VirtualDub comes with a number of video editing components known as "filters". They can perform such tasks as reducing the video size by half, converting the video to grayscale and arbitrary rotation. Filters may be used during the video assembly as well. Filter plug-ins further extend VirtualDub's capabilities. A plug-in SDK is available for developers to create their own video and audio filters. But users still have problems when editing videos in VirtualDub due to the codecs problems. So here we provide you the solution for editing video without the video codecs issues.
