Now that is neat - I'm not a Python person but what I think I'm seeing 
is use of the -ss and -endpos options to slice up the original file, and 
then use mencoder to put it back together. Very neat.

If its not too blasphemous, I'll have a go at translating into Perl (old 
dogs and all that :-) ).

Many thanks.
