"I have quite a lot of TV series recorded in Divx Format (see below), and I am trying to compile the different series onto seperate disks."

I'm presuming you desire to place each series on its own DVD. If you intend to retain the original compressed file format(s), simply copy each of the files to the DVD as data. There's no need to join the files and, therefore, no need to concern yourself with video/audio formats.

If you're trying to accomplish something different than I've described, please state what you want to do...

Thanks for the initial response. What I'm trying to do is compile a particular TV series one one disk, a second series on another disk etc.
However, because of the different ways individual avi files were created I am having difficulty in firstly joining avi's of one series together to make up one complete DVD, and prior to this I would also like to strip out parts of commercial breaks from the begining of some of the clips (which virtual dub will not allow me to do.

what you want to do is actually very simple. i use tmpgenc plus for "cutting" and encoding. then tmpgenc dvd author for the authoring. look in this forum for tmpgenc guides, or videohelp.com

What SPECIFIC error message is VirtualDub generating when you try to do this?


"What I'm trying to do is compile a particular TV series one one disk, a second series on another disk etc."

I understand this. But what I'm asking you is, are you intending to CONVERT the .AVIs to DVD format (in which case you should follow the suggestions made by "columbo999") or simply TRANSFER the .AVIs to burnable DVD media WITHOUT altering their (DivX-compressed or otherwise) .AVI formats?

In either case, I can't see any reason for having to JOIN the .AVIs before further processing...

Again Many thanks.......I'll try the idea what you put forward, the main problem that I was having was cutting out the commercial breaks from the beginning of the clip, tried a few pieces of software but to no avail with the exception of Ulead's toolbox but that greatly increased the file size.
As I have said I'll try what you suggest and post my results all being well.

In reply to setarip's post, my initial idea was to try to re-sample the movie clips so they could be joined together (virtualdub reported various errors from both video and audio between clips preventing me from joining the clips (errors such as bad audio, different frame rates, different audio / video bitrates) and then say using Ulead Moviefactory 4 to create a complete DVD of one TV series..........well that was the plan.

The above are two different things.
