Editing out the padding on video files (or commercials)
I'm curious as to what people are using to edit out the padding at the beginning and end of recorded shows.
In most cases, I don't mind the extra bits, as the file is erased after watching, but for videos that I want to keep, it would be great to edit out the extra video content without doing re-coding of the source.
Are there any inexpensive video tools for manually cutting out the padding and/or commercials without recoding the source.
