    Hello, I have several small personal videos that I would like to split at certain points. I have watched the videos and noted the exact time where I would like to make each split. I would like to find a way either using Window's Movie Maker or possibly another editing software that someone suggests to jump to a specific time in the clip for example jump to 50:17 in the clip so that I can then do a split of the clip at that point. I have not been able to figure out how to jump to a specific time like that aside from trying to eyeball it using the slider in the timeline. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi,
    what format is your video ? x264, xvid, mpeg etc. ? If is it avi, you can use Virtualdub. Goto and set time. But you will have to reencoded most probably.

    Hi Bernix, Thank you for replying to my post. The videos that I am working with are 1024 x 576. They are MP4 videos. I have attached the first one in case you need to see that. Thanks

    Hi,
    For this, you can use Avidemux for this video. Go-> goto time or Ctrl + T
    Then press A on the bottom for start you can then press B for end too. And then you have to recompres it again.

    Hello Again,

    Thank you Bermix for telling me about Avidermux. I downloaded and installed it. I am able to use Ctrl-T to jump to a specific point. Do you know where I can find a manual or a basic tutorial video for this program? I am a total newbie when it comes to video editing and I am having a hard time figuring out the basics using this program. Thank you again for your help.

    I think there will be some videos on youtube.
    And I found this http://filmora.wondershare.com/video-editor/free-video-editor-avidemux.html
    There is plenty of videos on youtube. But I found them not very good.
    And use much lower bitrate about 200kb, because in your example there are still pictures. So no 1000 as is in tutorial above

    Hello again,

    I think I am all set now. The html tutorial plus a couple of youtube videos helped me get a few basic instructions so I can do what I am trying to do. Thank you so much for all of your help with this Bernix

    Are you brave enough to use the command line? You can split your file without re-encoding (and loss of quality) using ffmpeg:
    ffmpeg -t 50:17 -i "dialogue 1.mp4" -c copy "first half.mp4"
    ffmpeg -ss 50:18 -i "dialogue 1.mp4" -c copy "second half.mp4"

  9. Yes, MP4Box and its GUI or MP4Tools can also split MP4 videos without reencoding.
