Dear Olga,

I purchased this for Euro 7.99 last night using paypal and up till now my order has not been verified by Digital River - share it. Is there anything you can do to get me my confirmation email with the paid licence key? Meanwhile, I have no choice but to install this GAOTD free version first, just in case...

Late to the party, but if anybody's still hesitating about getting this program, don't. I've been using it for years, on a near daily basis. Over that time, I've had several conversations with Olga, and have always been extremely satisfied with the support provided. They provide regular updates, too. Can't endorse it enough.

No problem loading and running on 64-bit Win 7 system.
The program worked quickly and accurately to cut last 12 minutes out of a 2hr 12 min
MPG2 video. Definitely a keeper.
Will probably buy the $10 uprade.

I very seldom comment but.............

Must say I was pleasantly surprised and this came at a fortuitous time as I am in the process of copying news footage of the recent cyclone Marcia in North Queensland for friends up there that have had no access to any media of any sort since the event.

Does exactly what is says and I was more than happy to take advantage of the Au $12 offer for the slightly uprated version. I may not "need" the extra features as such but when a quality product is offered I have no hesitation in rewarding the company involved with a token purchase.

No doubt it will come in handy in the future for removing all the ad's in the downloaded videos I occasionally get off certain sites.

A big thumbs up from me.

But I do totally agree with XP-Man...... I too am not a spring chicken and adjustable font sizes would be a excellent addition.

I wonder

Why todays GAOTD version of VSHE cannot be installed as Portable Version as it is possible
in TRIAL web VSHE version?

I see some minor differences in building version but GAOTD installer is less functional.
It pushes me to check why/if you know what Kris Kaspersky and Skylarov brothers mean ;-) /.

Anyway thanks for opportunity :D

Thank you, Solveig MM, for letting me try this program.

I uninstalled it again, though, because it was far too complex for me. I'm perfectly fine with your freeware AVI Trimmer + MKV 2:
http://www.solveigmm.com/en/products/avi-trimmer-mkv/

It's idiot-proof for somebody like me. For those having trouble with today's GOTD, you might want to give that easier one a try. Note, though, that you can only trip .avi and .mkv files. It totally fits my need.

For the record... made the purchase to take advantage of frame accurate, but finding out this program likes to drop the audio.

Split an older Mpeg2/Mpeg1 video/audio file into filename_0001 and 0002. Filename_0001 lost its audio in the split.

Split a M4V file into 4 slices keeping 2 and discarding 2... both kept their audio, then joined these 2 splits together, lost audio on second portion.

Tried this on two of my 3 Win8.1 64bit computers.

Have sent problem to support earlier but have not heard back as of this note.

Dear Olga of Solveig Multimedia,
I do appreciate your effort to reply to our questions and explain issues, which is not that common practice of software providers.

However, it seems that your company tries to introduce the program in a premature version, which needs further reworking. So many reports about program crashing is an indication that the code misses proper error handling, which – in the world of programmers – is a shame. The program should display relevant prompts/messages, such as "this file format is not supported", "reinstall your codecs", etc., rather than crash and display messages quite "mysterious" to average users.

I hope you’ll come out with a more mature version in the future and we all will enjoy praising your software.
Regards,
Marek

Thank you so much Solveig Media and GAOTD! Solveig MM Video Splitter is the BEST video splitter on the market, PERIOD. I used the previous version 3 and it was the only video splitter that could handle 25GB bluray movies AND preserve audio/subtitles. Best of all, splitting is done without reencoding - preserving total video fidelity and achieving blazing speed. Unfortunately, my version 3 stopped working after a couple of months and could not open video files anymore. I am glad to have the latest version for free!

It seems that it has installed correctly on my XP SP3, but after opening two quite big video file (both over 700 MB and .ts format) todays program doesn't want to run any longer, it hangs and I have to close the program forcely by Task Manager.
I thought to reinstall suggested codec K-lite for instance...
One other small video ( almost 100 mb size) file in .avi format opened normally and the program worked.
What is the problem?

From others comments, this looks like a very nice program BUT..in system requirements, I noticed Windows Media Player was one of them. WHY? There are some who wouldn't use WMP to save their life. Almost any media player should suffice. Was ready to download and then most likely purchase after testing. Being forced to use WMP, or even have it on my system is a deal killer. Now, I'll have to pass on this offer. Too bad...

