Additional Comments

Test done with XviD 1pass and Uncompressed RGB under fast recompress and full processing mode. To autodetect filters, use a (native,builtin) override for msvfw32.dll and install that dll to system32 folder.

HowTo / Notes

Both Virtualdub and Xvid (Koepi's 1.1.3 build) codec install straight from .exe with no problem.

So far so good. Following overrides and configs were done in virtualdub to get things working:

1. Go to ~/.wine/ and make system.ini with the following contents:

[drivers32] vidc.XVID=xvid.dll

That is for recognizing xvid as a codec after installing.

2. Then to avoid an out of bounds exception, go to Options->Preferences->Display and untick Use DirectX for display panes.

3. Press F9 and F10 or disable both input and output preview panes under View menu.

Integrate into KDE context menu

To have a context menu in KDE (e.g. Dolphin):

  • add the following file:

    (in KDE 5 moved to ~./local/share/kservices5/ServiceMenus)
[Desktop Entry]

[Desktop Action Virtualdub]
Name=Compress using Virtualdub
Exec=~/bin/ ~/path/default-compression.vcf "%f"
  • create a "default-compression.vcf" somewhere by Save processing settings... from Virtualdub. (includes current filters and codec settings)
  • add the following file, make it executable

export WINEPREFIX=~/.wine

VCF=$(winepath -w "$1")
JOBS=$(winepath -w ~/path/
VIDEO=$(winepath -w "$2")

#echo $WINE $VDUB /master $JOBS /s $VCF $VIDEO
$WINE $VDUB /master $JOBS /s $VCF $VIDEO

If you don't need compression presets, you may remove all VCF stuff. If you want to use the default JOBS file, you may remove all JOBS stuff.
