Is there a command or a way to trim an FLV audio stream at a particular location?

Lots of questions coming through lately, I'll try to keep up. Here's one that has no good answer unfortunately but may be good to know for others if they are thinking to do the same thing. Two questions here:

The question: Is there a command or a way to trim an FLV audio stream at a particular location? and, Is there a command to append or combine two audio streams without replaying them and recording them into a new stream?

The answer:

The answer to both of these questions is an unfortunate no. The only way to trim up an audio only (or even a file with audio and video) is to record that stream again to another FLV and just stop it where you want it cut.

Which leads us to the next question on combining two streams. This would sure be a nice feature if FMS could do it. Combining streams into one would be quite cool but I don't expect it in FMS for a while. Again the only way to combine some streams is to play one server side and record it to a new stream (you could just append to one of the files I suppose if you don't need to keep it as is) and when that stream finishes playing then just play the next stream and append it to that new stream.

I sorta covered that topic here.

I suggest for these items to make a request to the FMS team themselves from here: Adobe Wishform
