MPEG Streamclip Video Editing Magic

For TEKB8T’s first post I had to highlight one of the handiest pieces of freeware I have run across. If you have ever wanted to do a little quick editing of a video file but lack the chops or the software, then today is your lucky day. I recently came across Squared 5′s Mpeg Streamclip a very tasty bit of freeware, that is a swiss army knife-like player,editor, and converter. The user interface is lovely, dead simple and for those of you running PC’s, yes you are also invited!

Supported Video Formats Include:
MPEG, VOB, PS, M2P, MOD, VRO, DAT, MOV, DV, AVI, MP4, TS, M2T, MMV, REC, VID, AVR, M2V, M1V, MPV, AIFF, M1A, MP2, MPA, AC3

So let’s say that you have created or downloaded a video clip and would like to edit a specific bit short enough to upload elsewhere or email. Basically, it can be as short as a 5 step process.

1. open file
2. play clip
3. set the “in”
4. set the “out”
5. save the edited file.

Mpeg Streamclip also allows you to pull down a video by just inserting the URL. You can also extract the just the audio to create a mp3 file.

It really is that easy and it really is free.
