VirtualDub is a piece of software developed for the Windows operating system. Designed to capture and process video, it’s function as a general utility tool means it can trim and clean up video fast before exporting it to another program for processing.

For large numbers of files, it also has the ability to process batches which can also extend with third-party filters.

VirtualDub is a video capture and processing utility licensed under the GNU General Public License (GPL). It is designed to be a general utility that can trim and clean up video before exporting to tape or processing with another program. It does not possess 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, which you can extend with third-party video filters. VirtualDub is best at processing AVI files, although it can read (not write) MPEG-1 and handle BMP image sets.
