VirtualDub Portable ScreenshotVirtualDub Portable is a video capture/processing utility. It lacks the editing power of a general-purpose editor such as Adobe Premiere, but is streamlined for fast linear operations over video. It has batch-processing capabilities for processing large numbers of files and can be extended with third-party video filters. VirtualDub is mainly geared toward processing AVI files, although it can read (not write) MPEG-1 and also handle sets of BMP images.Learn more about VirtualDub...

Could one of our German translators update the German page to include the new Plugins pack info, please? Thanks!

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
