I thought of something this morning. Now if you had a cli media player
that could play from a given starting point to a given end point in a
video clip so you could do a quick demo kind of visualason of your
"cliping" ideas with a shell script.

player -from -to vide1.avi;
player -from -to vide2.avi;
player -from -to vide3.avi;

MPlayer can set a start point with -ss option but no end point as the
ffmpeg -t option can when converting with ffmpeg. Can ffplay set a
start point and an ending point for playing a part of a video clip?
other thoughts on my idea?
