Apologies that this is so basic, but I'm hoping to find experienced heads here.
All I'm doing is using VLC* to record the stream from a camera on a bird's nest. I need to be able to trim off and/or cut out excess bits of recordings so that people I share them with don't have to sit thru minutes of nothing happening to get to an interesting bit.
*I'm using VLC because I can continue surfing/working while it records the stream, unlike programs which record from my screen; also, it records in asf, which is beautifully quick to upload to YouTube - unlike wmv which the program I bought, Debut, turns out.
I have SolveigMM on trial and it does the job nicely, but I really cannot afford to purchase it for this little job, when the rest of its resources would be totally wasted. I cannot find a free or super-cheap program to do the job, Machete Lite does my wmv but won't do asf.
Quality is not crucial because the original stream is so grainy. Speed is the thing
I do hope someone can advise. Oh! this is the bird's nest (osprey), in case one is curious: Scotland
