Softpedia Editor's Review for AVIMux GUI
AVIMux GUI uses a separate thread for muxing, allows highlighting of files in the source list
Written by Olivian Puha on January 25th, 2013
Creating movies by merging videos, sounds and even subtitles is a task that can take up a lot of time, especially when some specialized tools are not at hand. To successfully carry out such a project, you may find a program like AVIMux GUI quite useful.
Fairly small in size and ready to run out of the box, with no installation required, this application was designed to accomplish a specific task, namely that of multiplexing (otherwise known as muxing). This means that with the help of AVIMux GUI you will be able to combine all the elements required to have a complete movie.
The clean interface allows you to load the files, generate data source from them and view the contained video and audio elements. You can choose to include all the audio streams and subtitles, but it is just as easy to exclude them, simply check the corresponding box.
More advanced configurations can be found in the 'Settings' area which enables you to customize the input and output options according to your needs. Thus, you can set the AVI or MKV structure for the resulting videos. The interface can also be tweaked for a better visibility of the streams and files in use.
A set of particular features of AVIMux GUI can be found in the right-click menu when selecting items from the main window. You can have the video data displayed either in the Extensible Binary Meta Language (EBML) format or in the Resource Interchange File Format.
All things considered, this application is easy to use and yet quite complex if the user choose to explore all its nooks and crannies. Also, the list of supported formats is pretty decent as AVIMux GUI is able to handle MKV, AVI, AAC, OGG, SRT or SSA filetypes, just to name a few.
AVIMux GUI description
Here are some key features of "AVIMux GUI":
Supported input file types:
· AVI, MKV, WAV, MPA/MP3, AC3, DTS, AAC, OGG/Vorbis, SRT, SSA
· All file format readers have been rewritten from scratch and do not depend on bugs of 3rd party parsers
Supported output formats:
· AVI, MKV, raw (MPx, AC3, DTS...), ATDS-AAC, OGG/Vorbis
· the AVI, MKV and OGG muxers does not depend on any third party bugs either (ADTS is too simple to speak about a "muxer")
Supports Open-DML AVI files:
· No size limitation for AVI files (note: this breaks many hardware MPEG4 players)
Supports creating rec list:
· Forces Microsoft's AVI Splitter to read AVI files sequentially, without seeking on the disc (note: this breaks many hardware MPEG4 players)
· Split large files by size, by time or by chapter boundary.
· You can use MPx, AAC and HE-AAC audio in your AVI files. Those files are 100% compliant to the AVI file specification
Extracting most stream types:
· All stream types that can be extracted in "raw mode", like MP3, AC3, DTS, as well as AAC and OGG/Vorbis streams can be extracted from source AVI/MKV files. SRT and SSA subtitles can be extracted from AVI files.
· An own cache increases performance over using the Windows file cache
· Some typical bugs in AVI files causing by some known applications can be fixed without remuxing the file
Mode 2 - Form 2 reading:
· Files which are stored on CDs using the Mode 2 - Form 2 - format, or files which someone copied from such a CD using Windows Explorer, can be accessed directly
· AVI files containing Vorbis audio in a way compatible to what ffmpeg does can be used as data source. Note that writing such files is not yet possible in AVI-Mux GUI.
Join AVI/MKV files with SSA subtitles:
· This works even when the SSA style definitions of the source files collide: AVI-Mux GUI will recreate them.
Real file type identification:
· AVI-Mux GUI doesn't care about the file name when identifying a file type, so it cannot be fooled by people who rename MKV, or, even worse, OGM files, to .AVI just to get more hits on eMule
What's New in This Release: [ read full changelog ]
· The CTextFile class is redone. Text files can now be handled in UTF-16 big and little endian (with BOM only), UTF 8 (with BOM only) and the local charset of your windows installation
· Added highlighting for streams that are default and for streams that AVI-Mux GUI cannot put into AVI files (this visual feature can be disabled)
· When creating XML files, now STL is used
· Matroska tags can be used to create several titles for one matroska stream. Note that this is, as far as I know, not yet supported by players or filters.
· The BitStream class is redone. Reading AAC audio is now faster.
· The widht and height of the settings window is increased if the right-bottom-most button is cropped.
· There is now a setting to enable, disable or leave unchanged the cleartype font setting
· When opening Matroska files containing Vorbis audio streams, the vorbis audio streams' titles were not imported
· A crash occurred when opening a matroska file containing Tags with no tar...
