Absolute amazing! Just cut out a section out of an mp4 file without re-encoding (no loss of quality!) - excellent stuff!

unlike adobe Premiere pro (gold standard), this one just handles one video clip but is simple to understand

Its very easy to delete various parts of your clip

Good if you want some lightweight video editing especially for video games

Good for simple editing without re-encoding

about Avidemux and Shotcut · · Helpful Not helpful

I am using this to trim, cut or joining film clips without re-encoding. This is the only program I have found doing this.
For more advanced video editing I am using the open source program Shotcut.

Problems with uninstaller: be careful!

about Avidemux and Adobe Premiere Pro · · Helpful Not helpful

I tried this programme which came up on a Google search for a free alternative to Adobe Premiere Pro. However it is not an alternative, its range being essentially cut and paste.

The big problem became apparent only after I uninstalled Avidemux. I then became subject to error messages relating to the "SmartSound Quicktracks" plugin and I presume that the uninstall programme is the cause. The problem appears with all sorts of programmes - my genealogy programme, a directory printer etc., none of which have any use for "SmartSound Quicktracks" and all of which worked perfectly well beforehand. Interestingly, I use 2 operating systems, XP (32-bit) and XP Pro (64-bit) and it is with the 64-bit O.S. that the problem arises!

So, be careful!!

Simple, quick and surprisingly versatile little video editor that runs quite well on my modest Windows PC.

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.

The easiest and maybe best video editor that I know

This is the easiest and maybe best video editor that I know of, since I use Ubuntu, there are better editors, but it is a nice one to use when you just want to quickly edit things. it has some nice features and effects.
