so we cant do this on movie maker ?


I keep comming to this great video. Thanks for the time spent teaching.

Love the 'Okey Doke, folks' salute.

I don't seem to find a way to view the whole video, the canvas is culled because my monitor is set to 800x600 under Windows XP. So I am guessing that there is no option on Virtual dub to adjust the video output for viewing it in lower resolution(I tried but didn't find it). There is no full screen mode view option, so I guess all its left to view the whole canvas is to adjust the resolution under Windows.

*VirtualDub, instead of VirtualMod, in the previous comment...

VirtualDubMod seems to be a dead project (latest realease, on august 2006), while VirtualMod is still being maintained by its developer.

Useful walk through, it would have been nice to see the virtual dub installation too.

Thank you very much for the tutorial! It was just what I was looking for.

Jerol - I'll back you up that VirtualDub (and VirtualDubMod) aren't exactly intuitive, nor is Audacity. I have made notes in the wiki:

which might be useful for using VirtualDub and Audacity.

Tutorial videos showing how to use these programs would be super!


Thanks Dai for making a video combining VirtualDub and Audacity with CamStudio. I hope that you will consider expanding this video, since VD and Audacity are so useful (but not exactly intuitive). A video showing how to split off a defective sound track and rerecord a new one without screwing up the video would be particularly helpful.

Hi Dai, thanks for this video. I tweaked your description by linking to the VirtualDub and Audacity sites.

It is great to see you using the CamStudio Lossless Codec here - as you know we can't accept videos encoded with the MSU codec so we can't benefit from its smaller results.

Showmedo is a peer-produced video-tutorials and screencasts site for free and open-source software (FOSS)- with the exception of some club videos, the large majority are free to watch and download.

Educating the Open-source Community With Showmedo

Although as important as the software it supports, education and documentation are relatively neglected in the Open-source world. Coders love to code, and explaining how best to use or improve the software tends to be deferred or even sidelined.

At Showmedo we believe the community can play a vital role here and also say thanks for the tools and software that make our lives easier. If you have a piece of software you love or a programming langugage you are enthusiastic about, why not make a screencast showing others how to use it? All the stuff you wish you'd been told, the tips, tricks, insights that would have saved you time and frustration.

Screencasting is easier than you think, and we're happy to help you. You can emailus for advice or just use some of the how-to screencasts on the site. This screencasting learning-pathis a good place to start.

Kudos and Thanks for Dai
