 * keywords:   => segment split

 That's what the segment format is supposed to do:
 ffmpeg -i input.avi -f segment -segment_times 10,20,40,50,90,120,180
 -vcodec copy output02%d.avi

 Note: -segment_times option is still not integrated, but I have a patch
 waiting for review. The only problem is that the input file is required to
 have enough key-frames set at the right point, and for accurate splitting
 you may need to transcode and use -force_key_frames (and there is no
 magical way to get around that, since a segment must start with a key
