HowTo / Notes

Additional Libraries

I successfully tested the following plug-ins:  


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.


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:


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.
