§ ¶VirtualDub forum has moved
The "Unofficial VirtualDub Support Forum" has moved from http://virtualdub.everwicked.com/ to http://forums.virtualdub.org/. Please update your bookmarks. And yes, it is still the Unofficial forum. I like it that way.
Special thanks to Everwicked for hosting the forum, ChristianHJW for creating and maintaining it, and all of the moderators for keeping it running smoothly. I hope that the forum will continue to be useful in its current fashion. There may be a few bumps in the move, so please bear with me while I work out the kinks. All current user accounts remain valid after the move, although you may need to re-enter your login information since the site name has changed.
In case anyone is wondering why I have put such worthless text here, it's because if I don't type anything into the Body section, the (Read More) link doesn't show up and no one can enter comments.
First, I am a moron when it comes to computers. I try to use virtualdub 64 bit windows 7 and load an avi file. I get the error "couldn't locate decompresser for format XVID etc. need a VFW codec etc. I've looked on the web and found many sites with the "answer" for this. I find many codecs to download. I choose one and download it. then same thing happens. How do I get vdub to go through the codec i just downloaded? Can some good Samaritan please help a poor dope and give me a step by step instruction on how to find the right codec download it and use it to somehow be recognized by vdub or the avi file so i can edit the video? HELP !

Trying to encode subtitles to avi files. Following a tutorial...( http://www.my-guides.net/en/guides/gener..
My problem is when I go to "video -> filters -> add -> choose subtitle file". Whenever i choose the subtitle file, it doesn't register that I've selected a file and asks me to select a file again. I've tried with 5 different subtitle files, and I've also tried with 2 versions of virtual dub. Why won't it let me select a subtitle file? The files are fine and work properly, they all open in VLC player. I'm just trying to hardcode them for use on my xbox 360. Any help would be awesome. Thanks.

11 years later, the forums were closed after Virtualdub has its last version in 2013. :-(

Sorry about that -- it was closed because it was taking too much time to maintain. I had posted a more detailed message there and had intended to keep it up longer in read-only mode, but had to shut it suddenly when someone started running a mass archiver on the site and was blowing through my bandwidth allotment.

Please keep comments on-topic for this entry.
If you have unrelated comments about VirtualDub, the forum is a better place to post them.
