" Video Toolbox can record video from webcams or other device, generating snapshots and creating thumbnails automatically from the video clip. "

There are many occasions when using professional level video editing tools is not as important as having a quick fix readily available.

The heavy use of multimedia on modern websites and mobile applications means a wide range of developers and designers, coders, artists and marketers, have to manipulate complex files such as video clips, within the online environment.

For example, one popular workaround technique in use today by developers seeking cross-browser and cross-platform compatibility is to convert legacy Flash-based promo tools (such as cam performer preview loops) and other content into animated GIF or other formats that will display on Apple’s iOS devices, including the iPad.

In this case, a quick and easy solution may be to use one of many free online tools.

Calling itself “the future of video editing,” Video Toolbox (www.videotoolbox.com), is a free service that is capable of processing video files up to 600mb in size.

According to the company, Video Toolbox analyzes video files and displays detailed information about the codec, bit rate, frame rate and resolution, etc. and also can convert those files between popular video formats including 3GP, AMV, ASF, AVI, FLV, MKV, MOV, M4V, MP4, MPEG, MPG, RM, VOB and WMV.

A simple mode only requires users to select an input file and output format; while the advanced mode enables changes to advanced settings such as video codec, resolution, bit rate and frame rate, plus audio codec, bit rate, sample rate and channels.

Video Toolbox provides basic editing tools that allow users to merge multiple files on to a single video track; to specify a video’s start and end points for trimming; and to add a text watermark to the video file. A video cropping feature can remove old watermarks — or be used to create pseudo-HD content from legacy SD material — offering an easy way to extend the life of adult content investments.

Marketers will appreciate the ability to extract audio, video or subtitle text from a file (a feature known as demux), because it’s handy for generating text for search engine use. The process is somewhat bi-directional, as the tool also embeds subtitles on video clips.

Video Toolbox can record video from webcams or other device, generating snapshots and creating thumbnails automatically from the video clip. An Advanced File Manager makes it easy for users to upload and download videos, with a thumbnail sequence video preview feature, which is activated via a simple mouse-over and built on a sophisticated thumbnail-rotation technique.

Altogether, Video Toolbox might swiftly become a heavily used tool in the arsenal of many adult website promoters and other users. Give it a try and see if it works for you.
