ffmpegHow to split video into multiple parts


At the moment, the only reliable option is to manually call corresponding commands to cut off parts from the original video. In this example we cut 3 video parts 5-seconds length each:

ffmpeg -i in.mp4 -ss 0  -t 5 p1.mp4
ffmpeg -i in.mp4 -ss 5  -t 5 p2.mp4
ffmpeg -i in.mp4 -ss 10 -t 5 p3.mp4
# ...ctrl + c
-i in.mp4

input video file

-ss

set start position (in seconds) to cut the part from source video

-t

set resulting video part length (in seconds)

p1.mp4

name of the first video part
