VirtualDub started as a software for recording video from analogue sources. This means it's roots are in the beginning of video processing on PCs when videos usually had the size of stamps. This causes a single drawback of Virtualdub: it is using very old APIs, i.e. VideoForWindows.
When Phaeron developed VirtualDub, Windows video software was unstable crap. But VirtualDub heavily depends on foreign software, be it codecs or filters. So he established very stable code around potentially "evil" software to catch any misbehaviour.
Today VirtualDub still is a great tool and it's one of the most robust video editors out there.
Phaeron stopped development, but he promises to keep it working on future versions of Windows.
