Imagine a piece of software which can do everything Virtualdub can do, however runs on different platforms, supports a ton of containers, accompanies all Codecs you require and doesn't utilize the frightful VfW interface.   That application is Avidemux!   Also now the "official" version: Avidemux is a free video editor intended for straightforward cutting, filtering and encoding undertakings. 
It's graphical user interface looks really like Virtualdub and most characteristics known from Virtualdub are available as well.   Avidemux supports an extraordinary number of file types, for example, AVI, MPEG, VOB, TS, MP4, ASF, OGM, MKV and FLV.   Similarly, Avidemux supports an extensive variety of Video/Audio types, including MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4 ASP, H.264/AVC, DV, HuffYUV, MP3, AAC, AC-3 and Vorbis.   Tasks can be automated using projects, job queue and powerful scripting proficiencies.  Video-DVD or (S)VCD compliant streams can be created with easy-to-use "Auto" wizards. Multi-threading is supported!
What encoders are supported by Avidemux?
Avidemux comes with several video encoders built-in: Xvid (MPEG-4 ASP), x264 (H.264 aka AVC), libavcodec (MPEG-4 ASP, MPEG-2, MPEG-1, FLV, HuffYUV, FFV1, MJPEG, H.263, DV) and mpeg2enc (MPEG-1, MPEG-2). Also it includes various audio encoders: LAME (MP3), FAAC (LC-AAC), Aften (AC3), Ogg Vorbis and TwoLAME (MP2). Please note that Avidemux does not support the platform-specific and outdated ´Video for Windows´ (VfW) interface and it never will! This means there is absolutely no way to use DivX (or any other VfW-based Codecs) with Avidemux! But don´t worry: Avidemux will open all files, that were encoded with DivX, just fine. Avidemux simply uses it´s own (internal) MPEG-4 decoder instead of the proprietary DivX decoder. Furthermore the files encoded with Avidemux and Xvid will play 100% fine on a "DivX certified" player, as long as you use the appropriate encoder settings...

What video filters are supported by Avidemux?
Avidemux comes with a wide range of video filters built-in. Most of those filters were ported from MPlayer, VirtaulDub or Avisynth. There are filters for Cropping, Resizing (Bilinear, Bicubic and Lanczos) and Expanding. For processing of interlaced video, there are various Deinterlacing and IVTC filters (e.g. Yadif, TDeint, Kernel Deinterlacer, Smart Deinterlace, mcDeinterlace, DGBob and Decomb Telecide). Furthermore there are filters for Denoising (FluxSmooth, denoise3d/hqdn3d, Stabilize, Temporal Cleaner, etc.), Sharpening (MSharpen, asharp, etc.), Color Correction and many more. Last but not least there is a new plugin system for ´external´ video filters now. So you can add additional filters to Avidemux without re-compiling!

Presumably there's some XP runtime issue with Avidemux which makes it crash if you try to play any video at all. But the Avidemux forums are no help at all. Stick with VirtualDub.

Good video editors are being actively developed: Kdenlive, PiTiVi, Openshot, even Lightwave (not open). But you can't beat AviDemux, it's the swiss army knife. Of course, with all that power comes complexity. When I just need to trim a clip off a home movie, I use OpenShot.
