Developer website: Mean

Avidemux is a free video editor designed for simple cutting, filtering and encoding tasks. It supports many file types, including AVI, DVD compatible MPEG files, MP4 and ASF, using a variety of codecs. Tasks can be automated using projects, job queue and powerful scripting capabilities. You can even cut .ts video streams, recorded by a satellite receiver, without re-encoding the video stream!
