Virtualdub compression?

I just download virtualdub and start it. I notice that under "compression," there is no mpg, avi, mkv, mp4 whatsoever. Is this normal? I would like to have those. Where can I get plugin? I did google about it but maybe I look into wrong direction?

For MKV and OGM support you'll need Virtualdubmod. It can save to those formats. Compression refers to the codec used, not the container format.

Compression: XviD, H.264, DivX
Containers (file formats): .avi, .ogm, .mkv

I see. Sorry for the mistake. Virtualdubmod is too old now (last update 2003?). It doesn't work well sometimes.

Which one should I choose if I want to have a small file size, not to lose video quality, and be able to burn a dvd out of it (like mpeg or avi)?

in that screenshot, is that all the codecs you have? Because if you want a small file size you should use Xvid and avi.

Whichever you like. If it's important to you to use a different container format, you could always use a secondary program to do the conversion. If you know what you're doing, the ideal would be to use H.264 as your video codec. If you want to lose as little video quality as possible, don't bother encoding a file: just go straight to DVD from your source, rather than (re?-)encoding and then making a DVD out of that, unless you're making a data DVD. If you're making it a data DVD (burning the files directly to DVD), you probably know already, but you're pretty much limited to DivX as a codec; most DVD players support DivX, and I've only heard of a minority that support XviD.

Yes, where can I get xvid and avi?

I have to re-encode it becasue I edit the video clip and have to paste them together. At this point I will settle for xvid. After I re-encode so to get small file size, I can burn it into DVD movie. After I re-encode it with what I have now with full compression, I still get twice the file size of the original.

I thougth most fansub groups used this, how does everyone manage when most of groups do release xvid in avi?

You can get xvid here: http://www.xvid.org/Downloads.43.0.html
and you can get divx here: http://www.divx.com/divx/windows/dow...FSjKhgodnUl3Pg

and virtualdub saves in avi
but like Ledgem said, if you want to play the video in any dvd player, you should use divx.
