    How do I remove a 20-30 second clip from a larger video file and just save the 20-30 second clip as its own file?

    What if I don't have Quicktime Pro?

    Well, originally a .VOB from a DVD. I converted it to .avi using FFMPEGX but I guess I could reconvert it to any format. Why? Which format should it be in?

    Split video in Mavericks

    Apparently, MPEG Streamclip's split video functionality no longer works in Mavericks.
    Is there an alternative (free, that does not re-encode the video like Movie Player does)?

    DETAILS: Specifically, "Streamclip -> Edit -> In" just brings cursor back to 0 second (instead of marking the "in" point).
    Other functionality (such as "Streamclip -> File -> Export") seem to still work.

    If it will play in Quicktime, then as per post #2.

    Quicktime (or iMovie etc) re-encodes the video
    (thus takes forever to clip long videos. In addition, will loose some quality).

    Ahh. You didn't say which movie format you were using.
