Hi, splitting a large video in to equal minutes may be possible with many converter or video editing tools.
But what i want is ,
The video of a 2 hour video, splitting it to say , 30 minutes and the remaining last part as the reminder of the last part and keep the file, as one.
For eg , if the video is of 2 hours and 10 minutes duration, , say 130 minutes, I want it to split the same in to 30 minules and keep the remianing as last splilt.
Here i get 4split videos of 30 minutes and the remaining 10 minutes as last part.
The duration may he hr mm ss
The exact video is dependent on the video running time.
Here, i want the file to be created should contain athe split videos and part videos but inone file of the same format.
If the tool is present in the video help forum software section, ple give the link
I want the output lilke this.
If i open the file, first split, second splilt, thrid split, fourth split and fifth split videos ,will be shown to be clicked if possible.
If this can be done on a x264 mp3aduio mp4 file

An alternative is a PLAYLIST.
It is a bit difficult to understand exactly what it is that you want to achieve, even though it is described in several sentences with different wordings, as each sentence contains confusing or even contradictory statements, all adding up to blur the intended purpose.
MKVToolNix for instance allows to split a video file after specific durations / timestamps, and has an option to “link files”, but if the whole file is split then resulting chunks are all linked, that defeats the purpose of splitting in the first place as noted above by “jagabo”. Unless you want to keep only some of those chunks in the output file, and discard others ? Again, it's very fuzzy.
Perhaps it would be easier to solve the issue if you could post screenshots, or sum up the intended outcome with a sort of symbolic / mathematical language (for instance : have a 130min file, want to split it into 30 minutes parts A / B / C / D / E, then want to output A / C / E as one single file...).
Re-reading it once again : it would seem like what you want is : split a video file into individual 30 minutes chunks indeed, but only the last part should be split as a larger than 30 minutes chunk and include the remainder of the input file which is less than 30 minutes — 10 minutes in your 130 minutes example, so the 4th and last file should be 40 minutes instead of 30 minutes. Then, if that is indeed what you want to achieve, MKVToolNix also has an option to limit the number of output files, so for instance you may specify a duration of "00:30:00", then specify a maximum number of 4 files, and it should output 4 files, the 4th one having a duration of 40 minutes (in this example). Of course it would only work for files with a similar duration : if a file has a duration of 105 minutes, with the same settings, you get a 4th segment that is 15 minutes (instead of being linked with the 3rd segment as a 45 minutes file) ; if an input file has a duration of 149.99 minutes, you get a 4th segment of 59.99 minutes which may not be suitable (depending on what the actual purpose is beyond splitting video files into smaller chunks).
hI, jAGAbo got my point.
I reconsidered it, as a correct 30 minute cut would cut the audio also , giving meaning less.
So, here is what I want.
The original file , ie large file running about 2.10.40 seconds say, will be split manually to two parts , meaning fully about audio .
I want both the files may be chaptered, a new to me, individually with a break between the two. So that i view the first part give some interval and then see the other part.
If both files could be seen as two chapters , if i open, i could click the first file and then the second file.
Just splitting the files in to two would create more files in a serial that may contain 50 episodes.
If suppose, it is to be run continuously , then i have to fast forward the play to the desired position, which may be difficult to do.
In a nutshell, what i want is
original video file contains , saved as two chapters or whatever be the term, to be saved as single file.
You want chapter points within the file. So it remains one file with x number of chapters. No fast forward required just press the Next button as long as the media player remote has it. If you want to split the file, that means 2 or more files (that's what the word "split" means).BeyonWiz V2 PVR ~ Popcorn A-500 ~ Samsung ES8000 65" LED TV ~ Sony 75" X9500H ~ Windows 7 64bit ~ Yamaha RX-A1070 ~ QnapTS851-4G
Sorry, I have to split...
Why don't you just use a media player that remembers where you left off? All the decent players have that option.
So is it about splitting videos into multiple parts or making chapters?
If it's about chapters, try:
Mkvtoolnix-GUI - output tab - generating chapters (chapters in fixed intervals) - interval (00:30:00)
So is it about splitting videos into multiple parts or making chapters?
Hi, I thiink repllies could be polite instead of freezing.
I remember seeing opening a cd or dvd and opening the cd screen, there would be 3 to 4 movies that automatically wait for clicking. If i click the second the second movie plays and then close back to this screen of selection.
My terminology may be difficult or different , but i will try the mkvtoolnix.
I selected up to interval . the next menu is multiplexing. ok
selected destination folder and then click multiplexing ok
i have given interval time wrong and fixed it and it created chapters 1 and 2. But while playing video, it just plays normally.
Could i make the chapters and give a break of say one or two minutes between the chapters so that i could just close the video now and later i could select the second chapter.
what i want is the output file as one, but the video to be meaningfully cut or split in to two parts of one hour or so.
i know nothing about chapterisation in video
But once again, why don't you just enable the player's "remember file position" feature? With that you can quit at any time you want and the next time you play the file it will start playback at that time. Most players have that feature. For example Media Player Classic Home Cinema:

