Split mp4-file

Hello all!

I have a case where I want to split a mp4-file into several parts (due to size limits). Have you ever solved this case, and what was your solution? I will post mine here as soon as I’ve solved it myself!

My guess is with mp4 or other video files, an API to do this isn’t feasible due to the nature of the large file sizes, and you might hit your data transfer limit on Make fairly quickly, so one would normally perform this locally on their computer using software.


HI @viggo

To trim a video, you can use the Shotstack app in Make. For more details, refer to the below link:

Normally yes, but in this case I’d like to split a .mp4 in order to fit it into a cloud conversion servicee that only extracts the audio to create a transcript and a summary of the transcript. I’d rather not do that manually on my local computer.

Great answer, thank you! Exactly what I was looking for.
