If you can play it with mplayer, then you can (assuming your movie file
is a.mp4 and length is 1000 secs)

$ mencoder -oac copy -ovc copy -ss 0   -endpos 500  -o first.mp4  a.mp4
$ mencoder -oac copy -ovc copy -ss 500 -endpos 1000 -o second.mp4 a.mp4

Or you could take the easy way out and run this to get split files.
$ split -b 700m a.mp4
