Some users also requested to be able to install the application to their SD cards. Pro version has that feature.

More exciting new features are planned for the Pro version.

HTC Devices With Internal Storage

HTC Droid Incredible and similar HTC devices with internal storage have an incompatible internal storage implementation.

That's why VidTrim does not show videos stored on the internal storage. But it should work normally for videos stored on the external Micro SD card.

So I recommend that you set your camera application to save videos to SD card by default. You can do it by opening up the camera app, tap the button on the left of the screen. This should bring up the options and you should be able to set where to save the video files. 

If you already have videos in your internal card, please download ES File Manager from Android Market, and move your videos from internal storage (which is /emmc on Droid Incredible) to external storage (/sdcard).

VidTrim can also be directly launched by clicking on a video in ES File Manager. It will ask you to choose an application to open the video. Choose VidTrim and it will open that video for trimming.

If you own one of these devices, please e-mail me and ask for support. I can't do anything to work around this problem right now, because I don't have one of those HTC devices to test.

Hello  everybody,

VidTrim is released for free in Android Market, and is available to everybody with Android version 2.1 or over. So far the application seems to work good on the following devices:
  • Samsung Galaxy S
  • HTC Desire
  • HTC Evo 4G
If you have problems on your device, please send simple video clips shot on your Android device to so that I can fix problems.
Please also write your device model so that I can update the supported devices list.

Thanks for everybody who support this project.

VidTrim Featured on featured VidTrim in it's Android Apps Alert #43.

They say:

How funny is it that it took two years for Android users to be able to edit the videos that they film on their cell phones, yet we get two apps that offer that feature in the same week? We covered Snip Vid Trimmer earlier this week, but a free alternative that also can edit the videos shot on an Android phone emerged in Video Trim. Load a video, set start time, set end time, and you have a new video clip to upload or share.

And here's the video. VidTrim demonstration is on the start of the video:

The initial release was tested on a Samsung Galaxy S. Bug reports are welcome. Please use the e-mail address that's given on Android Market.

This application uses FFmpeg with the permission of LGPL. I will release the source code of ffmpeg library I used for this project with detailed instructions on how to build it with Android NDK.
