What is Avidemux?
Avidemux is a free video editor designed for simple cutting, filtering and encoding tasks. It supports many file types, including AVI, DVD compatible MPEG files, MP4 and ASF, using a variety of codecs. Tasks can be automated using projects, job queue and powerful scripting. The basic use is cleaning up the video from the wrong shoots, to only keep the good ones.
PLEASE NOTE : It's a simple tool dedicated to a single task... It IS a LINEAR editor, NOT to edit and mix multiple videos, when you have multiple videos, it stacks them one after an other. It does NOT parrallel multi-video edit, but it's not its goal !

Absolute amazing! Just cut out a section out of an mp4 file without re-encoding (no loss of quality!) - excellent stuff!
The best free program I've used for cutting/splicing videos, and it can do it losslessly!
I don't like Avidemux. There are some little annoyances, like very bad, not reconfigurable shortcuts if you're using an non-english keyboard-layout. The preview is not scalable. You have to input the output name if you're saving cutted parts, again and again. It's not very stable (in Windows only?). It's having big trouble with converting mpeg2-streams, but it don't display any hints it's not able to convert it. So you have to wait hours of encoding too see the audio is asynchron, the resolution wrong or other problems. That's all points VirtualDub is much more comfortable! But Avidemux supports a lot of codecs and containers, while VirtualDub is very limited. I hope AviDemux will gain quality in the future, then it would be a really great tool.
Great for trimming and splicing videos
BUT it still has no support for Intel Quicksync.
With a UI from 1999 it is unbeatable useful. Loss-cutting MP4 is a killer!
Effective, powerful, perfect ... except the buttons could've gotten a bit of a polish.
1 star deduction for two aspects:
Great for simple video edits. Also can transcode.
