Whats the most common way people are editing their recorded media ? Trimming the head and tails of the media with Quicktime or editing them in a suite like Adobe and exporting them ?
What kind of media are you talking about? Audio? Video?

Personally I wouldn't use quicktime for anything over my dead body. Adobe is a full suite of subscriprtionware covering numerous multimedia fields.

For simple audio trimming / cutting / splicing / converting purposes I use audacity provied my original is lossless - otherwise I dont bother.

For menial task video(and audio) purposes I use FFMPEG

Its video w/ synced audio. I just need to trim the commercials and beginning and end handles of the shows. I recorded with very good quality though didn't want to add any unnecessary compression to the final uploaded video.
You can use ffmpeg to trim video files without compression. Look here: https://superuser.com/questions/138331/u...t-up-video
ill89eagle, is there a "Dummies" book for FFMPEG?

I know I need one. Big Grin

This is the output of the command ffmpeg with no flags (provided it's installed on your system)

Code:
usage: ffmpeg [options] [[infile options] -i infile]... {[outfile options] outfile}...

Use -h to get full help or, even better, run 'man ffmpeg'
Thanks. I guess it's as good a guide as any.

I use a lot of GUIs. Is that bad in that i'm comparable to using a calculator before knowing how to use basic arithmetic?
