 Those look very promising, but my version of ffmpeg doesn'tknow the segment filter. I found it in the changelog for version5, but the website lets me only download 4.4 and the github'slast release is 3.0 from 2016. Is the segment filter not availablefor the general public yet?

The select filter is very generic, and therefore not very robust. It
does not update the timestamps, hence the need to update them
afterwards. Furthermore, it works with whole frames, which can
accumulate for audio.

For your use case, consider the segment and concat filters.
