Selected Test Results

What works

Opening

Compressing

Editing

What does not

On non-english keyboards the key mapping is wrong for some shortcut keys (eg öü on german keyboards for go to selection start and end)

Minimizing the main window while processing stops the processing thread. This only happens if it shows the video while processing.

Workarounds

Hit the keyboard until you find the correct shortcut keys ;)

Don't minimize the main window.

What was not tested

Capturing video

Hardware tested

Graphics:

  • GPU: Intel

HowTo / Notes

Additional Libraries

I successfully tested the following plug-ins:  

Libraries

x264vfw - H.264 Codec Library for VideoForWindows API
Allows to read and write H.264 video.
Well, just run the installer. Works out of the box.

Plugins

FFInputDriver - FFMpeg Wrapper for VirtualDub
Input filter for almost any video container (MKV, MOV, MP4, MPEG2 etc.)
Extract into program folder, zip includes plugins32/64 folders.

BorderControl 2.40
Allows several border oriented filter actions like smearing
Requires 32-bit Prefix and .NET 2.0

FadeFX 1.2
Fade in or out


Not tested yet:

x265vfw

Integrate into KDE context menu

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

  • add the following file:
    ~/.kde/share/kde4/services/ServiceMenus/virtualdub.service 

    (in KDE 5 moved to ~./local/share/kservices5/ServiceMenus)
[Desktop Entry]
Type=Service
ServiceTypes=KonqPopupMenu/Plugin
MimeType=video/*
Actions=Virtualdub;
#X-KDE-Submenu=Virtualdub
#X-KDE-Submenu[de]=
Encoding=UTF8

[Desktop Action Virtualdub]
Name=Compress using Virtualdub
Icon=video
Exec=~/bin/virtualdub.sh ~/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
    ~/bin/virtualdub.sh
#!/bin/bash

export WINEPREFIX=~/.wine
WINE=/usr/bin/wine 
VDUB=~$WINEPREFIX/drive_c/Progs/VirtualDub/VirtualDub.exe

VCF=$(winepath -w "$1")
JOBS=$(winepath -w ~/path/virtualdub.jobs)
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.
