I have been using VLC for a few years now, finding it very useful and packed with features, but what i can't work out is:

Is there a way to "chop" a length of clip from the start or end, removing from the start or end however many seconds you choose, or to see it another way removing all video and audio before or after a chosen point?

Is VLC capable of this (like saying "i have a 2 minutes video and want to remove the last 30 seconds", or "i have a 1 hour video and want to remove the first 8 minutes") or would another piece of software be required for this task?

Initial searching reveals it can cut or record the portion you only needed. :)
