Duran Duran Video 45 (or technically just Duran Duran, as Video 45 was the format) is a two-track video EP released by PMI in the UK and Sony in the US in 1983. It was released on the VHS and Betamax formats. The release was originally intended to be like a video single, hence the Video 45 nomenclature.

The EP was released in two different formats, the VHS release included the "day" version of "Girls on Film" as well as the video for "Hungry Like the Wolf", while the Beta release included the "night" version of "Girls on Film" instead. It would be the versions on Beta that would eventually be released on the Duran Duran video album later in the year
