A video capture utility for 32-bit and 64-bit Windows platforms

Do you need quick capture and encoding capabilities for video on your desktop? VirtualDub is a free, Open Source solution specifically designed for that purpose. VirtualDub might lack the editing power of a general-purpose editor such as Adobe Premiere, but is streamlined for fast linear operations over video in return. It has batch-processing capabilities for processing large numbers of files and can be extended with third-party video filters.

Release build -- 1.10.4 (stable), 32-bit (x86) version

This is the current release of VirtualDub for end users, containing the executable and supporting files. Unzip the contents into a new folder and run VirtualDub.exe. (Do not run it directly from the zip file!)


  • Microsoft Windows 98, ME, NT4, 2000, XP, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1, Server, or newer
  • 80486 or higher CPU
  • 16MB of memory
  • This version will run on both x86 (32-bit) and x64 (64-bit) versions of Windows.
  • Sorry, but there is no native version for Mac OS X or Linux.

Antivirus Software Issue:

Some versions of McAfee Antivirus have a bug where they report a Dialer-182 spyware infection after running VirtualDub 1.8.x. This is a false alarm caused by an exceptionally poor Registry key matching pattern in McAfee (anything in Software\Freeware) which misdetects VirtualDub's stored settings as from a dialer. VirtualDub does not have any malicious code or any dialer logic. Unfortunately, I cannot force McAfee to fix their software. If you are having problems with this, you may need to use 1.9.1+, which has the settings Registry key changed to work around this problem.

Release build -- 1.10.4 (stable), 64-bit (x64) version

This version is compiled specifically for CPUs that support AMD64/x64 long mode, including AMD Athlon 64, AMD Athlon X2, AMD Opteron, Intel Xeon CPUs with EM64-T, and Intel Core i7 CPUs. You must have the x64 Extended (64-bit) version of Windows to run the 64-bit version of VirtualDub. You cannot run this version on a 32-bit version of Windows even if your CPU is 64-bit capable.

It is recommended that you use the 32-bit version unless you have a specific need for 64-bit execution, as the 64-bit version cannot use 32-bit codecs or plugins.