Reply   |   Comment by Mr G.  –  5 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+2)

Oh, no! Was about to purchase the full version, but reading your post (Thank you for it, Mr G.),I decided not to. Why? Because Windows Media Player was always causing me problems and delays at startup and thus, I have practically crippled it to a non-functioning state. I am not going to reinstall or repair my WMP, just to get this GOTD working, so it is a no go for me. What a pity, when people bundle their programs with other softwares or make them interdependent. I don't know if this is laziness or lack of creativity or just a necessity, but it seems this lady has gone to sleep now and wont be able to answer me before the deadline (whether WMP is really needed or not) and thus, I am off, too.

I installed and cut an AVI from 1 hour to 4 minutes with only the desired clips, it plays fine in VLC PLayer but says it needs to rebuild the index. Good program as far as i can see and i am considering buying the 10 dollar version today. Does anyone know the answer to the index rebuild thing?

I downloaded this and it installed okay (Win64u), I loaded a mkv file with no issues and started setting edit points, then while selecting the 5th region to keep I got an endlessly circling cursor and the window became unresponsive (I waited 90 mins before posting), so I've gone for a thumbs-down, but it certainly used to be a good program, just maybe not in the GAotD version...

Pretty good software, but a lot of people don't know that VIDEO TO VIDEO software (converter/joiner/splitter) also does this for free.
There is a full install and a Portable version here:

it works, and sometimes it doesn't .. i have 3 XP systems,

ps: codec update is a good place to start

Thank you for favoring us with immediate and responsive details and solutions. This shows exceptional customer service. This teaches me more about a software vendor/producer than any number of paragraphs expounding on program features.

In other words - sincerely -, "Thank you Olga. We are lucky and you are amazing."

If you activated this programme at your Admin level and then created a short cut from say a non admin level, the short cut when activated may ask for a registration to activate the program. Not sure if you tried to do this tomorrow, would it reject the registration you just got from GAOTD.

Ohh, no..... This isn't another case of a developer never testing their software in a *Standard (limited) User* context, is it??
I'm just about to install the program, but I don't want to go through the whole procedure, only to find that it runs only in my administrator login.
I/we administer from and admin account. I/we work at everyday tasks as a standard user.
Olga, if so, if your program won't run after registration/activation for Standard Users, would you please provide the registry keys that we can copy into a Hkey\User branch?
Once again, to any developer who ever reads this post: We are NOT all administrators.

Tried editing some xvid AVI and some AVC H.264 AVI files and This program failed to load any of them, throwing somme kind of unhandled error and crashing without presenting any error report, just the program has stopped and is checking for solutions to the problem. Also fails with mkv and mp4, even a little 20Mbyte sample.mp4 file caused it to crash! Also MOV files from a cannon digital SLR camera.... This makes it completely unusable here, it must either have some major incompatability with my existing codecs/direct show filters or those caiming to have got it working are lying, which is unlikely. If this was the FULL unlimited home edition I would have felt more inclined to determine which codec/filter is causing the program to crash as the reward of having it fully working might be worth the effort but since this is a feature limited version I do not feel the rewards warrent the effort required to debug this program on my system for the developer and just consign it to the pile of failed unanounced beta test versions GAOTD has been landed with.

Hello TK,

Regrettably I've not yet reproduced this issue at our end.

Possibly Video Splitter was not installed correctly or there are problem codecs on your computer.

Have you already tried to reinstall the product and reistall codecs?

After Video Splitter uninstallation please check if all files were uninstalled from the folders:

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Solveig Multimedia
and
C:\Program Files\Solveig Multimedia\SolveigMM Video Splitter Home Edition

If there will be any files in these folders please delete them manually.

Then please install the product again.

Please try to reinstall you codecs with e.g. K-lite codec pack.

Will it help you?
If not could you please send to support(at)solveigmm(dot)com the uploaded input file? You can use e.g. Dropbox.com or Google drive to upload the file.

Olga,
SolveigMM

Olga, I did some debugging but the logging option does not expose any errors, I did notice that you include part of Elecard AVC HD splitter deeoder and the program tries to find executables that are supposed to part of the Elecard program but don't exist because these components were transplanted into the solveigMM package not built to be part of the package. I do not think that is the cause of the problem as everyone that does not have the Elcard AVC HD player installed will see the errors in a trace of the programs activities.

Sorry I am not willing to throw a mass deluge of codecs at my system in the vague hope that it might obscure a problem I am experiencing with this program since it is more than likely that throwing something like K-lite codec pack will change my codec priority and preferences and mess other things up. Now if you would like to provide a debug version of the unlimited program setup so that it sends you or logs locally a detailed report of the machine state and what the program was attemmpting to do when the program stopped, I might be more inclined to invest more time in resolving the problem properly and not by just throwing 3rd party mass codecs at the problem.

