Hi Werner,

Thanks for your reply.

My bad - I meant "configuration of ffmpeg" - for now I'm doing it by hand.

Yes, the manual tells me:

/-to time_stop       record or transcode stop time/

But can you explain to me why the to-switches I applied to ffmpeg behaves
like a duration? ffmpeg produces 5 files to me - with the lengths


It sure behaves like a duration, but of course I might be using ffmpeg
wrongly ... it is certainly an option.
