    not directly; try ffinput driver plugin for vdub , then you should be able to load other containers like FLV, MKV, MP4 etc....

    Did you read the instructions?

    To install FFInputDriver just place the unarchived package under VirtualDub program directory.
    It should work automatically when importing different file types, if not select "ffmpeg supported files" in the open dialog box under files of type

    You also have to add these support files (included in the ffinput archive file) like so:

    When you unarchive the zip it will create a folder. Place this folder under the VirtualDub folder. It will work if you follow the instructions correctly.

    Through input plugins:
    - DirectShow import driver (requires installed appropriate DirectShow filters - splitter and decoders),
    - tateu's QuickTime import plugin (requires installed QuickTime),
    - fccHandler's QuickTime input plugin (requires installed appropriate VfW and ACM codecs),
    - and mentioned FFInputDriver.
    Also of course through Avisynth (with DirctShowSource or QTSource or FFmpegSource).

    With fccHandler's plugin You can use Direct stream copy mode.

    So... if FFInputDriver failed, try another method.

    Import - through input plugins.
    Export - when using external encoder (currently available in experimental 1.10 version).

  11. poisondeathray,
    I'd not come across the ffinput plugin you linked to so I thought I'd give it a spin. A couple of questions, if you happen to know the answers....

    I assume the plugin uses the ffdlls which come with it for decoding?
    When opening an MKV using the ffinput plugin I was surprised to discover seeking on keyframes worked. Normally when opening video by DirectShow, VirtualDub has no idea where the keyframes are, so I'm just curious as to how it knows when using the ffinput plugin.

    Mind you I think however it works, the plugin has minor problems. I opened one particular MKV and after playing some of the video and then returning to the beginning, VirtualDub displayed the second keyframe for the first 35 frames.
    I also tried remuxing an AVI (one I'd encoded using AutoGK a few hours ago) as an MKV and opening it using the ffinput plugin. For some reason when doing so, VirtualDub reported the video as having 9 more frames than the original AVI and it reported the frame rate as being 23.979 rather than 23.976. I didn't do a lot of investigating to try to work out why, but it was easy enough to confirm the first major scene change occurred on exactly the same frame when opening either the AVI or MKV version, but the last major scene change in the remuxed MKV version occurred 9 frames later than when opening the AVI directly. As opening the original AVI using ffinput didn't cause any frame issues I guess it must be a container problem, but based on my quick experimenting, I'm not sure I'd trust that plugin too much.

  12. Ganesh Ujwal,
    Try opening the MP4 with this plugin installed: http://forums.virtualdub.org/index.php?act=ST&f=7&t=15093

    As long as you have the appropriate DirectShow decoder installed (ffdshow is a good idea if you don't) it should open your MP4s. If you have any problems, try selecting "DirectShow Input Driver" as the file type before opening the MP4.

    yes

    FFmpeg can distinguish between frametypes. You have that access to that data before decoding.

    I think with the directshow driver, it is already decoded (uncompressed, so in effect everything is a keyframe) so there is no notion of keyframes. If the author wanted to update that plugin

    Mind you I think however it works, the plugin has minor problems. I opened one particular MKV and after playing some of the video and then returning to the beginning, VirtualDub displayed the second keyframe for the first 35 frames.

    Not sure. Many things are buggy or have quircks in the video world

    Just like ffms2 gets the framerate wrong sometimes. I usually use avisynth for everything and check everything using indexing when I can (you can force the framerate). Many of the import plugins are very flaky for vdub or don't work properly. I don't trust them. The only thing reliable in vdub for native import is AVI

    Directshow isn't frame accurate or reliable (nor is the vdub plugin accurate or reliable)
