The program you found, mencoder, will work fine. E.g. Cutting one minute
from a video starting at 8:09, and converting to msmpeg video goes like

  mencoder -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=msmpeg4v2 -vf decimate -oac copy \
  -ss 8:09 -endpos 1:00 -o small.avi foo.flv

Another example to join several files into one H.264 encoded video with
mp3 sound:

  mencoder -ovc x264 -x264encopts nr=500:keyint=25:qp=26 \
  -vf decimate -oac mp3lame -o outfile.avi one.wmv two.wmv three.wmv

This program is very versatile, and has a lot of advanced options. But
you don't have to use them if you don't want to. Reading the manual page
carefully is advised, though.
