See best practices for scripting.

Add this to a PowerShell script or use a Batch script with tools and in places where you are calling directly to Chocolatey. If you are integrating, keep in mind enhanced exit codes.

If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:

choco upgrade lossless-cut -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" --version="'3.24.0'" 

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)

Simple and ultra fast cross platform tool for lossless trimming/cutting of video and audio files. Great for saving space by rough cutting your large video files taken from a video camera, GoPro, drone, etc. It lets you quickly extract the good parts from your videos and discard many gigabytes of data without doing a slow re-encode and thereby losing quality. It extremely fast because it does an almost direct data copy. It uses the awesome ffmpeg (included) for doing the grunt work.


  • Lossless cutting of common video and audio formats
  • Lossless re-merge of selected segments (for cutting out commercials etc.)
  • Lossless merge of arbitrary files (with identical codecs)
  • Lossless extracting of all data streams from a file (video, audio, subtitle, ++)
  • Take full-resolution snapshots from videos in JPEG/PNG format
  • Manual input range of cutpoints
  • Can include more than 2 streams or remove audio track (optional)
  • Apply a timecode offset
  • Change rotation/orientation metadata in videos. Great for rotating phone videos that come out the wrong way without actually re-encoding the video.

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).
