    Is there a program available which will let me split a large AVI file into
    more manageable parts? I have a 14gig file which I'd like to split into 3
    or 4 smaller parts.

  2. Have a look at http://www.dvdrhelp.com/ where a search will give
    various ways of doing this. One method uses VirtualDub, which I
    mentioned in another posting.

  3. Is it possible to have such a large AVI. I was under the impression
    that there was a 2 or 4 Gig limit on avi files.

    That is dependent on your OS File system there is no file limit on ntfs,
    that's why its recommended for Video Or sound files.

    I have a 60gb partition formatted with NTFS, this allows extremely large
    files, perfect for DV.

  7. Thanks Harry, I think that helps a bit.

    What's the score on filesize limitation though?

    Hi there

    In response to your orginal question I do the same thing on a fairly regular
    basis and what I tend to do is use virtual dub to pull the audio out of the
    video and then re sync it with Tmpegenc and split it to what I need if there
    is a problem with the audio sync then virtual dub tells you how much its out
    and you can compensate for it later the only down side to this is that it
    saves them as mpeg files not tried as avi but then I need to blow them off
    to vcd so never trided avi let me know what happens if you try to save to

    If you get stuck try www.dvdhelp.com and look newbie / converting avi they
    should be able to help always pulled me out the hole.
