    Is there a tool that can bulk split mp4 videos? I see a lot of videos splitters but none of them do bulk splits

  2. What is a "bulk split?" You can definitely do a simply split on every file in a folder, or every file in a list of files, using ffmpeg and a batch file. However, it is not clear how you want to split all these files. Most video files have dozens of scenes, and most people usually want to split on scene boundaries. To determine which scene will be split, they use their NLE.

    From a quick search:

    Cut first 51 seconds from different avi-files as batch-process?

    Batch trim using FFMPEG

    Need help batch splitting many mp4 files

    If you want a more GUI-friendly version:

    FFmpeg Batch Converter

    There are many more like this. Just do a Google search, restricted to a given web site, like this one:

    ffmpeg batch cut OR split site:forum.videohelp.com

    I'd like to break all my long videos into 3 minute or shorter segments...
    Most of my video is way shorter than that.. Golf swing video are seldom longer than 15 seconds..

    Shorter is better...

    If you want to split on scene boundaries, which most people would want to do, what I posted will not be of any use. Quite frankly, I don't think it will be of any use to the OP either because I can't imagine simply lopping off "x" frames or seconds from the beginning or end of a video will have any real usefulness.

    If you want to split on scene boundaries, there are dozens of products and also AVISynth scripts that can do this. They are not 100% foolproof, however, because scene detection logic can be fooled by objects entering the frame in the foreground, to give one example.
