On Ubuntu 11.04 Natty and older I used to cut streams recorded from Me TVenter image description here with DVBcutenter image description here. Though this package is in official repositories I can't use it because of missing the icons on the GUI and lacking the option to add it in the context menu for mpeg-files.

Installing a (higher) ppa-version doesn't work due to dependencies.

When I use Avidemuxenter image description here I have struggle with an audio delay.

What can I do to have it as easy as before?
