Windows 7: Video Splitter

Video Splitter

I have a number of MKV and MPG videos that are joined features that I want to separate, however I have been trying out a few programs, and they either don't work, or lack the ability to locate the split point by visually browsing through the video.

I do want something that is freeware...is there something that will do the job?

Try Media Cope .

Set the start time and end time, and set the output format . It supports a lot of formats .

I just tried it, and didn't get far. I couldn't use the link that you gave, because the website was ultra slow to open, and when I selected the download, it froze at .1%. So I went to Major Geeks and downloaded it from there without any problem, except that the file size was ~.2GB larger than it should have been. That may be due to the fact that the installation wizard included an option to install some search toolbar...which I opted out on.

The first time that I tried to use the program, it froze the system when I selected a video file for it to load. On reboot, It tried it once more, and though it didn't freeze as before, and it did display the video, I found no means to determine the exactly split location by time. Therefore, I just stopped the playback at the desired point, hoping that I could instruct it to split there. However, while the video stopped as it should, the audio continued in loop, which continue even after shutting the program down. I stopped the audio by termininating something called mplayer in the Task Manager.

Before doing that, I went to the cutting screen, but nothing on it seemed to work. Maybe I'm just doing something wrong, but I found no help file. Do you have any idea of where I went astray?

I kept fiddling with it, and I think that I got it to work. Won't know until it finishes cutting the first video. I guess this is going to take longer that I hoped, because it appears that it goes through the file at normal playing speed.

I can describe what I do with this program . I open media cope, and then go the the Audio\video cutter tab. IN this tab, click on the open button .... a file browser appears. Select my desired file, and then select the starting point of the clip using the seek slider, and select the end point by the same way, that is using seek slider.

The next button is play selected, I usually dont touch it. The next is for the output format... select mkv or whatever you like. The next button is quality .... generally shows a text medium on it. I change it to same quality. Then it is the save button . click on it, and put the target destination of the output clip, usually it is desktop for me . The clip is processed then, and gives excellent result.

Hope it helps .

Edit : Longer encoding time = better output quality and the reverse. There are many a programs makes those things faster .... but the output quality is not upto the mark .

I did get it to split one joined video, but I don't know that I will have the patience to continue with it, because on the last one, it did as before and went into an audio loop when I selected the end point. I went into the Task Manager and killed the mplayer, which stopped the loop, but that was replaced by a loud buzzing sound that I couldn't kill until rebooting. I turned the audio down, until it has finished making that last clip, and it and the other video are good, but the problems that I'm having with the program are very annoying.

Update...not finding a better alternative, I went back to fiddling with Media Cope, and I found a solution. Just mute it before beginning a video, and it works great! Thanks for the tip.

I've tried Freemake, and I didn't like it. I can't remember now why, but I rarely make u-turns on a computer.

Everyone to his own. I've tried quite a few myself and Freemake Converter offers the simplest(if you want it to be) yet most complete solution I have found. It is also very fast with hardware accelleration. It can rip a full length DVD movie to mp4 in 45 minutes.
