VirtualDub constantly crashing

Postby Eake4 » Tue Jul 03, 2012 11:09 pm

VirtualDub constantly crashing when I inputted a video script which would lead it towards a rather large file sized video. Even if I do input the original video VirtualDub will crash. Is there a solution to fix it without changing computer parts?

Are you using the most recent version of vdub?

Or if it's just mpeg2source or dgsource or ffvideosource with nothing else, you can just tell that I guess. :P

Also, moving to the V&A Help section.

The issue is likely that since the original file is pretty big, it takes a while to index, so vdub hangs in the meantime (but once the indexing is done, it should probably unfreeze). That said, just to play it safe, I would suggest doing the indexing beforehand and then loading the script in vdub. To do this, drag and drop the video file you need to index over the ffmsindex.exe file that comes with ffms2. It'll open a cmd that will close on its own once the indexing is done. At that point try to open the avs again in vdub and see if it works.

Either vdub hangs while indexing (just wait, or index externally like mirko said), or otherwise if you meant on render, lol 32bit file addressing and your encoder library.

Thanks guys, the indexing didnt work unfortunately and Vdub still will crash on larger file (generally 8GB and above).

If indexing it with the ffmsindex.exe isn't working, then the next best thing you could try is splitting the mkv/mp4/whatevs it is first, and loading it separately.
Drag and drop the video in mkvmergegui, go to the global tab and check "enable splitting", then you can do after this size and you can pick the preset that most suits your taste or specify your own. Considering you have issues with 8GB+ files, I guess you could use the 4483M preset, which is 4 GB or so. Then click start muxing and you'll get a bunch of mkv. Index them separately first (if ffmsindex.exe doesn't work as intended as it seems to have been evidenced above, just make an avs for each) and after that is done, make a single avs like so:
Code: Select all
ffvideosource("blabla-001.mkv")+ffvideosource("blabla-002.mkv")+ffvideosource("blabla-003.mkv")

which will give you the whole thing in a single avs.

Not the prettiest solution, but it should work as intended. Better than nothing.

YESS IT WORKS NOW!!
For some reason after I used this method, I also tried inputting a large file without the process of this and it still worked :? Thanks for the support
