Hi all,

Can anybody tell me that how can I split a video file without re
transcoding it.

Yes there is a command:

ffmpeg -ss <time1> -i <input> -acodec copy -vcodec copy -t <time2> <output>

But the confusion I am having is, does above command doesnt at all do
transcoding hence consuming the CPU?
