Hi all,

This just showed up in this month's Linux Gazette.  I thought it might 
be useful if you want to do basic video editing from the console.

Video editing from the command line 
<http://linuxgazette.net/178/brownss.html> By *Silas Brown*

This is an article about basic video production in MPlayer. MPlayer has 
its own "edit decision list" facility, but that is limited to deleting 
scenes from an already-made movie; it cannot be used to take scenes from 
more than one source file and to sequence them in a different order, as 
is often needed in production. However, by running several MPlayer 
commands in succession you /can/ do this on the command line, and you 
don't need particularly high-spec equipment or dexterous mouse skills or 
even eyesight to do it (some eyesight is a plus but you don't need much).
