Davo recommended mencoder (a linux command-line tool). There is also 
ffmpeg and vlc, all of which have the capability to do the snipping and 
re-encoding. The problem is not that Linux does not have the tools, but 
rather that those tools are so powerful and non-intuitive. :( It is one 
of those situations where Linux can do anything, to the point that it is 
difficult to get it to do exactly what you want.

Sometimes, instead of an all-encompasing solution, we just want 
something that does what we want to do, and is simple to use.
