A downloadable tool for Windows

Video Dude takes a single MPEG4 clip, chops it up into random chunks, and renders it out into a new video using ffmpeg (downloaded separately). It can also randomly seek and play a video forever. There are many controls to customize exactly what Video Dude does, and each clip can be tweaked as well.

If you like Video Dude and find it amusing or even useful, please consider supporting its development.

Notes

  • Video Dude is especially good at cutting up "talking head" videos.
  • It can also be used in "DJ Mode" wherein up to 20 clips can be manipulated  with keyboard control

where do I have to put ffmpeg?

You should put it in a directory that is in your system PATH. I put all my utility programs in c:\utils and have added that directory to my PATH. My copy of ffmpeg.exe lives there.
