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 capabilities.
Reviewing 2.6.7 (Dec 15, 2013)
There are very significant bugs in Avidemux 2.6.6 and 2.6.7 (I've not tested earlier versions). These bugs have to do with audio/video sync of .mpg files.
Certain .mpg files which work and sync AOK in all common players such as VLC, MPC-HC etc., (and edit fine in other editors) play out of sync in Avidemux--even in the view mode before an edit is commenced. Essentially, Avidemux is broken before it even starts an edit.
This bug is so bad and significant I thought I was going a bit crazy. In a facetious post on the videohelp forum I sought help to which I received good suggestions which proved Avidemux is at fault. See dialog here:
Another downer is that I could not find a feedback link on the Avidemux web site to even report the bug! If one can't easily report bugs then this product is just too problematic to even consider.
It seems this bug is the same or very similar to that which Aegis69 has experienced. Clearly, the Avidemux developers don't read these reviews -- as it's now quite some months and a point version later since Aegis69 posted his comment.
Reviewing 2.6.6 (Sep 30, 2013)
I hope they fix the sound issue, whenever I make edits and do a direct copy save, the sound goes out of sync every time unless I re-encode the audio.
Reviewing 2.6.4 (May 10, 2013)
I realize that this software is powerful but it's also difficult to use.
Is there a guide somewhere?
Reviewing 2.6.0 (Dec 15, 2012)
The absolute GOLD STANDARD of all video editing apps. Avidemux sets the bar on another level along with apps like Mp3tag, zoomplayer, etc.
Bravo. Just bravo!
