If you want to just split the video without re-ecoding 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 ...

I regularly use mp3splt. It is an open source program for Windows and Linux, and includes a gui (which I don't use, so I can't comment on it). This is the commandline I usually use to split a podcast into 6 minute segments: mp3splt podcast.mp3 -g %[@N=0,@o] -o "@n @f" -t 6.0 -t 6.0: split every 6 minutes -g %[@N=0,@o]: for every section use the ...

There is a freeware Windows file splitter called HJSplit 2.4 Available here. The website claims it can split files of any type and size, but 9GB is a big file.

You can use the 'wincmd' command to move to different windows as if you're pressing CTRL+W. vim file4 -c 'split file2' -c 'vsplit file1' -c 'wincmd j' -c 'vsplit file3' This will arrange the files as: file1 file2 file3 file4 How it works: opens file4. Splits horizontally so file2 is above it. Splits vertically so file1 is to the left, moves to the ...

There are two ways to split an MP3: Decoding into a wave, splitting, and re-encoding. This is the method Audacity uses and results in lost audio quality. Splitting the MP3 directly. You have a lower resolution for where to split, but the result is no loss in audio quality. I've used MP3DirectCut with relatively good success. Usually you will want to ...

The files have likely been split by a compression program. 7-Zip should handle them fine. They could also have been split with hjsplit or a similar tool, but 7-zip should handle the files.

You have existing.zip but want to split it into 50M sized parts. zip existing.zip --out new.zip -s 50m will create new.zip new.z01 new.z02 new.z03 .... To extract them, you should first collect the files together and run zip -F new.zip --out existing.zip or zip -s0 new.zip --out existing.zip, to recreate your existing.zip. Then you can simply unzip ...

There is a program called mp3splt - I specify start and end time of the part I am interested in. It is also possible to split automatically with silence detection.

If you're not afraid of the command line ffmpeg is the tool to use. It's a bit complicated, but most free tools are based on ffmpeg because it's the most powerful one out there. This is a sample of a command to split out 30 seconds of a video. ffmpeg -i input.avi -vcodec copy -ss 00:00:10:15 -t 00:00:30:00 output.avi If you're on windows, it's a little ...

Possibly GNU Screen with vertical split? It should already be installed on your Mac, type screen in the terminal. You can also do this with emacs by itself.

Another is GSplit - according to their site it can split very large files (larger than 4Gb <-- since they crossed the 4Gb limit, I guess they can do 9 Gb as well). But, another thing - you say you want to split it into smaller parts so you can open it up and look at it. That sounds like a very big perhaps log file. In any case, for opening large text ...

Either rar to split it into parts, or extract the individual files from the iso with something like imgburn and make a new iso at the destination.

If Mac OS X's split acts just like the GNU Coreutils split, cd to the directory you wish the split files to reside in and then run the following command: split -b <size> /location/of/big/file

Do Window -> New Window, which will give you a second window open to the same file.  Move/resize them so they are side by side; then scroll them independently.  (Verified in Adobe Reader X and Adobe Reader XI.)

It depends what kind of files they are. RAR and ZIP files often come as multi-part archives which need unarchiving by a suitable utility (WinRAR, 7-Zip. etc.). If the file has been split on the byte level into parts you can use the unix cat command to combine them again: cat file.jpg.* > fileCombined.jpg

It's not as easy as the command you mention in your question. With that being said there are easy ways to do it. Audacity is one free program that allows you to split mp3s. It's relatively easy to use once you get a hang of the interface.

Check out Large Text File Viewer, it's great for things like this. Most archivers and splitters will separate the file into pieces which cannot be used to read each piece of data independently and properly, you need to extract them all to get the file back. Large Text File Viewer is free and portable.

This is what wildcards and brace expansion are for. See if echo file.bz2.part-* returns the filenames in the desired order, and use cat file.bz2.part-* > file.bz2 if it does. Otherwise, figure out some other more complex expansion that does.

Most file archivers, such as 7-Zip, WinZip, and WinRAR, allow you to split an archive across multiple files. If speed is important, you can try disabling the compression part of the program. On GNU/Linux systems, you can use the split and cat programs from the coreutils package (e.g. split -b 4294967295 FOO /media/FATDISK/BAR to split FOO into BARaa, BARab, ...

Following your template, you could vary different properties, such as colorcolumn: augroup BgHighlight autocmd! autocmd WinEnter * set colorcolumn=80 autocmd WinLeave * set colorcolumn=0 augroup END This will color column 80 on your current window, while disabling it on the others. It's a bit less jarring than setting/unsetting line numbers. ...

I just had a similar problem having to move several TB from one NAS to a different NAS with no backup/restore capability that would allow me to just feed 1 set to the other. So I wrote this script to run 1 rsync for each directory it encounters. It depends on being able to list the source directories (be careful to escape ARG 3) but I think you could set ...

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned mp3DirectCut. Does just what you want and doesn't re-encode. It's my go-to for this sort of thing. Freeware.

Redirection (the > sign) is handled by the shell, and it can only output to a single file, the file you name. Omit the >, so that /home/ubuntu/PL/trab3/rc_ is passed to split as a command line argument, so that it can use that as its output prefix.

I wrote a script using this information that automatically splits the screen as I wish: vimsp.py file1 file2 / file3 Results in ----------- |f1 |f2 | | | | ----------- |file 3 | | | ----------- Also, putting / in front of all files makes them all split vertically instead: vimsp.py / file1 file2 file3 ------------- |file 1 | ...

The GNU Core Utils package (available here for windows) includes the Split utility. It works well for me :-) The --help documentation is as follows: Usage: split [OPTION] [INPUT [PREFIX]] Output fixed-size pieces of INPUT to PREFIXaa, PREFIXab, ...; default size is 1000 lines, and default PREFIX is `x'. With no INPUT, or when INPUT is -, read standard ...

Here's a one-liner, you just need Ruby and FFmpeg installed: ruby -e '(0..4500).step(300) { |x| system "ffmpeg -ss #{x} -i in.m4a -c copy -t 300 out-#{x}.m4a"}' Simply execute that in the same folder where in.m4a is. It'll copy the audio bitstream, so executing this will probably take less than a few seconds. To explain: 4800 seconds is the length of ...

I ended up writing a small Python 2 script to achieve this. # Author: Alex Finkel # Email: alex@finkel.net # This program splits a large binary file into smaller pieces, and can also # reassemble them into the original file. # To split a file, it takes the name of the file, the name of an output # directory, and a number representing the number of ...

Briss might be just the tool you need. Make sure Java (JRE) is installed, and be sure to read the linked reviews on the download page, although the program's quite easy to use. This project aims to offer a simple cross-platform (Linux, Windows, Mac OSX) application for cropping PDF files. A simple user interface lets you define exactly the crop-region by ...

If the phone wiring is decent you might get away with abusing it for 10 Mbit Ethernet. 10 Mbit, not 100 Mbit, not 1000 Mbit. This is because normal Ethernet cable for 10 and 100 Mbit connections uses 4 of the 8 available wires, and those wires are specifically twisted to prevent signal interference. For anything reliable: no. Do not use old wires. Use new ...
