I've found this often. When you split an avi or video file it doesnt split exactly where you state the cut point, but at some point which must be a start of segment or something. So you cut 2 minutes in, but it cuts at 1min.55 for example. Is it because of the small split files of around 1-2 minutes or can I get a better program

 

Currently using avidemux 2.6.8

You can get better programs, however they may well be paid for software that will cut or split exactly where you want.

If you want free only, have you tried Windows Movie maker? You can get that off the Microsoft site. Though the output file types are short of choice with that.

I have tried quite a few free video editors, and to be quite honest I don't think much of any of them and for a quick edit the Microsoft Movie Maker is about the best.

 

If you don't mind paying, there is Lightworks which I have tried which can do a tremendous amount in editing and not just splitting or cutting, however it does have quite a steep learning curve, though there are many Youtube or other written tutorials available for it.

Ther are of course many other editors, each with their own speciality and again I tried a few, though not as many as the freeware due to cost of course and though Lightworks is a yearly subscription type program, I found it the best.

HJ split does not seem able to split by timeframe. I'll try movie maker eventually, but at the moment I want to resist having to install windows essentials. I tried Avisplit, but I've already had a trial with that one

I am using VidepPad Video Editor, it splits videos perfectly and has a lot of other useful features.
