I'd like to strip out the unwanted bits from my 16Gb recording of "Transformers" before I watch with the kids.

Is there a program out there that is up to the job of removing said unwanted bits, ideally while retaining the nice 5.1 sound?

Anything working nicely for someone today?

Thanks

Dale

Tried and failed: Powerdirector 8, Xillisoft video converter (most promising), VideoredoPlus

I've had some (limited) success with avidemux.

If you set both video and audio to COPY then it won't re-encode so there should be no quality loss.

The last time I tried I couldn't get HE-AAC audio working, but it's possible that's fixed in the latest version.

VirtualDub and VirtualDubMod are quite popular as well, but I haven't tried them.

Tell me if you find a good solution.

in the future, VideoReDo will be able to do it. Currently it's on closed alpha testing, but from what i've seen so far, it'll be worth the wait.

Wasn't transformers TV3?? If so then "most" editors should deal with it.....but you may need to split the audio/video tracks to dump the he-aac-lc track. just keeping the h.264 video and AC3.

if the file has no errors in it h264 cutter might work. I have used it before, but I found it was prone to crashing and stopping during output.

powerdirector - sorry, you have too few pixels sir (1024x768 min, display is 1280x720)
avidemux - crash after say 5 seconds?
virtualdub/virtualdubmod - avi only/abandonware?
videoredo - sorry thats h264 in there! Eeek!
showanalyser - not tried, enables editing with videredo, see above. Megan can stay.
xilisoft - converted a few minutes to mp4, terrible deinterlacing problems in result
h264 cutter - not tried, but that prone to crashing and stopping doesn't sound promising

Thanks for those suggestions, no solution so far...

If you're a masochist, you could try Cypheros TS-Doctor
http://www.cypheros.de/dvb_e.html
Start and end trimming is what it up to now and it is not GOP aware so it's not frame accurate, but it's quick and dirty.
It also repairs TS faults, as you would guess and handles our AAC-HE too

Let the pain begin

Do a "Cut" to trim the start and end and hit start to fix/Remux
then repeat "cut"'s on the fixed file to then save out the program between add breaks to separate files leave some Advert as a buffer on the head and tail as it's not accurate!
lastly use TS doctor tools, file, merger to rejoin the segments back together.

Its ok for a hack job, but I'm waiting for Videoredo

Since you are trying the lot give handbrake a go as well. I seem to recall it work ok(ish) when I was looking to cut out ads

Gave up editing as as couldn't be bothered keeping much stuff when you have pre-trimed stuff available.

Quite right with the publicly accessible version of videoredo. It does sound as if it has the best chance when the currect alpha is made available to the public. That's what I am waiting for at least. No solution for you right now tho...

Powerdirector almost worked. Got to 36% of that 16G file and hung...

Audio dropped back to mono too.

Still looking.

It may be a bit lame, but I recently used the Movie Maker software in Vista to rejoin the two halves of a Harry Potter episode from Freeview HD that had lotto in the middle... as well as chop the ads off the start and end of the two halves. I ended up outputting to a WMV at supposedly 720P and at first glance... it seems the same quality as the original. I only did it the other night so not sure about whether it kept the sound  in 5.1 . The writing out took ages but I just left it running and went to bed.

Hope that helps.

Cheers
