       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 place.


       -idx indexfile
              Use indexfile as index.

              Do not show the graphical user interface, only generate an index.
