    Handbrake is only for compressing videos, Avidemux allows you to easily trim clips without re-encoding.

    FFMpeg is a framework that allows you to edit video, but on it's own does not. It's not a full featured program.

    Too many features, too slow. I just want to trim the leading and sometimes the trailing end of a video clip. Avidemux does this in 30 seconds.

    Handbrake is a great programme for what it does, which is definitely not a video editor. Handbrake and Avidemux are in no way the same.

    AVI format and multiaudio support is better than in avidemux, I use it to fix audio delay issues with avidemux AVI output and set AVI muxing parameters.
