Video Art

This is a collection of video art resources focused on glitching, weirding, or otherwise destroying things.


Datamoshing

Avidemux

Avidemux is a free tool commonly used for datamoshing. You can also do basic video editing with it, though many people edit the original videos in some other software (e.g. Premiere).

Here are some good introductions to Avidemux:

Other handy tools to have are VLC for viewing and converting a variety of video files and ffmpeg as a general command-line video utility.

Many people report that Avidemux doesn't work as well for datamoshing on newer versions of OS X (I don't know about Windows or Linux). Some people recommend using a different operating system (e.g. with VirtualBox).

I tried downloading Avidemux 2.5.4 based on these instructions — TUTORIAL How to install avidemux for datamoshing on Mac OS X - Art! - Glitchet Forum — but it wouldn't load on my system (OSX Mojave).

That said, Avidemux 2.7.1 seems to be stable on a fully updated Mac. Here are instructions for using a later version (> 2.7) of Avidemux: Datamoshing using Avidemux 2.7.0 | Antonio Roberts. Using these settings, I was able to get some glitch effects, but they were hit or miss. Your mileage may vary.
