  1. With Videoredo not being available any longer, is there anything available that allows splitting and joining mp4 files simply and quickly?

    I've tried numerous programs that are all too complicated, too cumbersome or too slow when editing out commercials.

    My needs are pretty simple: quick movement of the frame pointer on large files and easy saving of selected sections.

    I did have a look at https://tmpgenc.pegasys-inc.com/en/product/tmsr6.html but thankfully, my VideoRedo is still running OK.

    Do you have VRD, because I was able to reinstall it successfully on my new machine recently with my licence key.

    As I recall, Cypheros TS-Doctor offers some of the same features as VideoReDo. TS-Doctor has a free trial so you can try before you buy.

    I've tried pegasys and about a dozen other free and paid systems. All are very cumbersome or not really all that usable for cutting commercials from a MKV or MP4 OBS capture.

    I've tried activating my VRD several times, but evidently the activation server is permanently gone. Not at all angry, as I had many years of use with the different versions.
    Maybe some creative soul will build a VRD clone in the future.

    None of those are really practical, in my view. It appears none will cut on the exact frame (important during ads); they only cut on the I frames.

    @Nicksteel, please post back if you find a good one.

    It's not important the problem be solved, only that the blame for the mistake is assigned correctly

    Only cuts on key frames.

    Thanks.

    I have. It seems primarily a reformat program. I did cut a portion of a MKV, but the pointer is not controllable with the mouse or keys. I really need a simple lossless output. It is about the best I've seen so far, though ...................

    Any current owner of VRD concerned about activation and support should check out subreddit r/videoredo , in particular posts by u/Dan203 who was the only employee of the company and primary programmer of the program. He kept the servers and forum going for the last year purely by unpaid volunteer actions. And hes planning to set up a server for activation now that the VRD servers and forum are gone, apparently forever.

    Looks interesting: "In version 2.0 we introduced MPEG-2 frame accurate editing. SolveigMM advanced technology keeps 99% of data and only transcodes a few frames at the beginning and end of the video segments, so that now MPEG2 files are also processed fast and lossless."

    But, even though it's free (time-limited) you still have to sign up! Why? Pity. Pass.

    SmartCutter from Fame-Ring, Works like a charm, it has a "get use to" period of its proprietary GUI, Once you get familiar with its functionality you're good to go, I've been using it for years, I occasionally use it now, my main use of it was to remove nude scenes from Blu-ray backups so I can watch the movie with the family, I would dump the m2ts file in it and it cuts through all the streams, audio tracks, subtitles everything with no loss, drift or delay, I then take the edited m2ts file or files (depends on disc) and put them back in the same disc image and save it using a disc image editor, the movie plays like the original with no problems at all.

    As Videoredo's programmer has now arranged activation for pre-existing purchases (very much appreciated), I am now able to install it on my new computer. It is unfortunate that future purchases of the program are no longer available due to the death of the owner.

    Thanks for all the suggestions.

    SmartCutter is the perfect tool, easy to use, intuitive. But for a few days now, idk why, SmartCutter crash a lot, more more lot than usual.
    People have some equivalent. cut on exact frame without reencoding (on .ts, mp4 file)

    I reply on videoredo's QuickStreamFix, especially via CLI, to fix a range of relatively frequent OTA capture issues.

    Unfortunately no other product seems to have that functionality, apart from TSDOCTOR which I tested and it appeared not to do all of the QSF things that videoredo did, although it does do some things.
    TSDOCTOR did pop up an unwanted window from time to time which was not a good thing when trying to run it using CLI in a scheduled task (a "batch job" in the old parlance, usually without access to window displays).
    I did post to them they may care to consider somehow acquiring the IP from videoredo now that videoredo is defunct, but saw no response.

    Cheers.
