trim an mp3 from the command line cli using ffmpeg copies to new file, original undedited

trim an mp3

I record mp3s from a few streams. Sometimes the recordings do not stop on schedule. This command allows me to trim or trucate the mp3 file.

ffmpeg -i infile.mp3 -vn -acodec copy -ss 00:00:00 -t 01:00:34 outfile.mp3

installation on ubuntu 14.04

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mc3man/trusty-media
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
# i needed to also install libavdevice58
sudo apt-get install libavdevice58
sudo apt-get install ffmpeg
sudo apt-get autoremove
ffmpeg -version
