I am trying to find the best way to automatically concatenate a large number of files that have been recorded with an overlap within them. In the process of 'glueing' the video files together, to get a smooth playback, I need to strip 5 frames from the end (or from the beginning) of each clip.

This post suggests a few ways of concatenating the files, and this post on processing a timelapse video has an excellent advise on using filters for truncating media. But I am wondering whether I could avoid re-encoding at all? All files are in the same format.

The ideal answer would include an ffmpeg command.

Thank you in advance!

  • Thank you, @Gyan, that is very close. I looked through the manual and couldn't find a way to specify a relative ("from beginning to 3 frames from the last frame") way of defining the outpoint. Is that possible if you don't know the duration of the clip?

    No, outpoint has to be measured in seconds from start.

  • OK, thank you! Will use workarounds and assumptions ;)
