> Hi all,
> As we know, unless files are in privileged raw format such as mpg, we cant

> One more thing ,Please correct me if i am wrong, If I am trying to cut a
> segment of a 3 hrs video from 20th minute to 30th minute, ffmpeg will have
> to parse the video till 20th segment and then start processing. If thats
> true, then that is bad.
> What I would Like to ask from community is Can somebody please let me know
> following things.
> 1) What all formats can be stitched together by simple binary
> concatenation?
>  2) Is there any generic command line tool available which can split and
> merge any formats?
