    Hi!

    I've been trying to make samples from a x264 mkv. I tried mkvmerge, vdubmod and some other software, however no success What mkvmerge does, from what I know, is just to split the files which results in more than one file. Cutting is what has to be done, not splitting.

    Any suggestions?

    mkvmerge with --split should work, like
    Code:
    mkvmerge --split timecodes:00:05:00,00:06:00 file.mkv -o output_file.mkv
    (Start from 5 min in and end 6 min)

    See http://www.bunkus.org/videotools/mkvtoolnix/doc/mkvmerge.html

    That results in three files - output_file-001.mkv, output_file-002.mkv and output_file-003.mkv, and -002 contais the the part I've chosen to cut. However, I only want one file as result, if you know what I mean.

  5. You can copy a segment out of the .mkv with avidemux (not command line) out of many kinds of .mkv's, but only cutting on keyframes if the video stream is AVC/h.264

    If you have other junk (subtitles, attachments, etc..) it might not work - take the stuff out with mkvmerge first

    also if the stream is MBAFF or PAFF, or contains many b-frames and pyramids, it might not work
