Basically I was following https://video.stackexchange.com/a/15701/26767, which states:

This should work faster...

ffmpeg -ss 1:00 -t 5 -i in.mkv -ss 2:00 -t 5 -i in.mkv \
 -filter_complex "[0][1]concat=n=2:v=1:a=1" \ 
 out.mkv

Is it really working? Or how can I make it works for nowadays ffmpeg?

First, I found the command there is incorrect, as I'm getting this:

$ ffmpeg -codec copy -i inp.mp4 clip1.mp4

Unknown decoder 'copy'

I found this works: ffmpeg -i inp.mp4 -codec copy clip1.mp4

Then when I want to put things together, I got Unknown decoder 'copy' again:

$ ffmpeg -i inp.mp4 -ss 1:09 -t 76 -codec copy -i inp.mp4 -ss 2:55 -codec copy -filter_complex "[0][1]concat=n=2:v=1:a=1" out.mp4

How can I make the 5-year-old answer works for nowadays ffmpeg without re-encoding?