I doubt that will tell you anything useful.

For now VSDC Free video editor fills my current video editor needs even if it lacks the almost lossless frame accurate editing of some video formats offered here.

With logging enabled in tools menu the last line in the file SolveigMM Video Splitter Home Edition.log is always:

CMpegPlayerAdv::CreateFilters-OUT#regular

It could be crashing when trying to build the output renderer but as there is no way to expose the Filter graph being attempted it is not possible to say.

Hello,

Video sequence encoded usually consists of groups of pictures (GOP). GOP consists of Key frame (that is first one in GOP) and delta frames. Key frame is encoded independently as a statical picture but delta frames are predicted from K frame and can't be decoded without K frame.
While the GOP accurate editing the trimming result will be started always from the key frame that can be not the exact frame you have selected as the fragment beginning. So you can get additional frames at the beginning of the fragment in the output file that were not included for saving.

While the frame accurate editing you always get what you have selected as the output. So the fragment will be started with the exact frame you have selected.

By the link below is the picture that also helps to understand the difference between frame accurate and gop accurate editing.

Hi me again - Physical dual-boot (Win 8.11 & 10 -9926) Sorry about yesterday - seem better today - I am a little confused, Would this be considered a (say) DVD Ripper, allowing you to cut the whole thing or just parts there-of? Anyways, installed on both my partitions, shares the files that need sharing & maintains the files that need to be attached to their respective OS's. I really like the fact that you have kept a banner of pull-down "WORD" menu & not thrown it out - VERY NEEDED - Thank you. Over-all - I tried three files in each (small clips from You-Tube) avi among them - I had no prob. Thank you again Solveig Multimedia & GOTD & I'll see you again tomorrow. BTW - it's a keeper for me too. B4N

Thanks to Solvieg Multimedia + GOTD.
Tested.
Result: Good.
Will keep it.
It has a Yandex map feature, which I have not yet figured out.
But Yandex maps are pretty good and has major cities' details.

I tested the software with MP4, AVI (xvid in AVI container) and FLV videos.
I can confirm that MP4, AVI and FLV videos work flawlessly with this software.

The menu commands take some understanding. Maybe the programmer got carried away with computer-speak. I think the Russian programmers got their English confused.

When you select a portion of the video within markers, it is shown with golden yellow band. You can choose from the top row menu to [Cut out Selected Fragment]
You can also do a mouse right click to choose [Cut out Selected Fragment]

Now one would have thought that when you cut something out, it means you don't want that fragment. WRONG. The Russian programmers think that this means you want the part that you [Cut out Selected Fragment] and not the rest of the video.
You click on [Trim] button.
It then saves the [Cut out Selected Fragment] in a separate file.
You can output it to your choice of selected folder.
The name is the same but with a suffix 001. Then 002, and so on.
The software is smart enough not to over-write your original source video.

If you intended to REMOVE the fragment that you had highlighted, from the video, then you use the menu to choose [Invert Time Line Fragments] or click on the relevant icon shown as a circle cut by diagonal. Or use context menu to choose the command.
This will invert your selection.
When you click on [Trim]
It will remove the [Cut out Selected Fragment] and save the rest of the video.

Since this menu is so confusing, I have not figured the difference between [Keep Selected Fragment] and [Cut out Selected Fragment]. They have the same result.

Maybe something lost in translation from Russian to English.

Hello and Good Day to everyone!

I have a question : recently, I was upset because I deleted some files on my Android Device.
I purchased a software from Wondershare (Dr Fone)
It recovered somes files.

But they are in a strange and odd format : M4A "

Does anyone knows if this kind of format is readable with this Video splitter?

Forgive me please is my question is a blunt but blonde ( BBB ) question ^^

@vendor
1. would be fine, if it would work properly,but unfortunately crashes on windows 7 ultimate 64bit when importing e.g.mp4 or mp3 files (even the microsoft inbuilt example mp3 music)
only importing of wmv-files worked properly
2. what kind of user policy has the full version - e.g. licensed per user / per pc, online hardware footprint activation (what when changing pc or formatting harddisk,..)?

