I just use ffmpeg to remove adverts from my recordings.

ffmpeg -i mov.mp4 -ss 01:00 -t 60 -c copy cut.mp4

-ss (which means start stream) will start at 1 min into the video (so removing the beginning).
-t (time duration) will stream for 60 seconds
-c copy will keep the encoding and not re-encode the video.

So this command will output 60 seconds of video starting at 1 minute in. I use the slider in VLC player to find the exact times.
Then just run the command again until you have all the segments of video between the adverts.

Then join the videos together with concatenate command in ffmpeg. (Remember to specify -c copy to not re encode the video).

You could write a bash script and input the times. Then it can cut out the sepcified sections and join them at the end.

Yes, this involved procedure works, but I have to add another step: a quick pass over the video stamping the time on the display, because otherwise there are errors.

I just hopped that on the XXI century there would be simple software to do it with click click the mouse, in Linux.

Even if the GUI is just a frontend that writes a script for ffmpeg. That would be very wonderful, I could then use any needed extra switches to my heart happiness.
