Perhaps a simpler solution than video editing is to use an mplayer .edl file to skip sections of the video you do not wish to watch:

You could try Cinelerra

I found this on the forum v2.1 ( latest v2.2 stable) , not sure which build of Puppy your using:

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=46346

If that fails to do the job, you could download it on a livecd from here:

http://cinelerra.org/getting_cinelerra.php

Or try Puppy Studio:

ffmpeg command line could probably do it - don't know about other gui video editors but maybe some of them require you re transcode the file after editing ( not good on low spec / slow systems ) worth checking out Avidemux to see if it supports the formats of your video files as you can edit / cut / join them with out re transcoding.

AviDemux would be perfect Smile

If you need addition codec info on your files, try MediaInfo:

I have use this in another distro in the past. We do NOT have a PiTiVi.PET in this community though. But, its an open-source package for Linux community. We might find it extremely useful as we march into the future.

PiTiVi - a free and open-source video editor for Linux

Here to help

http://linux.die.net/man/1/ffmpeg

-i = input video file
-vcodec copy -acodec copy = Do not re-enecode / transcode
-ss = Seek to given time position
-t = Duration

For instance this will cut first 15 minutes of file.
Code:
ffmpeg -i input_file.mp4 -vcodec copy -acodec copy -ss 00:00:00 -t 00:15:00  output_file1.mp4


will cut 15 minutes of file from 18 minutes in.
Code:
ffmpeg -i input_file.mp4 -vcodec copy -acodec copy -ss 00:18:00 -t 00:15:00  output_file2.mp4

PostPosted: Sat 25 Aug 2012, 13:45    Post subject: AVIdemux  

Have not ever used AVIdemux. I do have a need to combine 2 camera videos into a single video. And, I also would like to clip segments of my family videos and piece together into a single video.

Quesiton
    Does anything discussed in this thread lend itself to that function?
Thanks, in advance, for any information

AviDemux will do this, if the files are in the same format then it's inbuilt wizard will recognise this and invoke 'Smart Copy' for joining files together; no need to encode as it will do a direct stream copy.
