"A no-Frills Tool for Quick Video Edits"

What do you like best?

Avidemux has two main advantages: Its a free program and it is a small file size. For the most part, the tool isn't really anything you wouldn't have in a heavier system like Premier or After Effects, but its also substantially cheaper. I use it mostly to change the file type of a video file or change to codecs. It also allows some basic edits and changes which are helpful for clipping a few seconds off a spot or resizing the frame for a certain purpose.

What do you dislike?

The GUI is pretty basic and is pretty hard to understand. There's a lot of options available that don't make sense unless you know what you're doing. (And I suspect if you know what you're doing with many of these options you probably use one of the professional video editing suites.) The actual edits you can make are pretty simple (crop, shift, etc.), so it really is only useful for decoding a video file, not as a full video editor.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Avidemux is free so there's not much risk in trying it out. But, if you have better video editing software that can reformat your videos, stick with that. However, if you don't have the budget (or skill) to use Adobe CC or other editing software, then consider Avidemux to help speed along your work flow.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Some video files we receive are coded with the wrong audio codecs or are saved in the wrong file type (Usually .mov, .qt, .m4v). Rather than sending the video file back for re-edits or send it to Creative to have them re-format the video before using it on Social or in Web Design, we use Avidemux to reformat the video for use.

"The free edition for the design. "

What do you like best?

It is an interface designed for convenience at the time of simple operations, it reads several formats and when editing videos it can multiplex audio streams, simply an easy and complete tool.

What do you dislike?

I could say that what I dislike about such a product is that it is not valid for any operating system and it is expensive for what it offers, as well as some tools that I feel might not be useful and should be changed for something that helps more.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

IF YOU HAVE A PROJECT EASY TO SOLVE AND DESIGN USE IT AND IF YOU HAVE TO DO SOMETHING MORE COMPLICATED, TRY TO USE IT ON SOME OTHER PRODUCT OF YOUR PREFERENCE THAT FULFILLS YOU.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am not solving any problem at the moment I try to do it but it does not turn out I need a more capable and diverse program in tools and formats.
