FFMPEG Command to Split MP4 Video With Same Quality Based on Start & End TimeStamp Duration Full Project For Beginners



f you want to just split the video without re-encoding it, use the copy codec for audio and video. Try this:


ffmpeg -ss 00:00:00 -t 00:50:00 -i largefile.mp4 -acodec copy \
-vcodec copy smallfile.mp4


Note that this only creates the first split. The next one can be done with a command starting with ffmpeg -ss 00:50:00.


This can be done with a single command:


ffmpeg -i largefile.mp4 -t 00:50:00 -c copy smallfile1.mp4 \
-ss 00:50:00 -c copy smallfile2.mp4


This will create smallfile1.mp4, ending at 50 minutes into the video of largefile.mp4, and smallfile2.mp4, starting at 50 minutes in and ending at the end of largefile.mp4.
