Automatic video editing

Project description

Silence Remover Documentation Status

An automated video editing tool that removes lengths of silence.

Important to note, I don’t /really/ know what I’m doing in terms of a lot of the packaging environment, so pull requests are very welcome.


  • Automatically edit audio or video clips to remove silent or quiet sections


Install with pip:

` pip install av_slice `

or clone and install from source:

` git clone cd av_slice make install `


automatically remove silence from video.mp4:

` python -m av_slice video.mp4 --output_file=shorter_video.mp4 `

the script will run for a while calculating changes and composing the video. When it is finished, shorter_video.mp4 will be saved to the disk. If –output_file is omitted it will be saved to video_modified.mp4.


Heavily inspired by Carkyhs Jumpcutter library.

This package was created with Cookiecutter and the audreyr/cookiecutter-pypackage project template.


  • testing (get a good example video)
  • get ffmpeg installed on travis to enable proper testing
