Video Conversion Software


I have started to use Windows again after exclusively using Linux and I wanted some video editing software. It had to be free and do a few basic video editing and converting actions, such as joining files together then converting them to AVIs. I first tried “Any Video Converter”, which was ok, but too basic. I also disliked it not being open source.

After trying AVC I then remembered Avidemux a really great, free open source video conversion tool, you can get versions for Windows and other OSs here on Avidemux download page.

Avidemux is a free video editor designed for simple cutting, filtering and encoding tasks. It supports many file types, including AVI, DVD compatible MPEG files, MP4 and ASF, using a variety of codecs. Tasks can be automated using projects, job queue and powerful scripting capabilities.
