    So i have two 400mb video files (.avi) which i would like to merge into one of perhaps the same format (.avi). The files are recordings i made with my new video camera of a camping trip and i would like to make a dvd to give out to some of my friends who went along.

    Is there a decent app around that you folks know off hand?

    thanks for any help.:)

    You should be able to import AVI files into any non-linear editing program and then export it into one file of any sort you want. And if you want it to be the same kind of AVI file, then there you go.

    VirtualDub!!!!!

    File -> open video file.

    Then

    File -> append video file

    Finally

    File -> Save as avi.

    I'm doing this from memory at work so the text on the menu's might be a little different but its going to be fairly close.


    **EDIT**

    Remember to set Vdub to "Direct Stream Copy" in the video menu, other wise it'll take forever and you'll get a HUGE file.
