LosslessCut - no re-encode video cutting

#1 Post by webfork » Sun Jun 10, 2018 12:33 pm

A very simple, cross-platform program for cutting a variety of video types.

The program isn't super intuitive. Watching the animated GIF on the website is helpful, but definitely read the "Typical workflow" bit. Although it took me some time to figure out how to use it, but it's dead-simple and very fast. It worked great with some Skype videos I had that ran too long.

Framework / dependencies: Electron and FFMPEG

Portable: yes, no settings to save. Stealth: no, writes a bunch of junk to AppData\Roaming\

Was looking for a way to trim OGG files losslessly and found this program.

Image

Some quick notes:
- It's an Electron app so the uncompressed filesize is going to be huge. It's around 250MB.
- Bundles ffmpeg.
- As shown in the above GIF, it can also losslessly cut video(!)
- The GUI is rather simplistic and is meant for only one cut operation. If you need to do complex editing, then I don't recommend it.
- Portable, but not stealth. Settings are saved to %APPDATA%.
- Has Mac OSX and linux builds.

Merging with the earlier thread.

Does it cut audio files as well?

As all the magic is performed by FFmpeg, see another possible solution at viewtopic.php?p=91129#p91129... plus, the recipe is valid for other media file types.

Yes, it cuts audio as well, which was the main reason I wanted to try this out.
