Mike I've used avidemux lots and do like it but it ocasionally hic-up'd where shotcut did not. 
avidemux is so easy I could teach my wife to use it in 5 min.
While shotcut is 'easy' it is lots more involved, so having put in the time to learn it I may as well stay.
PS I'll look if avidemux can build s seek table, THAts my issue
