptop running Windows 7. The preview window stays in sync with the slider below. The program can automatically find breaks between video clips and add a Tag, but I wanted more precision so I turned that feature off and did it manually. The ability to advance and backup one frame at a time made this easy. You can also zoom in and out to make tagging more precise. When the file is completely tagged, you just click the Save Video button with the check mark for Split by Tags selected and the program does the rest. I set the preferences to put the dissected files back into the same folder as the original. The smaller files are named according to the tags which are just numbers. The resulting videos are equal in quality to the original with no drift of video and audio tracks. You can also set the program to set tags by a defined number of playing minutes (i.e. tag every 10 minutes). There is more the program can do (rotate videos, convert to alternate video formats, etc.), but I am not taking time to explore right now because I need to get back to my project. If you are looking for an extremely easy to use program for splitting up your videos, give this a try.

"Negative stars - added browser hijack"

June 06, 2014  |  By justme913

 |  Version: Free Video Dub 1.8.12

Pros

none. Software would not work well with VOB format, would not load large file. If you have Apple origin videos this is zero help.

Cons

Limited use, limited files, not fully explained on this site - but the big kicker? The Download Now site allowed a sneaky Trovi search engine to load simultaneously. It hijacked all three of my browsers, even though I disallowed all other components than the movie editor. It has taken me all day to pry that mess of redirects, new "home" pages, and junky search engines off the computer. Yes, I had anti virus running, no, I did not allow any peripheral add ons with the load.

Summary

DO NOT LOAD this - you WILL regret it.

"Easy, Simple & No Need for How To's"

March 12, 2014  |  By Philly_mom_GBY

 |  Version: Free Video Dub 2.0.21.827

Pros

Easy, Simple & No Need for How To's. I literally opened the program, opened the file, I knew what I wanted to delete, went to that part, you see clearly the 2 scissors' button and when you hoover over them it tells you cut left or cut right then you delete selection and save. DONE, no need to even Google how to's awesome

Cons

I see some complaints about ad-ware, whenever I download a program, don't do the "recommended one" do Custom and un-click all the ad-ons... then after is done, go to your Control Panel, uninstall programs and uninstall anything that installed along with the program. Is the best way (imo)hth

Summary

It's FREE and worth the extra steps to protect your PC and get the J.O.B. done!

"A FREE, NO-FRILLS PROGRAM THAT WORKS FLAWLESSLY !!!"

March 01, 2014  |  By rocketcab

 |  Version: Free Video Dub 2.0.21.827

Pros

(1) Fast, easy download (2) Extremely user-friendly interface (3) Needs very little hard-drive space (4) Works flawlessly, even for first-time users.

Cons

I'm hard-pressed to find anything wrong with this software.... It's pretty much as basic-as-it-gets.... However, users who feel the need for a tutorial (on how to use it) should be able to find instructional videos on YouTube regarding this specific program.

Summary

SOME HELPFUL HINTS : During the download, when prompted, select only the box marked "desktop icon" (or words to that effect) because, simply, that's all you'll ever need.... Selecting the box directly below it might introduce unwanted complications.... Also.... There is an updated, 2014 version of this program (sponsored by "DVDSoft", the manufacturer) that DOES NOT WORK AT ALL.... Stick with this one (the one you found at "cnet").

If, per chance, you have the so-called "updated" version on your computer, then delete it before installing this older version from "cnet", or else this one won't function, either....

"Comes bundled with a Virus..."

January 01, 2014  |  By jojocrowe

 |  Version: Free Video Dub 2.0.21.827

Pros

Does handle flv and mp4 better than most.

Cons

Flawed coding is prevalent in actual usage, and as stated in the title, it has a virus attached to it: Search Protect by Conduit...Google it.

Summary

Installing software from disreputable producers usually causes more problems than it solves. Cnet needs to remove these products from it's pages. Yeah, my AV didn't detect it either, but that only makes it more insidious.

"Turned out to be a great program!"

May 30, 2013  |  By seyhall

 |  Version: Free Video Dub 2.0.17

Pros

No toolbars or malware if you download from publisher's website. The toolbars and malware are coming from CNet's installer.

This is a GUI interface to the command line program called ffmpeg.exe. If you don't want to deal with command line switches, and you just need to trim a video, this works great.

The version I downloaded is 2.0.18.430. Someone said 2.0.19 doesn't work, but it appears that version has been withdrawn.

It can jump from frame to frame with a button or keystroke. This is useful for fine-tuning where to cut.

Cons

It lets you set the output folder, but the input folder appears hardcoded at c:\Users\[you]\Videos.

It can scan for next "scene," and you can set how sensitive it is to scene changes, but I found the feature pretty useless. It scanned and seemed to stop at random no matter what.

Once playback or the slider reaches the end of the video, the slider gets "sticky." You have hit Play and then Stop to free it up. This makes it difficult to trim the end of a video precisely.

The "Save Video" is only enabled after you press the X Delete button, but playing the video after you cut material to verify your cuts disables the Save Video button again.

Summary

All in all, a solid program that does what it says it does.

"Doesn't work"

November 08, 2012  |  By SpritiualChild

 |  Version: Free Video Dub 2.0.14

Pros

No pros since it won't work.

Cons

It won't even open the mpeg files I have(files that the older version did work with).

Summary

Maybe it will do something with other files, but it isn't working with the files that I want it for - files that the older version did work with.

"New version 2.0.19 Does not work"

July 16, 2012  |  By SpritiualChild

 |  Version: Free Video Dub 2.0.12.706

Pros

It seems to get the audio right.

Cons

When a cut is done, the audio seems to work, but the video no longer matches it at all. The video has portions of what was supposed to be cut, but at an accelerated speed.

Summary

I will remove it. I liked the previous version, but this one isn't worth the space it takes on my computer.
