    I have a .ts file that is about 10 GBytes in size - I need to trim a few minutes from the beginning and end. What's the easiest way to do this? Preferably using a free program but I don't mind paying a few coins for something decent that gets the job done.

    Thanks

    Simplest (and free) program is avidemux (do not worry about the avi bit).

    The program has to index the file so a large file will take a minute or two to load. Then you just do an A/B mark edit - A from the start you want to keep and B for the end.

    Choose copy for both audio and video and TS muxer for the format and save your new vid

    Well I tried it on a 15 GB file that I had and it worked well.

    However, I also have a file that's about 22 GB in size and when I read it in I don't seem able to see past about 25 minutes. File too big for avidemux I guess?

    Well I would guess that 15 GB runs more than 25 minutes.

    Does the larger one actually play with no issue after on, around and after that time ?

    I suspect a faulty recording. You can always try other software such as ts-doctor (free to try)

    Are you using the 64bit version of AVIDemux? It seems to handle large files a bit better. But I've never tried to edit of 22GB file.

    Yes, definitely.

    If this can't handle the file are there any other programs worth trying, even perhaps one that isn't free? (but not too expensive).

    AviDemux never works to edit Transport Streams for me. However, if I convert TS to MKV using Eac3to, AviDemux usually works to edit the MKV. Some TS files I can edit with H264 TS Cutter, which is free. If you only need to trim the beginning and end, TsRemux can usually do that, but you have to play the file in your normal video player and note how many seconds to trim from beginning and ending, then input those times into TsRemux.

  13. For trimming .ts files I use the free SichboPVR. You can download it from videohelp.

    Add the .ts file to the SichboPVR recordings folder (click on 'setup' at the top, then on 'advanced', scroll down to 'Recording Folder' for its default location), click on 'Recordings' (at the top) in SichboPVR, then select the .ts file, then click on 'Edit', the basic video editor will open, drag the bar to the start/end of the trim, click on the 'Cut' button, click on the 'tick' symbol to change to 'X' to disable that part of the recording, etc.

    Click on the 'Save' button to save to a folder of your choice in lossless quality (no re-encoding is done).

  15. TS is very tricky as open source multiplexer for TS seem to not exist (at least i'm not aware of any open source working multiplexer - very weird as TS is 30 year old).
