Same problem here. The program no longer opens and says you have to buy it after 10 uses.

I originally downloaded this software when it was offered here as the giveaway of the day Feb. 9, 2013. I used it about 4-5 times and was very satisfied with the end result. Today I tried to use it - I couldn't open it. Got a message saying it can only be used 10 times. ?!?! If this is the condition of this software why wasn't this stated on the page somewhere when I downloaded it? I always thought all software offered here as giveaway of the day was always good to use with no time limitations.

Download, install and register without any issues. Tested on 30-minute MP4 (300MB) file on a P4 Windows XP PC with 3GB memory. Selected portion of video at start that I wanted to remove and the last portion of the video to be removed. Ran using default settings and was impressed how quickly the software processed the MP4 file and the quality of the resulting file. Removed +30MB from the original file - no loss in video quality or audio quality (audio still in synch with video). A must have program for my video arsenal. Thumbs up. Thank you GAOTD and Boilsoft.

Downloaded, installed and registered without any problems. Tried an AVI file first but changed my mind and tried opening an MP4 instead. The program crashed. Re-opened the program and retried the MP4 video. I selected the beginning portion I wanted cut as well as the end I wanted to remove. Ran the program with the default setting and was very impressed how quickly it processed the file. Even more impressed with the resulting file - cut off at least 35MB of unwanted video. Great program. Thumbs up.

Install on WinXP and works fine.

I like two things about the installer:
1) Serial number included. No need to provide email address.
2) No dodgy browser toolbars included. They are a real turnoff.

@ Bob Retelle

for AVI & MPEG try Video Edit Master 2.0 from http://www.masterwareroom.com/ as it lets you mark parts you want then joins them. it will have to drop a frame or 2 at the joins, but that's what I use it for!

freeware can rule!

Very handy utility! Tried it on several MP4s. Great for quickly and easily creating a lossless section of video you want to keep for whatever reason. Really fast too. I'm glad I got it.

If you want a high quality MPEG editor, check out VideoRedoTVSuite. Not cheap though but, in my opinion, well worth the price. I've been using their editor in it's various versions for more than a decade.

not free, but far better alternative (that also works with MS MediaCenter old and new files) is VideoRedo. You can define multiple split segments and it has built-in commercials finder (pretty accurate).

When installed on XP SP3, it works as expected on .asf, .wmv and .flv, however multiple attempts to split a .mp4 file failed with an "Err dup track 2" error. Is anyone else getting this error? Any advice on getting this to work on .mp4 files?

I'd like to know the answers to 2 issues that are not reflected or improperly stated on the Boilsoft web site

--- From their web site page at http://www.boilsoft.com/videosplitter/

"Powerful and EASY to use
Split large video files, even larger than 2GB.
Support drag-and-drop.
All encoders/codec are built-in."

Question: Larger than 2GB. With the size of HD video files, often larger than 2GB and often even larger.... (4GB - 5GB), what is the limit to the size of the original file? (If it was unlimited, then why raise this limit issue?)

Question: "All encoders/codec are built-in." If all "codec are built-in", then why on the FAQ page does it say:

--- From their F.A.Q. page at http://www.boilsoft.com/videosplitter/faq.html

"1. Can you tell me the reason why I can't open my video files?

please install the K-Lite Codec, which can be downloaded at:
http://www.free-codecs.com/download/K_Lite_Codec_Pack.htm
The standard version is recommended.


2. I can't join, split my AVI files!
The most common reason is that the proper codec can’t be detected or install properly."

------------------------------

Surely Boilsoft would like to answer these questions, as these issues do reflect on the attention to detail as reflected in the Company. Things like this tend to make me shy away from any developer, retailer, etc.

When you're editing or converting video the software works similar to a player -- as long as it can display the picture it can edit &/or re-encode it. When you're trying to get away without re-encoding things become a lot more difficult, so if you often work with video it's probably worth your while to hold onto the Boilsoft Video Splitter.

Splitting video files, along with re-writing video into another type of container [e.g. .mov to .mkv or .avi etc.] can be a bit hit or miss because of the nature of the video format standards themselves -- rather than deal with exactly how video should be encoded & stored in a file, standards [specs] tend to focus on player compatibility instead, so with video shot with a still camera for example, it's common to be able to play those files just fine, but working with them may fall somewhere in between a nightmare & a challenge. Long story short, some video will open in some apps & not others, & in those apps that will open your video, re-writing the file without re-encoding may or may not work. Now if the video giving you headaches came from a very common camera then you can probably Google & find out everything you need to know about processing that video, but when the original source is unknown [as is often the case], it all comes down to trial & error. The more apps you have of this sort, the more trials you can perform, increasing your odds that *something* will work. :)

Not all types of video can be split or joined or edited without re-encoding -- it depends on the internal file structure for that format. Today video is most often encoded using key-frames [though they may be called something else, like the "I" frames used in DVD mpg2], meaning that every so often you have a complete video frame stored, with every frame in between storing or recording just the changes from one key-frame to the next. If your video uses key-frames, & if it's in a format that can be cut without re-encoding everything, if you try to cut that video at some point in between key-frames, the last frame [& usually all frames since the last key-frame] will have to be re-created & at least that portion re-encoded. Some software will just go to the nearest key-frame & be done with it, while another app might re-create & then encode those frames -- creating/encoding just what has to be created & encoded is called Smart Rendering. Smart Rendering usually depends on being able to match both the encoder & its settings, so when you find apps that can perform Smart Rendering, it's not unusual for it to *only* work if/when that video was encoded using that app in the 1st place. Cutting [or joining] a video file on the nearest key-frame isn't usually a big issue as long as you know to expect it, & as long as the video has a reasonably short time between key-frames -- most encoders I think will automatically insert a key-frame when the scene changes dramatically, which is likely just where you'd want to cut the video anyway, e.g. at the end of a scene &/or just before a commercial.

