  1. I wan to join two avi files and then convert to DVD file with DVD Flick then burn them as one dvd with BurnAware. I understand the two avi must have the same attributes. I can open them in media info and paste the text into notepad. Is there any program that will check the text looking for any differences or does it have to be done manually?

    You understand incorrectly. Only if you are JOINING the two AVI files and keeping them as AVI do the attributes matter.

    It's a waste of time if you are using DVDFlick.

    When you are re-encoded (e.g. MPEG2 for DVD) , the actual encoding settings used don't matter because you can do the joining occurs in the lossless domain (as it's being decoded) . ie. it's not necessary to join the AVI beforehand

    But the characteristics that you do need to match are video resolution, frame rate, audio sample rate and channels . If those paramaters don't match, you cannot join (even in the lossless domain) . You would have to make adjustments, either resize, resample etc... . There is no automated way to determine what needs to be done

    Either mediainfo or gspot can give you this information . If you post the reports, someone will help you

  7. I used avi joiner to make a 1.3 gb AVI from twoo 700MB files sizes approx. Thanks fro the feedback everyone some of it is above my head

    AVI is a container that can hold several video formats.
    Media info says MPEG 4 Visual. I think that is the right answer

    Can you tell me why it is a waste of time.
    ? Is it because DVD flick will encode ? But I needed to join them first

    Of course DVDFlick will re-encode. DVD is MPEG2....not AVI.
