Installing Avidemux 2.6.8

Ever since I changed from the Mac environment to Linux, I have been wanting to find a simple and quick way to save video snippets from video files that I have (avi, mov, mp4, mkv).

Is there anyone out there that actually does this with any success? On the Mac I used MPEG Streamclip with great success. I have been trying to install the latest Avidemux with no success. I tried compiling it from their website. I have also tried installing from ppa when I searched google. Doesn't work.

I am using Linux Lite 2.0. I just want a simple and straightforward way to select snippets from a video file and save those snippets to my HD.

I have tried the following:

Code: [Select]
avconv -i input.mkv -ss 00:27:20 -t 00:33:40 -c copy output.mkv

This works but I am not sure what would be a quick way to scrub the video so I could quickly identify the start and end markers. Right now I am using VLC player to search for what I want to mark. Pretty cumbersome. Is there an easier way?

Thanks so much!

Hello rmcellig,

you can use VLC to record, and also make your own templates in it for commonly used tasks, example I made a flv to mp3 one in the past.