As far as different software tools go, some companies like Microsoft & Real developed basic tools for splitting &/or joining [or otherwise re-writing a file], & that code has been incorporated into different apps & code libraries often targeting video enthusiasts -- among pros there's not a huge need or market for this sort of thing so you won't often see it in an editing app like Premiere Pro. Enthusiasts have also written their own apps, often for dealing with their own particular want or need, so you see apps like mkvtoolnix & its offshoots & GUIs, and MPEG Streamclip etc. Over time portions of their code has been incorporated into the ffmpeg libraries, &/or brought together & possibly supplemented in apps like today's Video Splitter, but as above, in my experience what works best usually comes down to what will work with the video files you're trying to work with.

If you do have problems with a video file or files, remember that to be able to work with a video file you may have to 1st *repair* it, that is re-write the file so that internally it conforms to what an app expects, & you may have to re-write the video file using another type of container [you'll find repair utilities at sites like videohelp.com]. Bear in mind that the video stored in a file is very often separate from the container holding that video -- the VOB files on a video DVD &/or .m2ts files are maybe more well known examples, with others including .avi, .mov, .mp4, .mkv & so on. Conforming to what an app expects is [sadly] a gray area -- in some cases where you've got particularly difficult video you may try a dozen apps, finding that less than 1/2 will accept or take your video file, & out of those maybe one will do the job, re-writing the video file without errors [or at least without errors that prevent it from working].

Again, if you know the source of the video, Google, e.g. if you've got a camera that you used to shoot video & you're having trouble with that video, try & save yourself some time & effort by searching [including your camera make/model] to see if someone's already done all the hard work, figuring out the procedure.

Tried this because I need to cut Mpeg m2v files. Sadly, it doesn't support cutting those without re-encoding.

Software did NOT cut the video where I told it to.

Software changed the aspect ratio from that I set.

Will not be keeping this.

Installed without a problem. I confirmed it would NOT play a mp4 file. Also, there is no frame advance forward and backward making it extremely difficult to make accurate trims. The split into equal parts feature, IMHO, is useless. What I need over and over is to remove the beginning and end of clips and save the file without re-encoding. I will uninstall.

This is quite good software for what it does. Lossless editing is always good. It is a little limited in comparison to freeware I know though.
The best freeware I know for video splitting is Audvidder. It supports all the most used file formats and it's lossless.
It can also join files files, but that is a little buggy.
Be aware that this app is quite old and has been replaced by the shareware EZR Videostudio which costs 15 US$. The only download site I know of for the last version is Download.com

A much newer app is machete lite from Machetesoft.
It can only take AVIs and VMWs, but it can split,cut and join files.
It too is lossless.

Running Win 7 32bit SP 1
Downloaded, installed & activated using the provided code without any problem = Thumbs up

Program is small, no any fancy stuff, program GUI is not re-size able,
works pretty fast (in the no-encoding mode that is) and delivers exactly what it promises...
Definitely a keeper at least from my personal point of view.
Thank you GOTD & the publisher for this little gem...

17.@16, when you launch the program, the top portion contains “Boilsoft Video Splitter 7.02.1″

i have no gripes against this fast program except the fact that a program which can split videos must also be able to combine videos.
(the developer offers a separate paid video joiner program)

I do not see the version number.

Current release @ price above is Video Splitter v7.02.1

What version is this?

Am I right in thinking there is no lead in type of thing; it just cuts at point A and next section starts immediately at point B, no fade in/out?

If that is the case it's usefulness is compromised.

Can anyone clarify? The webpage and reviews thus far have not covered these points.

Version Number and answer re. fade in/out, please GAOTD or Developers?

I have an older version offered here a while back and it is capable to handle only one cut at a time. Hence, if you want to cut out a few episodes from the movie, rather than only one, you need to cut, split, then cut another episode etc. Very annoying. Is this supposedly newer version capable to handle more cuts and splits at a time? No where have I found any info about the version of this GAOTD? Could anyone advice the version of this software?

Installed on XP sp3 without a problem.
I tried a few short video clips of different formats. It worked quickly and flawlessly on all of them including FLV and MP4.
Maybe Asharif at #1 used an older version as I also got 'preview' and 'play' on these formats, also I am not sure why you would need a 'batch' facility as cut-off time would be surely be different on each video.
The only gripe I have with this software is the screen size. It is stuck at 'small size' without even a 'full-screen' otion. It is also too expensive at $35. $15 is a more realistic price for this kind of software.
