Aug 02, 2015 Open 'AviDemux 2.5.6' Go to 'FILE' and load in the video you want to use. Go to the 'VIDEO' tab on the left and choose 'MPEG 4 ASP (Xvid)'. The Datamosh effect. R/datamosh: Ever see a crazy video with a glitchy transition? Press J to jump to the feed. Press question mark to learn the rest of the keyboard shortcuts. The program do create ekstra I frames, but they dissapper when I export and reopen in Avidemux. Another problem is deleting the existing few I frames, I can mark them but they.

Datamosh Studio is a datamosh video editor. You can use this program to perform datamoshing on videos in a quick and easy manner. Find out more about datamoshing here.

This software is currently in beta and it may contain bugs. If you find a bug please report it here.


  • Supports importation of AVI, WMV, MP4, FLV and MOV formats

  • Allows frame by frame editing of video

  • Exports to MP4 format for easy playing

  • Takes care of placing an IFrame at the beginning of the exported video

  • Allows customization of the format imported videos are imported to

You can't mix videos without audio with videos that have audio. Adding a silent audio track to the video before importing will allow you to use it with videos that have audio.

Datamoshing videos can be a time-consuming process, automation can help. For Windows users AutoHotkey is free, open-source macro-creation and automation software that can handle some of the repetitive tasks involved in datamoshing.

The following script for AutoHotkey automates I-frame removal in Avidemux, normally a manual process described in this tutorial. The video above was datamoshed using this automation script.

Load AutoHotkey with the script below and then when it comes time to remove I-frames in Avidemux simply focus the slider below the video and press Control+F to trigger the AutoHotkey script. The script will send the appropriate key strokes to remove the next 10 I-frames while you pop out for a break.

These types of scripts could also be used to automate key strokes while hex editing images, consider a script which would move a certain number of characters across and then insert a character — that could glitch out an image quite nicely. Similarly one could experiment with automating photo editing processes by scripting with a program like AutoHotkey.

Some of these types of automation could be accomplished through the usage of a programming framework, or scripting language, but automating at the user interface level can remove a lot of overhead and restrictions.
