§ ¶VirtualDub 1.7.7 released
New stable version is out: 1.7.7. No new features, just some bug fixes. Enjoy.
Build 28312 (1.7.7, stable): [December 9, 2007]
* Improved accuracy of "set so audio and video durations match" for short
* Fixed vertical chroma positioning errors when converting to 4:2:0 or 4:1:0
* PluginSDK: Direct stream copy from a plugin audio stream caused
dwStreamSize in the AVI to be set incorrectly.
* PluginSDK: Fixed crash when using plugin to load a file with an audio
stream that isn't AVI compatible.
* Capture: When "wait for OK" was enabled with a DirectShow driver, time
spent in the dialog was counted against a time stop condition.
* Capture: Fixed crash when an error occurs while starting capture with a
* "Save segmented AVI" no longer crashes when only video is enabled.
* Prohibit zero for frame rate adjustment.
* Filters: The error return from runProc is ignored again for compatibility
with earlier versions of VirtualDub; this fixes some video filters that
broke in the 1.7.x series.
* D3D: Fixed a display change related crash.
It looks nice,but apparently no SF mirror contains this release. :-(

just use the main mirror for downloading (osdl.download.sourceforge.net) until all the other mirrors have it

I use PLEXTOR PX-TV402U capture card, which in fact is a hardware DivX encoding card.VirtualDub actually does not perform
any further compression, since the avi file is already hardware encoded. When I run Gspot, a video codec identification utility
(a freeware program that identifies which video codec and audio compression method is used on .avi files) it tells me that the
avi file is an OpenDML multi-part file (so many frames have been captured in the first part, and the rest in the second part of the avi file). This feature creates problems in the fast-forward or fast-rewind functions of hardware multimedia players.
I must tell you that multi-segment capture option is already turned-off in the capture menu of the capture mode.
Can you do something?
It is a pity such a good program not to have any use after all

Thanks for this Avery, I used AviDemux for almost all of my video-editing when I was still using Windows as my main OS. Speaking of which, I love VirtualDub, and I'd really like to see a port to Linux, even if the underlying code is changed (if I remember correctly, virtualdub relies on directshow). OH, mkv support too, seeing as avidemux was made for anime, and a lot of groups release in mkv format now. In any casem congratulations on the new release!

How come the main page says this entry has no comments, and only if you enter it then it says "X" comments and displays them?

It cuts the video files excellently. But I am getting sound disturbance when I am playing those video files. This is the only problem I am getting. An excellent freeware program.

You guys should provide more info to him for debugging... its virtually a PAIN to try to cope with all the existing hardware out there (and their problem) when you dont have that hardware to test on your own...
Guys should make video-casts of bugs and upload them or send them to avery :)

Seasons Greetings to all :)
Thanks for another year of VD updates.

jey: I would love to help out with debugging info if needed, he just has to request help here or somewhere I can read and I'll be glad to jump in with what I have.
Thanks and a Happy New Year! (although a bit late)
ps. (taking advantage of this post)
Avery, with sequential images, (example a1.bmp,a2.bmp), is it by design to ignore the "Automatically load link segments" option or is it a bug? It loads all images no matter the checkbox state.
