Lossless video trimming

LosslessCut is a simple open-source video editor which enables cutting and trimming videos without any loss of quality.

The program imports videos via the regular File > Open dialog, or via drag and drop. LosslessCut's player is based on Chromium, so most browser-friendly formats are accepted (MP4, MOV, WebM, MKV, OGG, WAV, MP3, AAC, H264, Theora, VP8, VP9).

Standard controls enable playing the video, changing playback speed, skipping ahead to any given frame, or fine-tuning frame-by-frame until you find a specific point.

You're able to mark the start and end points with a mouse click or hotkey.

Clicking the camera icon saves the current frame, using the source file name and frame position to create a unique name. That's very convenient as there's no need to specify a new name each time: just drag the viewer to a particular frame, click the camera, and repeat as often as you like.

When you're ready, tap the scissors icon and LosslessCut saves the specified portion of the video without re-encoding it, ensuring there's no loss in quality.

Just like the frames, exported videos are given a name which combines the source name and the extraction times, like VideoClip.mp4-00.00.08.167-00.01.48.832.mp4. The very long timestamps don't help readability, but if you make multiple clips it might help you figure out which is which.

2.2.0

- Allow pre-formatting or pre-encoding the video for more format support
 

Verdict:

LosslessCut's interface needs some work. The menus don't have all the options you need, yet still include some that you really don't (Chromium's developer tools); some toolbar status details are clickable (OUT PATH), others aren't (playback speed, start/ end times), and overall it doesn't feel "finished".

But on the plus side, if you've ever used another trimming tool you'll already understand the key basics, and overall we found LosslessCut worked very well.

Windows 10 May 2019 Update ISO (build 1903)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows May 2019 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

May 2019 Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO will give you build 1903 which is the May 2019 Update.
