Looking for mp4 cutter without encoding/converting



Is it possible to cut an mp4 without having to re-encode or convert it? I just want to cut out a small part of the mp4 without losing quality in the conversion/encoding process and then burn it to dvd.


You should be able to do this with AviDemux.


I thought that only worked with avi, but if mp4 works, I will try it. Thanks Kerry56!


mp4 is not mp4.

mp4 can be virtually anything.


You mean it’s just a container like avi?


Yes, mp4 can contain video made from any one of several different codecs, like H264, Xvid, Divx, etc. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mp4


To use AviDemux to cut MP4 video, select “Copy” for the Audio & Video drop-downs, “MP4” for the format drop-down, then move the slider to the required start point and press ‘[’, now move the slider to the required end position and press ‘]’ and finally press ‘Save’ to save the selection.

If it’s a DVB recording (e.g. off satellite, cable or digital TV), you can try the freeware tool TS Cutter (some info in the first part of this thread)


I’d vote for VideReDo TV Suite 4.

Give it a try.
