I would like to trim a video I have in mp4 format and I can't seem to find the right tool to do this. My laptop has Ubuntu 16.04 LTS.
You need to install
To install the ffmpeg
sudo apt-get install ffmpeg to copy specific short durationg from the video file.
ffmpeg -i original.mp4 -ss 00:03:20 -c copy -t 00:00:30 output.mp4
-i -->Input file. The file name of the original video clip.
-ss -->Copy the new video from the original video started after 3 minute and 20 seconds.
-t -->Duration of the new video clip,(ex:- 30 seconds.)
Vidcutter is a simple tool that can trim your videos. Install with
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ozmartian/apps sudo apt update sudo apt install vidcutter
Lauch vidcutter and select a file with the open button:
use the vertical bar to scroll to the first part to add to the video and click
start split. Drag the bar to where you want the video to end and click end clip. Then use the save button to join your videos. There is no loss in quality in the process
You can use my app dmMediaConverter for this. It has an option to trim the file without reencoding it, so, it is very fast and lossless.