Reply   |   Comment by giveawaytrial  –  5 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+7)

Dear Sir/Madam,


According the crashing for MP4 files, possibly some components were installed incorrecly.
Please try to reinstall Video Splitter with uninstalling it at first from your computer.
After uinstallation please check if all files were uninstalled from the folders:

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Solveig Multimedia
and
C:\Program Files\Solveig Multimedia\SolveigMM Video Splitter Home Edition

Then please install the product again.

Also the crash can happen due some problem codec installed on your computer. Please try to reinstall you codecs with e.g. K-lite codec pack.

Will it help you?
If not could you please send to support(at)solveigmm(dot)com the uploaded input file? You can use e.g. Dropbox.com or Google drive to upload the file.

According the crashing with MP3 files, I've reproduced this at our end. This is the bug, please take our apologies.
The full version works correctly with MP3 files.

>>2. what kind of user policy has the full version – e.g. licensed per user / per pc, online hardware footprint activation (what when changing pc or formatting harddisk,..)?

The license is for single user that means that a single copy of Solveig Multimedia software can be installed on and used with only one computer. When multiple copies are necessary, each computer must have a separate copy of Solveig Multimedia software installed.

If you has formatted hard disk then you need to reinstall the product and register it with the purchased license key.
If you would like to move the registered version from one computer to another, please uninstall it at first and then install and register the product on another PC.

Olga,
Solveig Multimedia

I thought that this would be just the program I have been waiting for. Installed and activated OK, changed font colour in settings, then tried to open an avi file. Program crashed! Tried several other avi files to same effect. Rebooted PC and tried again. Would not open any avi files on my WIN7 system. Uninstalled :-(

PS A short primer on why frame accurate matters

Video is encoded as a series of frames, made up into groups called groups of pictures (GOPs). The first frame in each group is a full frame, the whole picture as it were, with the other frames in that group only recording changes - a bit like full backup vs differential backups:

IxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxIxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxIxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxIxxxxxxxxxxxxx etc where I is a full frame and the x frames record only changes.

The problem comes when you want to cut on a x frame. Non frame accurate editors can't do it. They have to edit at the GOP level. If the GOPs are quite long, as they can be, especially but not only in mp4 video, then you can't cut where you want to cut.

Frame accurate editors fix this by re-encoding the relevant GOP so that in effect the x frame you want to cut on becomes a full frame. So if you wanted to cut in the the middle of the second GOP above, what you would get is:

IxxxxxxxxIxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxIxxxxxxxxxxxxx etc

The other GOPs are then simply copied, which is why frame accurate editors are fast - they only re-encode GOPs that need to be re-encoded.

It also means that editors like Solveig MM's do not offer the eatures many have become used to in video editing like scene fades and other transitions, rotations, colour and contrast/brightness correction, logo removal or watermark insertion plus numerous other timeline related effects that can be done frame accurately but not losslessly.

Lossless only works where either your video clips are perfectly recorded or you don't care if the splices have messy lighting changes or the camera angle is not exactly right, or you dont want to add some text to the video or remove an object from some frames. Theoretically an editor program could mix recoding where effects and transformations are applied to the timeline and recode until the next i-frame (key frame) and continue losslessly until the next edit or transformation/effect is encountered and so on. I don't think this does this but cannot tell as it does not work on the system I have tried it on.

If I interpret the chart on the Solveig page showing the difference between today's giveaway ("Home") version and the full version (for $10), (link given in Comment #7 above), it looks like the only true difference, other than no support and no upgrades for the free version is:

The paid version has frame accuracy (cuts to a single frame) for these file types:
MPEG1&2
MP4
MOV
FLV
AVCHD
The free version only cuts to nearest key frame on those file types.


Both versions have frame accuracy for AVI, MKV and WMV file types.

Is that what it looks like to everyone else?
Not sure if I need frame accuracy for those file types for 10 bucks.

Reply   |   Comment by Bob Retelle  –  5 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+37)

Having tried it on MP4s the 'accuracy' of the free version appears to be to within a couple of seconds, rather than key frames! However for wmv files it is spot on!

Reply   |   Comment by Anthony Haynes  –  5 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+29)

I think the "couple of seconds" issue you are seeing is due to the Group Of Pictures limitation. The $10.00 upgrade should fix this if you are interested.

Just checking user reviews about Solveig MM Video Splitter on some forum and found most users' satisfaction and they were mainly impressed by its ability to create lossless output . But also few expressed difficulties with Avi and Flv files.

