NAME

       oggCut - extracts parts of an ogg file (.ogv, .ogg and .oga)

SYNOPSIS

       oggCut [options] inputfile outputfile

DESCRIPTION

       oggCut  creates  a  new  ogg file named outputfile as a subpart of the original file named
       inputfile

       oggCut is able to cut video (theora) only files, audio (vorbis) only files or  files  with
       both video and audio streams.

       The  start and end time for the cut area must be given in milliseconds with the options -s
       and -e.

       As a video stream consists of I‐frames (which are full pictures) and P‐frames  (which  are
       delta  pictures  to  the  leading  I‐frame) the oggCut algorithm searches for the first I‐
       frame. If a video file would start with a p‐frame, the player is  not  able  to  interpret
       this  picture,  as  the  leading  I‐frame (on where it is based) is not available.  oggCut
       starts the I‐frame search at the start time given by the -s option. So  expect  a  shorter
       video time than the calculated seconds for the new file.

       oggCut  does not do any reencoding, therefore the output quality is completely the same as
       from the input file.

       For those involved into the ogg container format: The file is cut on packet basis, not  on
       page basis.

       There is another tool called oggCut out in the internet with a different synopis. This one
       has not been written by the author of this tool you are actually using.

OPTIONS

       -s     Cut start position in ms. If the input file is a video file, the  cut  area  starts
              with the next keyframe found. Default: 0

              Example: -s 5000

       -l     Length of the cut area in ms. If -e is also given, the length is ignored.

              Example: -l 10000

       -e     Cut  end  position in ms. If -l is also used, the end position is preferred. If the
              end position is set to -1, the end of the stream is assumed.

              Default: -1

              Example: -e 20000

       -i

       -o     Input file and output  file  set  (alternative).   These  parameters  can  be  used
              alternatively. They are overwritten by the arguments after the options. If there is
              one argument given, it is used as the input file (and overwrites a file given  with
              -i).  If  there  are  two  arguments, the input and output files from the -i and -o
              option values are overwritten.

EXAMPLE

       oggCut -s 1000 -e 21000 myVideo.ogv myOutput.ogv

       Creates a new video called myOutput.ogv from the video myVideo.ogv starting after 1 second
       ending after 21 seconds
