How To Split Videos In VLC Media Player?

VLC media player is a well known audio and video player across multiple platforms. But aside from playing audio and video files, the app also comes with other features. And in this post, I am going to walk you through the process of splitting videos using VLC media player.

Before I start, I want to make things clear. I will be using a feature called “Convert / Save,” the name may confuse you, but rest assured we are not converting. The file format and the quality will be intact, with that being said, let’s begin.


Step 1: Open VLC and make sure “loop” is “NOT” toggled on. If it is on, “TURN IT OFF!”

WARNING! If you leave the loop on, the splitting will never stop, so you need to force quit the app. For example, you can open the task manager on windows to end the task.

Note: If you modified the profile before, you might want to click the wrench icon and tick “Keep original video track” and “Keep original audio track.”

Note: There is a bug in version 3.0.11 where the “first frame” of the original video will appear at the beginning of the split file. At the time of writing, I can’t find any solution to this issue. So if it bothers you, consider using a different approach.
