Version 1.10.x - latest 1.10.4 is dated 2013-10-28
Development is stopped except compatibility/bug fixes.
Please note specific version when submitting test results.
You absolutely should install x264vfw and FFInputDriver as VirtualDub will be almost useless without! See Note below!
What does not
What was not tested
VirtualDub Version 1.10.4 Rated Silver because there are a few bugs which can be worked around easily. The above was tested on my old system using Wine 1.7.44. Currently I am using 1.8.0 and experiencing major problems (memory leaks causing strange crashes?) which did not occur with my old Kubuntu installation. As soon as I have figured out more, I will post new test data.

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.
Allows several border oriented filter actions like smearing
Requires 32-bit Prefix and .NET 2.0
Fade in or out

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

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.
