Split video file by ffmpeg:
There are two ways how to split video files by ffmpeg. The first one is good in itself, more than that - it is faster, but sometimes creates output files with certain flaws. So for those cases there is the second way of splitting video files: it is considerably slower, the output files are bigger, but it seems they are always of the same quality level as input files used.
Way : 1
ffmpeg -ss <start> -t <duration> -i in1.avi -vcodec copy -acodec copy out1.avi
Way : 2
ffmpeg -ss <start> -t <duration> -i in1.avi -sameq out1.avi
- <start> - the beginning of the part of a video ffmpeg is to cut out. Format: 00:00:00 - hours:minutes:seconds - hh:mm:ss
- <duration> - the duration of the part of a video ffmpeg is to cut out. Format: 00:00:00 - hours:minutes:seconds - hh:mm:ss
ffmpeg -ss 01:19:00 -t 00:05:00 -i in1.avi -vcodec copy -acodec copy out1.avi
ffmpeg -ss 01:19:00 -t 00:05:00 -i in1.avi -sameq out1.avi
- ffmpeg cuts out a part of the video file starting from 1 hour 19 minutes 0 seconds. The duration of the video sequence cut out is 5 minutes 0 seconds.
