I only need a simple editor for streams recorded from TV. I want to
remove the start lead, the tail end, and the commercials in the middle.
It also has to keep the two audio tracks (Spanish and English) and the
subtitles. Best if it doesn't recode the video stream, for speed - just
remove sections, copy the rest as is.

I got, offlist, the idea of testing a Windows app, Smart Cutter for DV and DVB (<>). It is payware, but has a free trial version (I don't know what are the limitations of the trial version).

It does not recode. You mark the points for removal, then generate a resulting file. I'm testing it inside a vmware virtual machine. Marking the edit points is a bit slow, but once done the recording is very fast, being basically a file copy operation.

What I have not being sucessful yet is in removing sections, the result has the entire stream. I don't know if I'm not doing it right or that's a limitation of the "trial" version. Ah, apparently it is a water mark, says the web page - but I see no water mark in the result.

I'll test a bit more.

If I can make it work, the next step would be to run it in Wine instead.

According to the help, I mark a start point, an end point, then hit delete to remove that section. It doesn't, instead it deletes the mark points, and the conversion applies to the entire stream.

This software is the exact thing I want, but it fails to work.
