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.
Avidemux is supports
many popular video formats such as mp4, mpg, avi, ogm, mkv, flv. It
is relatively simple to use as well, making it the best when splitting
files in mp4 format.
Avidemux has several
tools to benefit its users. There are preset output formats under the ‘Auto’
tab – these include Apple Ipod, Iphone, Sony Playstation Portable, DVD and
Microsoft Zune. Be aware that the program may crash occasionally, so always
remember to save your project before you save the video. Aside from these
preset formats, one can also choose the custom video and audio format for the
video from the dropdown menus on the left-hand side.
The software also
has the ability to join videos, which is convenient when there are several
different sections of one large file that one needs to cut out and then
put back together. But keep in mind that to join video files the size and
formats of the different sections need to be the same.
