Basically, I have a bunch of AVI files that are encoded with DivX or XVid that I would like to join as one single file.
Using Virtualdub, I tried to append the video files, but it returned with an error stating that the video files could not be joined because each had different video data (bit) rate.
Prior to doing this, I had extracted the audio to an uncompressed WAV in Vitualdub using Full Processing Mode. I then created a new AVI file using a Direct Stream of the original video file for the video source and using the Uncompressed WAV file as the audio source. This resulted in an AVI file with DivX or XVid encoding + Uncompressed PCM Audio. So I know it’s not the audio bit rate that is causing the error message.
Can anyone suggest a method to standardize the video data (bit) rate for AVI files?
I’m trying to prep a bunch of anime episodes for burning onto a DVD, but I’m not sure if it’s better to:
A) Merge multiple episodes into one large file OR
B) Prep each file individually and place them onto the DVD to be played sequentially
Any help or comments would be appreciated.
If I don’t need to merge multiple files, then I wouldn’t need to address the problem of appending files with different video rates.
When authoring a DVD-Video disc, do you need one single large file or can you input multiple files? If I can input multiple files, it would not be necessary to join the files in the first place and therefore I can save myself the headache and encode each video file individually.
Anyhow, if anyone has experience or suggestions, your input is welcome.
