I'm using Precise 5.7.1.

Just looking for something very simple in video editing. A command-line tool would be fine. Essentially, I have a 37 DVD course, and I'd like to trim it down to something much smaller by removing all of the stuff I don't feel like I'll need to go over again in the future. Just interested in split and join, and ideally the ability to work with .vob files.

I've been searching the forums for this, and found twenty or so apps, but the links for all but three were broken, and those three didn't work.

Hallo, Saladin.

I agree with backi; for simple split-and-join, Avidemux will indeed do just what you want. I am, however, going to recommend the builds by Patriot that are mentioned in Shinobar's post which backi linked to, here:-

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=46221

These are totally self-contained packages, and you get to choose, at start-up, whether you wish to use the GTK2 interface, or the Qt4 one. All components for both are statically compiled, and built-in to the .pet, and because of this it's kernel-independent (one reason why it works in so many Puppies). Patriot's build-quality is sublime, and I use this throughout my kennels.....including Precise 571.

The links for this are, believe it or not, still active, despite the age of the thread. Out of the three, I've found that the Avidemux 2.5.2 AIO works best, and is the most stable in 571.

For working with .vob files, you can use pBurn itself, or you could give plinej's pdvdrsab a look. It brings together a collection of useful Puppy multimedia tools into one single app. You can get the most recent version from the /puppylinux/pet-packages-noarch directory at Ibiblio. This is a direct link to the package:-

http://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/pet_packages-noarch/pdvdrsab-0.2.pet

Hope that helps.

Now I feel a bit silly, because when I was searching the forum for an answer, I looked at that exact post. I tried the first and the third link there, and both were broken, so I never tried the second one until you linked me back there. The second link works. Thank you!

Hah! Now that really IS a case of 'Sod's law' in action. I checked the second (2.5.2) link earlier today (since that's the one I use myself), but didn't try the others. They were working around a year ago, but I seem to recall all three were with different hosting accounts.....

Never mind. You got hold of the one which I know works, so.....that's the main thing. If you hadn't been able to do so, I was going to offer to let you download my own archived copy of it at MediaFire. You'd have had it one way or another..!

Try it out, and see if it does what you want. You may find this user guide to be helpful, too:-

Some of the features do take a bit of 'figuring out' from scratch....but it's pretty easy to use once you know how.

If you need a very simple command line method for grabbing a portion of a video file you can use the following method to trim out the portion you want to save:

Code:
ffmpeg -ss start_time_in_seconds -i inputfile.mp4 -t duration_of_desired_portion_in_seconds -c copy outputfile.mp4
