    "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.

    "Simple (yet flawed) GUI freeware for video editing."

    May 21, 2012   |   By e_t_m_ao

    Version: Free Video Dub 2.0.7

    Pros

    Very easy to learn

    Will cut any MPEG source without re-encoding (including H.264 based .mpg) and possibly HD video (I have not tried this personally, except for SD resolution)

    Simple Commands and Language: "Trim Left", "Trim Right" & "Delete" to operate...

    An exceptional, simple tool - once user knows how to identify timecodes or video frames!

    WILL EVEN IMPORT DVD VIDEOS EASILY... IT MAY TRANSFER THE CC DATA FROM INPUT FILE OR DISC (upon further development). FLAWLESS SOURCE AND INPUT OPERATIONS, OVERALL!

    Cons

    It states that it will save the cut file directly, yet does not: you will receive a 12-24 KB fake file upon output after saving.

    It currently is unlikely to store the CC data in the output file (Idk yet, I can't produce an output to begin with so far...).

    Summary

    If developed more and things are fixed, this program will doubtlessly become an extraordinary and powerful tool for free. Simple and effective so far, and further versions may earn a 5 star ratings... esp. if the features remain untouched, but the bugs are fixed. Mostly good starting progress though.
