Default Cutting out section of a video with VLC

I have a video downloaded from my phone which has an awful section in the middle which I'd like to delete. I have transferred the video to my computer. Can anyone tell me how I can get rid of the unwanted section using VLC?

Happy New Year! A good start for me as I've finally found out how to get rid of the unwanted portion in the middle of my video.

I thought that piecing the two good bits together would be easy by following lots of online instructions: ie, in VLC Media --> Open Multiple files --> Play --> Convert. However, this doesn't work - whatever I do, only one of the sections will play. Any suggestions?

Hello,

Might be too late an answer, but why not use a video edit program like Windows Movie maker that may already be on your PC ?

If you are on W10 FCU then the Films and TV app contains such an editor.

Thanks for the suggestions. I had considered some of these alternatives, and actually in the end I did it using Sony Vegas. But a stubborn bit of me objects when I have meticulously followed the instructions for doing it on VLC and cannot get the result I want!

I've had only bad experiences with VLC, and their forum seems to have been abandoned, so no help there.
