LosslessCut - no re-encode audio/video editor

#1 Post by webfork »

Synopsis: 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.

License: MIT

Framework / dependencies: Electron and FFMPEG

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

LosslessCut

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.

Lossless Cut

#7 Post by Rudy5 »

Simple and ultra fast cross platform tool for lossless trimming/cutting of video and audio files. Great for saving space by rough cutting your large video files taken from a video camera, GoPro, drone, etc. It lets you quickly extract the good parts from your videos and discard many gigabytes of data without doing a slow re-encode and thereby losing quality. It extremely fast because it does an almost direct data copy. It is fueled by the awesome ffmpeg (included) for doing the grunt work. It also features some other lossless operations on videos.

Features

Lossless cutting of common video and audio formats
Lossless re-merge of selected segments (for cutting out commercials etc.)
Lossless merge of arbitrary files (with identical codecs)
Lossless extracting of all data streams from a file (explode video, audio, subtitle and other streams of a file into separate files)
Take full-resolution snapshots from videos in JPEG/PNG format
Manual input range of cutpoints
Can include primary streams (audio/video), or all streams
Can remove audio track
Apply a timecode offset
Remux into different output format
Change rotation/orientation metadata in videos. Great for rotating phone videos that come out the wrong way without actually re-encoding the video.

No problem - merged threads. Also glad to have a re-test as it's obviously storing settings differently from when I checked it.

tried putting "config.json" file in app folder but it doesn't seem to make portable mode work. No other documentation on how to make it work beside the commit history https://github.com/mifi/lossless-cut/co ... 46c4f6993b

Version 3.59.1 is out. Download the LosslessCut-win-x64.7z package, unzip it and apply the chromium command --user-data-dir=".\data"
All (?) electron apps become portable that way. Move to submission forum. Stealth
I don't see any sunflowers for Palestinians though
