[FFmpeg-user] Trying to cut 5 sec of beginning and ending of mp4 files

Here is a bash script I made to do something similar
I’ve converted is so that ffmpeg will cut 5 seconds from the start and 10 from the end.
#------>>>> Set the input video
#get fps of input video
eval $(ffprobe -v error -of flat=s=_ -select_streams v:0 -show_entries stream=duration $input)
# ------>>>> Round input to seconds and set as variable
# ------convertsecs converts seconds to hh:mm:ss
printf "%02d:%02d:%02d\n" $h $m $s
echo $(convertsecs inputduration)
echo $(convertsecs $((inputduration - 10)))
# ------>>>> Set the in (file locations), -ss start encoding here (hh:mm:ss), -to end encoding here (hh:mm:ss - 10seconds)
ffmpeg -i $input -ss 00:00:05 -to $(convertsecs $((inputduration - 10))) -codec copy "VideoPath/VideoOutput1.mp4”
#------>>>> End of Bash Script!
It will run ffprobe and get the duration of the input video, convert it to seconds, convert that to hh:mm:ss then run ffmpeg and cut off 5 seconds from the start and 10 seconds from the end.
