4 Free Applications to Split Video Clips


Avidemux is a free video editor designed for simple cutting, filtering and encoding tasks. It supports many file types, including AVI, DVD compatible MPEG files, MP4 and ASF, using a variety of codecs. Tasks can be automated using projects, job queue and powerful scripting capabilities.

Avidemux is supports many popular video formats such as mp4, mpg, avi, ogm, mkv, flv. It is relatively simple to use as well, making it the best when splitting files in mp4 format. 

Avidemux has several tools to benefit its users. There are preset output formats under the 'Auto' tab - these include Apple Ipod, Iphone, Sony Playstation Portable, DVD and Microsoft Zune. Be aware that the program may crash occasionally, so always remember to save your project before you save the video. Aside from these preset formats, one can also choose the custom video and audio format for the video from the dropdown menus on the left-hand side.

The software also has the ability to join videos, which is convenient when there are several different sections of one large file that one needs to cut out and then put back together. But keep in mind that to join video files the size and formats of the different sections need to be the same.

AVISplit Classic

AviSplit Classic is an easy-to-use tool that enables you to split an AVI file into multiple parts. The interface of the program is plain and simple. You can import a video by using the file browser or the "drag and drop" method). You can select the preferable splitting method (optimal, median, smallest) or just input the number of parts you want to divide your movie into (i.e. custom splitting).

Furthermore, you can preview the video, go to beginning or end of it, select the output base name and directory, and then initiate the splitting process. Once the job is completed, a window pops up to inform you about the success or failure.

AviSplit Classic is also a video joiner so you can put some AVI pieces together.

Note that the program uses a low-to-moderate amount of system resources and can take a very long time to complete a task. However, the quality is usually acceptable.
