I saved some tv with my Blaze tv stick software and it saved it all as four different mpg files - I don't know why - all the same size about 666,000Kbyte, must be a magic size or something.
Anyway, the bloke I did this for wants the show on a dvd so's he can watch it on his tv.
Now I need to stick these four files together and then burn the finished file.
I have Nero and Imgburn and Windows Movie Maker and whatnot.
I think they'll probably all do that, no trouble. Maybe.
But there's tv commercials in all this stuff, too and I'd like to edit them out.
So how to do it?
I tried Virtual Dub and it wouldn't read the files, said there was something wrong, maybe they were mp2 or something it said.
That was a bummer, I was relying on it.
So I'm in such a hurry that I'm asking this question before I even start trying to get it done myself - hoping I'll catch someone can steer me right before it's too late at night and I'll still have enough time to get it all done by morning..... even if I get off to a false start as I prob'ly will........
What's the best way.. best tools.. ?

Videoredo or mpeg video wizard dvd or tmpgenc authoring works. Not free though but they are probably easiest while you get good quality.
But if you want free software you can try freemake video converter, load all mpgs, use the scissor to cut each mpg, output to a dvd.
Or use mpg2cut2, open all mpgs, use the start [ and stop ] buttons and remove commercials, save as new mpg, convert to a dvd with avstodvd.
Thank you, Baldrick. 6 a.m. here. I wasn't successful last night. I'll go again this morning and try your suggestions.
all the same size about 666,000Mbyte,
now 666,000 Kb would be 666MB, and that makes more since
I've edited the post, wiz, I meant kB, of course.
Didn't try your suggestions yet, Baldrick, stumbled across Magix whilst browsing through 'hidden' ( i.e. not on the desktop, not seen, not used for yonks) installed progs and I used it. And did no edits. Turned out only the last file had commercial stuff on it - in fact was all 'commercial' stuff, so I just left it out.
Had a quick look at the finished thing and it seemed okay.
So now I got some leisure time I'll try out those tools you've suggested, Baldrick - hope I can avoid adware on that Freemake thing?
666 is not magic , it is the number of the devil ! are you serious ?
Some DVB recorder more usually split videos in 2 GB files.
You should be able to join Mpeg2 files with ProjectX ,Avidemux or many other software ( I do use only freeware).
I do not yet really practice HD.
I can after that author them to DVD with DVDFlick or DVDStyler without reencoding if th stream is compliant to DVD.

he never said 666 was magic... what are you trying to start .. keep religion out of this
he said he stumbled across Magix .. which is a program
Thanks for the clues on the progs, guys, I still haven't gotten down to it, been too busy, but I will..
