editing software:
super awesome - http://www.kdenlive.org/
super easy - http://www.openshot.org/

like twixtor: http://slowmovideo.granjow.net/

merge two or more video files into one file WITHOUT re-encoding (fast):
Code: Select all
MP4Box -cat infile-1.MP4 -cat infile-2.MP4 -new output.mp4
there are other ways to do this, but MP4Box gives the best compatibility with other applications.

extract a section of video WITHOUT re-encoding (fast!):
Code: Select all
ffmpeg -ss 0:7:00 -t 0:2:00 -vcodec copy -acodec copy -i input.MP4 output.mp4
that would produce an output file that's two minutes long, starting at seven minutes from the input file. note that times are hours:minutes:seconds, or just seconds. because this doesn't re-encode, it relies on key-frames in the source video, so it's usually not accurate to the second.

Me neither, except in brief testing as a possible converter for folks who don't have something paid. I consider it more of a transcoder/splicer, but I suppose it has its uses. Has some pretty lofty goals but certainly isn't anywhere close yet. But hey, its Linux, so I figured you might need a few more options. Thanks.
