LosslessCut — Simple and ultra fast cross platform tool for lossless trimming/cutting of video and audio files. Great for saving space by rough cutting your large video files taken from a video camera, GoPro, drone, etc. It lets you quickly extract the good parts from your videos and discard many gigabytes of data without doing a slow re-encode and thereby losing quality. It extremely fast because it does an almost direct data copy. It uses the awesome ffmpeg (included) for doing the grunt work.Features

The LosslessCut interface is based on Chromium libraries, uses HTML5 player to play video (as well as audio), uses FFmpeg capabilities to cut video/audio files (a set of libraries and a command line utility that allows you to record, convert and transfer digital audio and video in various formats). Work in window and full-screen mode is supported, settings are saved in the file:
LosslessCut works fast because it does not transcode or decode video/audio, which is especially useful when working with large files and if necessary, cut video/audio without loss of quality. You can add a video / audio file from the menu or by dragging and dropping (Drag & Drop / Drag and drop), supports MP4, MOV, WebM, MKV, OGG, WAV, MP3, AAC, H264, Theora, VP8, VP9, etc.
Cropping in LosslessCut is done in three steps, you need to set the beginning and end of the fragment, and then export it.
If the directory for the exported fragment is not specified, it will be saved in the directory with the original file under a different name (the original file remains unchanged in any case).
Supported creation of screenshots in JPEG format. Control is possible with the mouse and/or keyboard shortcuts.