The feature has slightly different names in different players. But it's found in MPCHC, MPCBE, SMPlayer, VLC. Potplayer and KMPlayer have a variation of this where they automatically resume the last video when started.

It exists with authored titles & their players (DVD-Video, Blu-ray). Perhaps that is what the OP ultimately is wanting.
Sorry for late reply as I have not received the mail alerts of the subsequent replies.
In normal usb supported tv, i want a two and half an hour video to be split in to two videos, not by actual splltting of videos but by actually ending at the 1st part of the duration that i fix it and then play the rest without resorting to use fastforward.
Jagabo, you are right that what i want is chapterisation and i used it.
But the media i want to play is the tv, media
Willl the Chapters be shown in a video while playing in TV
only few menus are available.
If a video has two chapters, would that be shown in the tv browser
Will the movie end on the duration of the 1st chapter , so that i can click on the next chapter
in the same video say mp4file.
As I said in my previous post, that i have seen a dvd, when i clicked open show 3movie files and i could click on one of the three.
There is always a way of forwarding your video to the point and continue.
Chapterisation is what i needed, i think, but will that show as chapters in the tv browser thro usb supported tvs
Hi, jagabo, one more thing, where those chapter will show when running the video.
I suspect you want it to behave like when you play a DVD in a standalone DVD player, if that is your objective then basically you are out of luck. You could author a DVD and play it in your standalone DVD player or get a high end media player like DUNE or Popcorn (if you can find one). Maybe Nvidia will do it? I doubt if the built in media players in TV's will either show or support Chapters. On you PC there are many VLC shows chapter points along the time line. My Popcorn A 500 supports chapters on both DVD's and Bluray whole disc rips complete with menu's. a limited one in respect of Blu ray but reasonable. I think you are on a quest that doesn't have an outcome that is acceptable.BeyonWiz V2 PVR ~ Popcorn A-500 ~ Samsung ES8000 65" LED TV ~ Sony 75" X9500H ~ Windows 7 64bit ~ Yamaha RX-A1070 ~ QnapTS851-4G
HI, thanks for the reply.
Could a video on whole, be divided in to 2 separate segments .
I mean a kind of two files in a folder, not actually.
i want it in the videos.
I am poor at the exact terminology of what is used in video.
This segment, i came across while using any video converter
MPCHC playing a movie with chapters. The little black dots on the progress bar are the chapter markers.
The closest thing you're going to find is a DVD/BC ISO image (as suggested by Cornucopia) with each segment as a separate title (not chapters). But your TV probably won't play ISO images.

Thanks for the kind reply jagabo.
Your clue I read and will try in due course of time
Yes ofcourse, samsung tv does not support the iso format as you say.
Thanks for alll the replies.
So, i think there is no way to make segments of the whole video in to two parts and play what we want.
if i could not , do what I want, can i have a blank screen of 5 minutes , of the same size, say pixel, of black colour with all original aspects lilke frame rate speed etc. vlc or any video converter or any other program.
I mean , if the video timeline is 2 hours, can i have a blank black screen of the same height and breadth of the video, with nothing written pitch black running video for five minutes so that the original timeline increases to 2 hours and five minutes or , whereever i want the blank video in the timeline

Yes, in theory you could split the original video into two parts, then join them back together (without reencoding) with a 5 minute black segment between them. Getting the black segment encoded with similar enough settings to join may be tricky though. It's much easier if you're willing to reencode everything.
Can I. Have
The title song playagain in the middle portion of video instead of black. Will it solve original aspects in everything. Please say how icould do that
Sure. Just copy the title song, then paste it into the middle of the video.
As stated by jagabo in #26, the difficult issue is joining the black video section with the rest and keeping the file playable, without having to re-encode everything.
If you can use the (end) credits instead of a black frame, it isn't actually difficult (because the encoding parameters will match).
