Cut specific scenes from video files or from DVD using VLC player

VLC  has gotten several cool new features, one of which is the ability to record what is playing in the screen.  Here we will take a look at how easy it is to record a DVD or other video formats using VLC.

It is not possible to  see the record button in the default view of  VLC,  so we need to make it available in the panel by going to View and selecting Advanced Controls.
Now there will be a  Record button along with a couple other handy controls like snapshot and looping.

Now when you play a DVD or other video simply click on the record button and hit is a second time to end the recording.The recorded video is in MPEG format and stored them in the Documents folder labeled as VLC Record with the date and time.

Download VLC


Select your operating system to download VLC binaries:
