Avery Lee continues to release new "experimental" versions for VirtualDub's v1.6.x series. The latest version, VirtualDub v1.6.3, has -- once again -- quite long changelog and comes with two different versions; one for regular 32-bit Windows systems and one for AMD64 systems.
For those of you who don't have any idea what VirtualDub is, it is probably the best open source video editor in the world :-) The full changelog for the latest version is here:
[features added]
  • Capture: DirectShow driver now supports audio passthrough (Audio>Enable Audio Playback) for devices with integrated audio capture.
  • Capture: DirectShow driver supports capture from sound cards.
  • Capture: Reduced graph rebuilding in DirectShow driver for better performance.
  • Capture: Video/audio source and audio input selection is now supported.
  • Capture: More settings are automatically saved or savable through Device > Device settings.
  • Capture: Noise reduction, field swap, and luma squish can be toggled during capture.
  • Improved asynchronous file write code for better performance and smoother timing in capture.
[bugs fixed]

[regressions fixed]
  • Fixed crash when decompressing compressed audio with timeline edits.
  • Fixed 'movi' chunk error on append.
  • B-frame support was broken.
  • Fixed crash when adjusting crop parameters for a filter without a video loaded.
