Hi, I’m totally new to this.  I don’t understand how to use ffmpeg, but I have a decent understanding.  I have searched all over the internet and have mixed results regarding the particular script I’am looking for.

I have downloaded ffmpeg and accommodating programs.  I tried to run a few scripts but I don’t understand how to tell the scripts where to look for the files I need edited, along with where to export the results of those actions to.

What I would like to do is edit some video files that I have in a batch.  I do not want to run ffmpeg on individual files.

I will have a total of 10000 - 17000 mpegs that I need to execute my script on.  All of these files will be located in 1 folder on the same hard drive

For all the files, I want to cut off the beginning (1 second of time) as they have information tagged in the beginning of each file that I don’t want presented in the video.

They are all MP4 Files.
Your help is appreciated.  Thank you
