AVIDemux - Open Source Utility for Trimming Video Files

AVI-Demux Video EditorWhere, O where, can I find a simple utility for trimming an MP4? 

Most video editors make the editing process into a "project" and for good reason.  Video editing wants to combine video, audio, images, subtitles and more into a package which is then rendered into a specific video format (codec). 

All I wanted was a simple trimmer (as in trimming the hedges, not uprooting them).  I found AVI-Demux and couldn't be more delighted. 

How to install avidemux and how to use it to trim an MP4 - no muss, no fuss.  Great utility for all videographers.  Article and VIDEO
