    There is a application called PiTiVi installed as default in 10.04 and 10.10. this will be able to do it.

    Applications > Sound & Video > PiTiVi Video Editor

    Sorry, I can't help you just now I am on my work XP machine. Have a google to see of there are any how to's for PiTiVi. I fyou find anything interesting, post the link back here, as I would like to see that myself. Ihave only stitched stuff together on it so far.
    Maybe you need to crop out the 50 mins you don't want then save, then do the same, for the next 10min clip?

    I dont think there is an easy way with pitivi. You;d have to split it one by one and save/export one by one. Thats tedious. Especially if this is a recurring job, its probably easier to use this:
    http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/...visplit.1.html

    You can install avisplit through the software center (search for "transcode utility programs").

    There might a be graphical alternative or a gui for it, but should be pretty straightforward from a command line.

    I think you may try this package: "mkvtoolnix-gui", it`s a GUI for mkvmerge which is a tool to generate MKV files.

    I`m using a localized Ubuntu, so the following step`s English name is just my guess, excuse me.

    1. Open a terminal, install mkvtoolnix-gui with the command: sudo aptitude install mkvtoolnix-gui.

    2. Then in Application menu --> Sound & Video --> mkvmerge GUI.

    3. Add your input file with that obvious Add button at the top of the UI.

    4. Switch to Global tab.

    5. Check "Enable split".

    6. Choose "By timing".

    7. Input the time length, "00:10:00" stands for 10 min.

    8. Click Start button at the bottom of the UI.

    9. Wait until it is finished.

    10. End of the job.
