Avidemux is a free video editing application that is distributed in versions for Mac, PC and Linux systems. The application is compatible with a variety of digital video formats, including AVI. In addition to modifying footage, Avidemux can be used to apply effects to videos. When working within Avidemux, users can rotate their video by applying a filter to the media. But before this change can be made, users will need to transcode the video. When videos are transcoded, they are essentially reformatted.
