I like it.

Is there any way to specify the points of start of file and end of file?

The ones I am cutting need the start and end trimmed but don't need any trimming 
in the center, and it is at best difficult to hit the i at the end of the video, 
from what I can see, it looks like the easiest way is to mark the points with 
mplayer and then manually edit the file to change the points to be correct, and 
then run mencoder with edl and -oac copy -ovc copy to do the cutting.
