VidCutter It is a program for multiplatform video editing, so we can also install it on our GNU / Linux distribution. With it you can cut and join video clips in a simple way thanks to its intuitive graphical interface. The developers have used Qt5 and Python for their development, and it uses the magnificent features of the powerful ffmpeg tool on which it is based to operate in the encoding and decoding of video elements, supporting popular formats such as FLV, MP4, AVI and MOV. .

The user interface that VidCutter presents is customizable by the user, so you can use different visual themes and a large number of configurations to adjust the available tools and the video editing environment, adapting to your taste and needs. The changes do not require additional configurations to work, so the user experience will be as productive and easy as possible. You will simply have to mark the beginning of the video in the time bar and then the end to cut it and save it ...

You can also cut cut video clips, making your compositions easy and fast, even rearranging the clips to our liking. The cuts will be precise thanks to a technology called SmartCut to improve what has already been said. Among its functionalities we also find that its playback engine allows you to see the result, thanks to the hardware acceleration system based on the libmpv library and video processing supported over OpenGL. As for video export, it generally allows you to save the video in the same format as its source.

All this in software that is open source and free, and that you can find its code in GitHub in case you want to take a look or download it directly from the web.

    Hello, I have not understood well what to cut pieces of video. I understand that the beginning of what you want to cut is marked, the end of what you want to cut is marked. Press / choose «cut / delete».
    I can't find how to do it.
