GOPchop is an open source tool for losslessly cutting and merging hardware-encoded MPEG2 video files
GOPchop is an open source tool for losslessly cutting and merging hardware-encoded MPEG2 video files. It limits cuts to I-frames or group-of-picture (GOP) boundaries, thereby preventing artifacts and degradation of quality by not needing to re-encode.
GOP boundaries occur frequently enough (especially at scene boundaries), that GOPchop's method is quite suitable for many applications. It tends to be most handy for people working with streams created by hardware encoders.
Here are some key features of "GOPchop":
Trimming recordings to desired start/end times.
Extracting short clips from longer recordings.
Editing commercials out of recorded TV programs.
Splitting .VOB files from dual-layer DVD rips so the content can be put on each side of a single-layer DVD-R.
What's New in This Release:
GOPchop is nearing the 1.2.0 stable release.
This version even includes some experimental MPEG1 support from Brent Baccala.
Several small fixes were added since the 1.1.6 release's changes to preferences handling. Download it and give it a spin!
