VirtualDub is a video capture/processing utility. It lacks the editing power of a general-purpose editor such as Adobe Premiere, but is great for video capture and transcoding via third-party video codecs. It can also read MPEG-1 video files by default but requires Plugins Pack to open more types of video (adds FLIC, FLV, Matroska, MPEG-2, AC-3 and WMV).
VirtualDub Portable is a portable wrapper for VirtualDub.
Alternatively, X-VirtualDub is also available.
||WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8
|Writes settings to:
Video codecs such as DivX, XVID, etc.
||Partial. VirtualDub supports unicode, but the PortableApps launcher doesn't.
