Yes, since I believe that you already have a cutting script, and it 
sounds as if it creates a new video-format file.

Delete the recording's cutlist.

Perhaps rename the original file for safety, replace it with the 
videofile, and use mythcommflag --rebuild, which also resets the file size.

I suppose you might also want to remux the result to remove unwanted 
streams, but probably not.
