Software recommendation: to the video file “open”

In the daily use of video files, in addition to playback, sometimes we also need to edit the video, or extract video clips, or extract the audio from the video to enjoy separately, or just grab some still images from the video. The above needs can be realized by AVIToolbox small software.

During the installation of AVIToolbox software, there is an “Add ‘Open With AVIToolbox’ Context Menu Item for supported files” option (Figure 1). If this option is selected, an “Open With AVIToolbox” command will appear in the context menu of the video format files supported by the software.


The first time the software is run, it may appear as an unrecognizable mess and you may feel like you can’t get started (Figure 2). At this point, simply close the prompt window and click on the first command in the penultimate menu of the software to enter the language selection list, and select English to enter the English interface. After starting the software, the unregistered version will have a 10-second countdown, and then press the Ok button to enter the main interface of the software for normal use.


If you need to split video or extract video clips, press Ctrl+O to load the video file, then drag the slider to the beginning of the clip file and press the Beginning button; then drag the slider to the end of the clip and press the End button; finally press the Save button to save the clip file (Figure 3).


If you need to extract the audio contained in the video separately, after loading the video file, click the Extract Audio button on the toolbar and select the save location to save the audio as an MP3 file (Figure 4).


If you need to capture a frame in the video as a still picture, first adjust it to the position you need to capture through the playback slider; if it is not good for precise positioning, you can jump back and forth at a pace of 50 frames (50 Frames Forward or 50 Frame Backward) through the commands under the Navigation menu (Navigation), or jump to the previous frame or the next frame ( Next Frame or Previous Frame); after locating the frame to be intercepted, click the Extract Picture button to output the intercepted picture (Figure 5).
