- Part 1. How to Cut Video in VLC
- Part 2. Using Command Line to Split the Video
- Part 3. Wondershare UniConverter (originally Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate)
An average user can easily use this video cutting functionality to save or share it. The steps are simple and easy to follow.
Step 1 Open the video with VLC player and go to view menu to open Advanced Controls.
Step 2 Using the status bar navigate to starting of point of the video and click on record button.
Step 3 Now play the video to reach the end part of the video. To stop the recording, click the record button again. Your video will be saved to default save location for VLC which usually My Videos on Windows.
This method is nearly the same for both windows and Mac computer. Just know the default save location of videos on Mac and windows as they differ.
Using Command Line is a great way to split the video with simple few lines. This method is only for the advanced users as it involves a good understanding of commands and video formats etc. In this method, you will be using command prompt to open VLC and Terminal in case of mac. They are already available on your system. You can find them under programs in Windows or search ‘Terminal’ in Mac.
Step 1 Launch command prompt for windows and terminal for Mac. As we are using command prompt you will have to direct the program to the location where VLC is installed on your system. Usually for windows it is C:Program FilesVideoLanvlc.exe and for mac, /application/utilities.
Step 2 Let’s assume you are using terminal. After you have opened the vlc use the following commands to cut a video.
Important thing to notice here is that you will have to enter the name of the file that you want to cut correctly in “filename=”, you will have to specify the start time in “start=” and enter the interval up to end of the video.
Make sure you know the basics of command before using this method.
What do you do if you’re not able to follow the complex instructions above? Command line interfaces aren’t for everybody and can significantly waste your time. You will probably be better off doing something else unless you’re trying to make a career in tech.
