Re: [opensuse] Again, trying to find a suitable video editor.
If you're simply re-formatting/converting, ffmpeg for sure.

If you're doing much else, well...  Not so much.

I had this second case come up with a relative on Windows 10 who'd previously
used a now removed-by-MS utility.  I pointed him to avidemux and this tutorial:

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
