LosslessCut aims to be the ultimate cross platform FFmpeg GUI for extremely fast and lossless operations on video, audio, subtitle and other related media files. The main feature is lossless trimming and cutting of video and audio files, which is great for saving space by rough-cutting your large video files taken from a video camera, GoPro, drone, etc. It lets you quickly extract the good parts from your videos and discard many gigabytes of data without doing a slow re-encode and thereby losing quality. Or you can add a music or subtitle track to your video without needing to encode. Everything is extremely fast because it does an almost direct data copy, fueled by the awesome FFmpeg which does all the grunt work.

Supported formats
Since LosslessCut is based on Chromium and uses the HTML5 video player, not all FFmpeg supported formats will be supported smoothly. The following formats/codecs should generally work: MP4, MOV, WebM, MKV, OGG, WAV, MP3, AAC, H264, Theora, VP8, VP9 For more information about supported formats / codecs, see

Unsupported files can still be converted to a supported format/codec from the File menu. (Try the "fastest" option first.) A low quality version of the file (with/without audio) will then be created and opened in the player. The actual cut/export operation will still be performed on the original file, so it will be lossless. This allows for potentially opening any file that FFmpeg is able to decode.

Most video editors are not lossless - when you cut out a section they re-encode everything (Corel VideoStudio and Camtasia do this). This can lead to the copy of a copy of a copy issue of increased degradation. I was hoping that this would avoid that and it seemed to do a good job of that. Unfortunately it doesn't do clean cuts at the spot where I cut them. Example: If I cut a video at 3:00.15 (3 minutes, 0 seconds, 15th frame) the exported video would be cut at 2:58.15. This resulted in 2 seconds of what I was trying to cut still being there. I zoomed in on the timeline to get the cut exactly where I wanted it, and on the zoomed in timeline it was cut in the proper place, but the exported video showed that it did not cut where I requested. It happened multiple times in multiple files I tried editing. For me this is a deal breaker so I uninstalled it.

Unfortunately this latest version will not run on my OS Windows 11 64 bit Pro thus reverted back to previous version.
