How to use HandBrakeCli to encode video in a certain time duration?


Hi

I want to encode a section of video starting at 5 minutes with a duration of 3 minutes. I ran the command below

Code:
HandBrakeCLI -i video.mp4 --start-at 300 --stop-at 180 -o test.mp4
But it doesn't seem to work. It encodes the entire length of the video and I only want part of it.

Ffmpeg does this well with -ss and -t and mencoder does it too with with -ss and -endpos

Does anyone know how to use HandBrakeCli to encode part of a video. I am new to this command. I did a google search first, but couldn't find anything on topic.

Thanks

UPDATE

After doing more google searches I finally got the answer and will share with you.

The Format for start-at and stop-at for HandBrakeCLI

For time in seconds ie start at 150 seconds and end at 300 seconds

Code:
--start-at duration:150 --stop-at duration:300
Or for frames ie start at frame 2000 and end at frame 5000

Code:
--start-at frame:2000 --stop-at frame:5000
I've tested it and it worked like a charm.
