I gotta agree with @smaragdus its up to the anti-virus developer to correct their mistake naming something as malware or anything bad when in fact it is not! I have used this software for quite some time and really like and its easy to use & works great.

There is a v2.6.21, only for x64.
"same as 2.6.20 with x265 encoder fixed on win64"

Love this software to do quick edits (just cutting out a clip from a longer video), or to convert file types (avi->mp4). If the codec remains the same it will be done in seconds!

Works OK for me. Unpacked, installed, ran it. Tried it with a few pictures -- it converted them to AVI video. Please note that the best results are obtained with pictures of moderate sizes, e.g. 640x480 pixels (most digital cameras will produce much larger pictures, which may cause the codec or this software to malfunction -- in my case it did not cope very well with 5 megapixel pictures). I used another portable freeware to convert all pictures to 640x480 (this was Irfan View, also known as I_VIEW). Hope it will work for you too. Excellent small program.

Ben on 2008-03-14 15:54

I had the same problem as Local...installing it normally it works, but try to move it to another directory and no go...is this app really portable (using v1.05)?

Ben on 2008-03-14 16:16

Very strange...it seems to not run if an Explorer Window for the program folder is open...create a shortcut, place it somewhere else, close the open program folder, then run the shortcut, and all's well...?

Midas on 16 Jun 2015
  • 2MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 27 Oct 2013

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 PortableApps.com format wrapper for VirtualDub. Alternatively, X-VirtualDub is also available.

Runs on: WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8
Writes settings to: Application folder
Dependencies: Video codecs such as DivX, XVID, etc.
Stealth: ? Yes
Unicode support: Partial. VirtualDub supports unicode, but the PortableApps launcher doesn't.

  3. Launch VirtualDubPortable.exe

That worked. You are a genius!! Thank you.

There is also a yaP config @ http://rolandtoth.hu/yaP/#examples/VirtualDub.ini

It's for 32bit VirtualDub, so to use with x64, change App\VirtualDub.exe to App\Veedub64.exe

Thanks to Ralph for his tidbit in comment #6 about fixing issues where the joined FLV would crash the video between the joined portions by re-transcoding the entire joined FLV. (I used Video to Video instead of XMedia Recode.)

can anyone give an example for a broken avi please ? i'm not really sure if i will ever need such program.....maybe you know if vlc player can handle broken files without that utility ? thanks !!

Death on 2008-12-30 03:50

For pam!: example is, files which are downloading from emule or bittorrent. Try to open with VLC. Then seek to the middle. You will see black screens. But with divfix++, there is no such black screens, gaps at all :)

That said I have no idea how good the x launched applications are

That's what I thought, too, but it seems pretty decent, even with the latest version. I'm pleasantly shocked.
