§ VirtualDub 1.9.8 released

VirtualDub 1.9.8 is now out, with the latest bug fixes for reported problems. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, everyone.

Changes in this release:

Build 32706 (1.9.8, stable): [December 24, 2009]
   [bugs fixed]
   * Fixed occasional hang with certain conversion paths from 8-bit (256
     color) to YCbCr formats.
   * Fixed bug where two curve points on top of each other in the curve editor
     didn't save properly in script files.
   * Fixed decompression error in IFF ANIM decoder when entire bitplanes were
     skipped.
   * Filters: Fixed glitches in IVTC pattern in the first five frames of
     video.
   * Filters: Fixed occasional crash when 3D acceleration is enabled and the
     3D device is lost.
   * Filters: Fixed bugs where the curve display would either show the wrong
     frames or fail to step in certain circumstances.
   * Filters: Blends are no longer allowed on filters where the input and
     output have different formats; this didn't work and produced a corrupted
     image.
   * Filters: Fixed crash in smoother filter with MMX disabled.
   * Decoders: Fixed crash in Motion JPEG decoder on certain kinds of corrupt
     data.
   * Frameserver: Fixed random crash issue related to stream format structure.
   * Hex editor: Fixed bug where 'O' and 'S' activated open and save commands
     instead of Ctrl+O and Ctrl+S.

Thank you so much for this great tool. I use it often for many different things.

I use this tool so often, maybe I should donate soon. It's great, fast and reliable.

Thank you for you great work!

Greetings from Russia

I'm using VD for many years, and it's one of the most useful porogramm on my PC. Thanks a lot for it!

And one more greetings from snowy Russia!

Thanks from Japan

"Fixed crash in smoother filter with MMX disabled."
Yep, I wonder how many have non-MMX CPUs these days, given that all the CPU vendors that existed at the time added it in the same year (1997), and all CPUs that was made after that have it. Flash Player has required it since version 8. There was a possible crash where some later builds of version 9 crashed without SSE or MMXEXT, but that was fixed with version 10.

VirtualDub doesn't actually even require a Pentium CPU, although you'd have to be pretty patient (or bored) to run it on an 80486.

Thanks from Italy!
You are just the best!! :)

"you'd have to be pretty patient (or bored) to run it on an 80486."

You are now imagining compressing an extended edition of Lord Of The Rings in 1080p into h.264 with a 486.

I love VirtualDub! Thanks for offering such wonderful software. Yes, yes, I know people complain that it is hard to use but after you figure it out you can do things so quickly. Simply put: it's not for noobs.

I have a question for you. I have XP 64-bit and a quad-core Intel processor. How come when I do an encode job using XviD compression (it is the only compression I ever use), it is not utilizing all my CPU? It's almost like it is only using one core because the CPU usage rarely goes above 30%. Is this a problem with my XviD implementation? Do you have any suggestions on how I can get better utilization? Some two-pass encoding jobs are taking over five hours and I'd like to speed that up.

Josh Stodola (link) - 29 12 09 - 10:12


In VirtualDub: Options->Preferences->Threading Replace 0 with 1
In Xvid encoder menu: Select Other Options from the bottom and put in 2-4 in Number Of Threads.

fredgiblet - 29 12 09 - 12:04


Under capture device I select ATSC tuner card - but the tuner options only lists NTSC/PAL no ATSC? So it doesn't receive channel only old analog broadcats not HDTV?

Mort - 30 12 09 - 06:11


Thanks a lot for keeping it updated.
Virtualdub is just great. Greetings from Italy !

Alberto Costa - 01 01 10 - 08:48


A big thank you from Portugal. By the way, what happened to "Capture -> Capture Timer" because in version 1.9.8 I'm unable to find it.

ARPcPro - 02 01 10 - 11:52


Greeting from Mars!
Yes I am one of those little green people and want to say thank you for your excellent tool. It is the best!

Zator - 03 01 10 - 10:20


@Josh Stodola: there are a few things you can do.
- download and install the latest Xvid codec: threading has been intensively reworked since the 1.1 branch, and makes it use dual core CPUs better (on more than 2 cores though, there WILL be idling: your 'general' CPU use in Windows task manager will thus never reach 100%).
- there is a possibility that you have a badly sized buffer in VirtualDub: increase your buffer sizes and see if it helps.
- if you really spend so much time packing stuff, you should consider switching to quality-based single pass encoding - since XviD is optimized for Q=3 to Q=4 anyway.

Many thanks for keeping this great software up to date.
Much appreciated

Virtualdub has been and will be one of my very favourite programs. It is incredibly useful. Thank you for all your hard work!
Best regards from Frankfurt, Germany.

uchuujin - 19 01 10 - 01:32


Wahoo, double party!
New Virtualdub version AND new mpeg2 plugin 64 bit from http://home.comcast.net/~fcchandler/inde..

Joachim Otahal - 23 01 10 - 20:15


Great program, Thanks heaps, I use it almost everyday (I love playing with video).
Do you think that one day i might be able to open a dvd directly, cut and edit, and save as avi, for making my music videos this would be a huge time saver. Thanks Again, Rev Col

OzDrDj (link) - 28 01 10 - 17:41


Good Program,it is very useful for custom control over the quality of the video and many more

Thanks from INDIA

Dinesh K - 28 01 10 - 20:20


I only use VirtualDub on my non profit Blog. This program is very easy to use and very strong even in slow machines with Windows 98. In my opinion VirtualDub could come with cams and camcorders. Thanks everybody for this useful free software.

FRANZ (link) - 29 01 10 - 04:35


How do you "install" this? It did not install like other programs do, so I was at a loss. I am new to computers if that was not obvious.

Lobo Jon - 12 02 10 - 09:39


Thanks for keeping the Win98 support. :)
