Some people mentioned avidemux as an app for cropping mpeg4/divx
files so I checked it out. It seemed to edit well enough but the
file that it produced won't play nice with mplayer.
When an mplayer index is genereated and saved the computer stalls
out for the longest time before beginning playback (the wings fall
off) sometimes requiring a hard reboot, sometimes eventually playing
the file and sometimes killing mplayer.
The file in question is 8.6 GB but the larger unedited source file
was 17.6 GB and mplayer handled it with a minimum of fuss. Is there
a known issue with mplayer and avidemux edited divx files, or just
files generally? Are there other linux options for simple editing.
