FFmpeg is not a file editor and therefore is unable to
"delete" something from an existing file.
Fortunately, FFmpeg contains an mp4 demuxer and
an mp4 muxer so you can create a new file (with
possibly very different properties):
> The appended span starts at 2 hours and 30 minutes and 53 seconds.
$ ffmpeg -i input -c copy -t 2:30:53 out.mp4
