Question splitting avi

i need to make a vcd with a movie i have, but the length of the movie is too long to fit onto one cdr. Is there any program that is simple and easy to use to split the avi into two files? I have already tried virtualdub and tmpgenc, they don't work.

virtualdub or nandub should be able to split avi files.

did you take the proper steps?

Sounds like you didn't select 'Direct stream copy' for both audio and video, before saving each segment.

For splitting an existing AVI file into multiple parts (each of which can be separately sent into your VCD encoder), follow this:
1. Open file in Virtual/nandub
2. Set both Video and Audio tabs to Direct Stream Copy
3. Use the Mark In/Out buttons to specify the start and end of the first segment
4. Go to File -> Save as AVI and give a name to the new file
5. Repeat steps (1) - (4) for the second segment

Edit: Decided not to edit it. ==> This is my second edit, rewriting it back to my original response.

Ahh, OK I see. I assumed you meant durring the copying.

High response time when moveing the slider is caused by too few key frames. The only way around this is to have patience or reencode the video entirely. Depending on the severity of the problem, reencoding might be necessary, because you can only cut at key frames when using direct stream copy. It might be that the video only contains one key frame, in which case you have to reencode it.

Instead of draging the slider try using the goto next/previous keyframe buttons, to move back and forth.

How many key frames does the file have ?, you can check this in virtualdub by selecting File->'File Information'

If the *.avi has too few key frames which is causing the slow seek problem, wouldn't it be easier to convert the *.avi to a VCD standard mpg with TMPEnc (i believe he wants to make a VCD) & then use
File-->MPEG TOOLS-->Merge & Cut
to split the file?

polly
