I have a couple of animated kid's movies in digital format. I want to create a playlist that plays certain scenes from each movie, not the whole movie. Specifically, I want to play certain songs from the movies.

Can VLC do this?

Yeah I think it can, but I've forgotten exactly the details. If you Google VLC video playlists you should find threads covering it.

Another way is get a lossless video editor like this (their free version may also do) and then cut out the songs from the video, that way the playlist just plays the entire video so you don't need to specify a time-frame.

I've googled what you said, but i still cannot find anything that has this info.

I saw video commander, but it didn't seem to work on windows 7.

Can VLC even do this? Play just a clip from a particular video file instead of the entire video?

Google "VLC video playlist" brings up lots of hits including Youtube tutorials so I dont know how your missing it. Look at this one and another for specifying a time frame.

Thank you!

I had seen that link before, and read through it. But I thought it would be way to difficult to open the playlist with a text editor, and see the start time, and then add some code to create a stop time. But it was very easy!

Thank you guys so much! This is awesome!

Is there a way to have a video display the time in seconds? Since start and stop times need to be written in seconds, this would save me alot of time having to convert the times into seconds.

If the source is DVD you can also use good old DVD Shrink to do that. This can produce a single file of your clips you can optionally burn to a DVD. There are links to tutorials on the bottom of the linked page.

These are all digital files. I always use VLC to play them. Is there an easy way to get VLC to display the time in seconds?

I'm not sure, is that saying 10 minutes 10 seconds?
If so, I would want it to say 610 seconds instead. Because 610 is what I would need to put into the playlist code.

Is there anyway to make it just seconds? No minutes or hours.

Yes, you multiply the minutes by 60, then add the seconds to that. rolleyes.gif

Seriously, you'll wait hours/days for a "solution", but won't sit down and take the 2 or 3 seconds to do the math? Even if we're talking about hundreds of clips, that's all of maybe 10 or 15 minutes.

you're right. I can do it. It was more of a curious thing to see if it can be done.
