Software Tutorial

How to use Avidemux to resize an HD video so that it is small enough to upload to a website or email.

Open Avidemux

Using Ubuntu, open Avidemux by going Applications > Sound and Video > Avidemux.

Load a video

Go File > Open and find the file on your computer.

Trim clip (if necessary)

When the video is open, you will see a preview of it. If you need to trim the clip, set a beginning and end point by moving the slider then clicking the A (start) and B (end) buttons.

Select conversion settings

By using the Auto feature, you can easily format the video for a range of different uses. The best format to use for an e-portfolio is FLV. Go Auto > FLV

Save Video

Now, to save your video, click File > Save > Save video. The file will take a little while to render (depending on the size of it) and then you're done!
