cinelerra if you are interested in GUI based tool.
GUI helps make a precise selection of starting/ending point interactively.
It has its own downsides though: it is slow as it converts the video to raw
form. Occupies a lot of disk space. Has stability issues etc. But within these
limits it works well for specific tasks.
I'd suggest a combination of command line (mplayer/ffmpeg) and GUI tool:
Use command line one to get a small piece of the video with approximately
specified end points and then do a finer job if you need with GUI tool like
I used this once to rip songs from a VCD where the selection of end points had
to be very precise.
