    How can I split it so it fits on two dvd's? I'm not trying to do anything fancy with menu's etc, just want to fit it on two discs to back up.

    Wow that was a great walk thru, and looks like a great option. Only problem is DVD shriek appears to not like the type of file it is.
    I tried to drag it in and it said "invalid file name"

  3. it would help if you would give the specs of the file. a mediainfo or gspot screenshot would do the trick.

  4. If the file is MPEG-1 or MPEG-2 then TMPGEnc can do it by using Merge and Cut,if the file is DV-AVI then use WMM.

    Thats weird under type of file it just says "movie clip" I thought it would say something like "mpeg, jepg, avi, wma" under properties. Movie clip isn't really an extention, that i know of

  8. you might try avidemux. set it to copy audio/video and set the file type to mpg -ps. then use the slider at the bottom to mark start and end. cut the first half and then start where you made the middle cut and go to the end for the second file.

    So what exactly is mpg-ps? I've never heard of it before. I made these files with a tv capture card

  10. mpg ps is a normal video with audio program stream.

    The guide that Baldrick recommended is very good. Can it be saved for offline viewing?

    Yes. Simply use Flashgot or any other stream downloader to get the file. Or you can simply right-click and save as, then open in your browser.

    How is it everytime I make a thread some one gets banned, do that many get banned around here?

    I'm also trying to save youtube type videos, was this a good software he mentioned? what is the best (free) one?

    Ok got it to work. Is there a way I can see output size before I do it? First time thru it was still to big.
    And I don't need it to be the same type of file when it's done. Is there a better format I should copy them as? All I want to do is put the cropped file on a dvd then be able to watch them either in a dvd player or on the computer with any program I have.

  15. no one got banned, that is his avatar. private joke i imagine.

    you can convert to any format you want but everytime you re-encode something to another format it will lose quality.

    since mpg is already compressed the file size decrease won't be large unless you reduce the bitrate significantly and really lose a lot of quality in the process.

    ok thanks again, but if I keep it the same file type will the program tell me anywhere the size of my cut file before I hit save? I tried to do it based on time but it came out a gb over.

    Also any idea what the priority option is for? default is low
    Quote Quote  
  17. i don't think it will predict filesize.

    priority is the setting for cpu usage.

    Oy, why would a 4.58gb file not fit on a 4.7gb dvd??!!! Looks like I have to cut it again

  19. actual dvdr size is 4.365GB - same marketing speak as hard drive sizes. it's the bits vs. bytes thing.

    You are very helpful. I realised after I was over 2 hrs anyway so i never should have expected it to fit.

    So what can i expect the mpeg-ps to play on/with? Even the burn dvd shows the icon of an un reconized file format, I have to select windows media each time and thats all it works with.

  21. almost any video player should be able to play it on the computer. a dvd software player like powerdvd 8 is probably best.
