The previous poster maybe is not familiar with this kind of software, which has more than 1 big "START" button. The "idiotic ridiculous way" is just like old mark style...
The picture denotes that knn have not even looked at the settings: on Extras > Settings... >General tab, under Generic behavior you can set the "Default mode for new projects": Cut mode - Cut areas are defined, or Scene mode - Scenes are defined.
For me - I use it ONLY to cut DVB-T ts records - this program is very good, despite it's simplicity. Also, it seems to be reliable, it can cut without problems and without crashes, even if the ts files are partially damaged. And how can somebody rating "value for money 5 of 10", for a FREE software? If you don't like it, or if you are unable to make it working, just move on to other software, that's so simple. I must say thank you to the author of this software, because he has spent time and work to give me (or us) for free this piece of software, even if it is so simple and not completely finished...

Doesn't work.

1) Whatever splitter I select (Haali, MPC, MAD VR, LAV) it gives me an error "You will not be able to select audio streams". Only Haali Media Splitter AR works.
2) Due to this error selecting/marking is not possible (= the ruler snaps always back to 0:0:00), but that isn't told anywhere.
3) Utterly idiotic ridiculous way to mark/select. I have never seen anything as bizarre and unnecessary and unintuitive as that. Actually I think it's a bug.
Just look at this picture...

...and ask yourself: If I press "save" what part will it save?
4) No keyboard navigation.
5) The output file name is not based on the input file name, but is ALWAYS "new sniper project". That means if you save several scenes from 1 file you will always have to type in the name anew.
6) Doesn't honor default output paths (at least sometimes).
7) No commandline.
8) Takes way too long to start up. Mind you, it doesn't accept command line parameters, thus the start up is for the naked program without any file loading.
9) Organizes its work in "Projects", instead of working with files directly. So you have to
* start up the program
* make new empty project
* add a file to the project

* instead of simply "Open file".

I wish it would work like mpeg2cut2.

Ease of use 2 of 10 Functionality 4 of 10 Value for money 5 of 10 Overall score 3 of 10

This is THE tool for cutting TS streams. It's simple and it works. Now on to the nit-picky stuff:

1. TSSniper's interface is wonky and takes some getting used to. There is no documentation, and various elements of the program do not operate as one might expect. However, click around enough and you will figure it out -- at which point it becomes quite useable.

2. TSSniper does not like Nero's software. It may give you an error message about proper codecs. I have found differing opinions on what this message means and whether it's a problem, but for me I simply uninstalled Nero -- a foolproof solution, especially considering that CDBurnerXP is good enough for most people.

3. TSSniper cannot always splice two streams. I am videotaping on a Canon Vixia HF M300, whose .MTS files, when spliced, result in a corrupted output stream. However, other tools exist to concatenate video files -- my tool of choice is TSMuxer.

Bottom line: use TSSniper because A) it's fairly good and B) if you want something free, you don't have a better choice anyway.

Ease of use 6 of 10 Functionality 8 of 10 Value for money 10 of 10 Overall score 8 of 10

It basically works, but when cutting TS AVCHD files with AC3 audio (removing commercials), I noticed the audio lagging noticeably near the end (after numerous cuts). Playing back the original did not have any such lag. So apparently this tool is not quite cutting the audio by the same amount as the video each time a cut is made.
