Disattisfied with the existing solutions for cutting silence in videos, I had to make my own.

Unlike the other tools you will find on the internet, cutitout will:

  • Not fill /tmp with 10+ gigabyte .wav files
  • Not have audio desync when you cut a video longer than a minute
  • Not take an hour to render an hour-long video

The reason? It doesn't reencode your videos: it's an addon for mpv.


Copy the content of this repository in your mpv scripts directory, usually ~/.config/mpv/scripts (create it if it doesn't exist).

Press F12 to toggle silence skipping.
