Thread: Simple Video Cutting

  1. #1

    Default Simple Video Cutting

    I have an .mpg video that is 22.5 megs and is 4 minutes and 40 seconds long.

    I simply want to cut from 0 to 3 minutes and 5 seconds......and keep the rest.

    Ive downloaded like 5 video editor programs but they all save to .avi, I just want to cut this .mpg and keep it as an .mpg

    Ive used other programs to save the clip that I want and .avi ends up to 625 megs for a 1 minute 25 second clip.

    Is there any program that can simply CUT the .mpg video? I dont want to encode to this or that, I just want to cut it.

    Is there any free ones? Or even better, open source that youve used?

    MPEG-VCR doesnt work at all, it loads up and tells me there is 16 editors something and freezes......loaded up the prog again and it does the same thing

    Due to MPEG licencing restrictions, it is unlikely that you will find a free application. The old freeware version of TMPGenc ( will enable you to output to MPEG, but this will re-encode th MPEG resulting in a loss of quality. Additionally, you will have to know quite a bit about compressing MPEG to small sizes in order to maintain that small file size.

    You could purchase videoredo that will cut without re-encoding, but I would recommend you download VirtualDubMod and use this to cut and output to compressed MPEG4 Xvid. There are many turorials on the internet for this process.
