Why don't you simply edit the mp4 file and cut off the area you don't want. Then save it with a different name so you don't ruin the original.

You can run it through the console using a console command.

vlc.exe --start-time <number of seconds> <location of file> 
 

It won't save the start time so you'll need to run it through the the command every time (may run it by a .bat file).

If you run it frequently enough you might as well follow sekim See Profile's advice and just create an edited version with your required start time.

How can I edit it ?
Do I need to use third party program?

Just run the command in the OS' terminal console. You could also use the command in a script file such as .bat (just customize the command in a text editor like Notepad and save it as a file with a .bat extension) in Windows and use that to start VLC and play the file.

However editing and a version of the file with only the parts you need to play would be far more elegant.
