DVBCUT is a Qt application that allows you to select certain parts of an MPEG
transport stream (as received via Digital Video Broadcasting, DVB) and save
these parts into a single MPEG output file. It follows a ``keyhole surgery''
approach where the input video and audio data is mostly kept unchanged, and
only very few frames at the beginning and/or end of the selected range are
re-encoded in order to obtain a valid MPEG file.
DVBCUT needs to create index information on an MPEG file first. Therefore, when
loading an MPEG transport stream file, it also asks you for a filename of an
index file. If you choose an existing file, it is loaded and used as index if
suitable. (That means, that dvbcut performs some sanity checks on the index
itself and also checks if the index describes the chosen MPEG file.) If you
select a file which does not yet exist, dvbcut creates the necessary index in
- -idx indexfile
- Use indexfile as index.