Okay, taking the oppertunity to try this editor , I also found it as an effective program which actually does what it promises .
Alongwith video files It can even split audio such as MP3s, WAVs etc. But it supports limited formats.
'Drag and drop' method for importing files is supported. Frame-by-frame mode for trimming is available. An audio silence can be set for a specific fragment.
The rest of the feature s are as usual (encoding, decoding, previewing etc ). All in all this is handy and quick tool for cutting clips almost without loss of quality.

Installed and registered without problems on a Win 8.1.3 Pro 64 bit system.

A Russian company from Tomsk with name, address&phone and a picture of the owner. The company is on the market since 2003. We had a a previous Media Splitter on 2006, long time ago.

Upon start a resizable interface opens, on my screen nearly unreadable - white on grey:
http://i.imgur.com/4iKK1Jj.png (A dear in the dawn in front of my office window)

You can change the color in the settings, but not the font size:
http://i.imgur.com/ngUqt8g.png

The program splits the video automatically in 15 sec slices, this makes it easy to define the parts to cut. The cut out can be adjusted to the frame.
It is not a converter, you cannot define an other output forma, than the input is. But you can select audio only or video stream only.

In the tools, you'll find a join manager, too. ->splitter&joiner.

In my short test, it does what it claims. It works fast and is easy to handle.

I'll keep it, because of its fast handling of deleting unwanted scenes.

Reply   |   Comment by Adif  –  5 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

Hello Adif,

The Giveaway version supports editing of FLV files with GOP accuracy. You can find out about the difference between GOP and frame accuracy at this page:

http://www.solveigmm.com/en/faq/video-splitter-inaccurate-splitting/

In some files you can get not accurate results due the GOP accurate editing, that allows saving the fragment that starts from the key frame. If the file you edit have one or several key frames and the fragment you have selected is between two key frames where the end position of the fragment is the end of the file, then in such cases Video Splitter will keep the whole file.

Olga, that page on the differences between Group-Of-Pictures and Frame-Accurate editing demonstrates where different cuts take place, but it doesn't say anything about the result of the different methods of editing.
Could you explain further, please?
Does it mean patches of green static, or jumpy playback?
What happens?

Reply   |   Comment by Aster Clarke  –  5 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+23)

When they refer to "Group of Pictures" they mean what is usually referred to as "Keyframes".
Video compression methods generally only give you an actual full frame every few frames, these are called "Keyframes".
For the frames in between the keyframes, various algorithms are used to calculate the "difference" between those frames and the last keyframe and only the data describing those differences is saved to the video file not the full frames.
This can save a tremendous amount of disk space over saving all those frames as full frames.
Then the decompressing algorithms in the playback codec use the intervening data to recreate the intervening frames based on the keyframe when you play the video.

Various means of determining when it's time to make a new keyframe are used, from just a simple basis of x number of frames have passed, so it's time to record a new full frame as a new keyframe, to complex algorithms which detect things like scene changes or changes in brightness which would make it hard to reconstruct a frame based on the old keyframe.

The whole point of this exposition is that "frame accurate" trimming lets you designate ANY frame in the video and the cut will be made at THAT SPECIFIC frame. What that actually means internally is that the editing software will start at the last keyframe, find the frame you want to cut at, reconstruct that frame, make the cut, and then generate a NEW keyframe AT THAT POINT. That means when you play the video back after cutting, the cut will happen at precisely the frame you wanted it to.

Cutting at "Group of Pictures" means the actual cut will happen only at the previous keyframe. The editing software will find the frame you marked as where you want the cut, but if that frame isn't a keyframe it will go BACK to the previous keyframe and make the cut THERE, throwing away all the intervening frames. It's quicker and simpler because the editing software doesn't have to regenerate anything, but it means when you play the video it won't be cut at exactly the point you wanted, but some number of frames before.

In many cases it may not make any really noticeable difference. In others, you might lose a small bit of dialogue along with the video that was discarded.

Unable to install as the program aborted the installation itself.

Not too bothered to be honest as have a perfectly good Free program that does the same more or less, it is called Avidemux 2.6 and is available at Avidemux.org.

Thank you for your response to my problem, in an attempt to obtain a screenshot I ran the setup program again.
My very old installation (five years) of XP S3 this time quite happily accepted it without complaint.

Very pleased that it did as after a quick test on a number of video files (FLV, AVI, MP4) was very impressed with the ease-of-use.
At 72 years old I do find the time above the frames difficult to read, if when I hover my mouse pointer over them the option for them to be magnified would be a great help.

Thank you again for your response, much appreciated.
