    I got a 700mb xvid file that has been separated into audio and video and converted into avi and wav file formats.

    The audio is 120megs at a bitrate of 384.... but the video file is bloody 58gigs what the hell... is that normal or what... how on earth does a 700 meg file increase its size by a factor of 820%, thats just berserk did I do something wrong?

    If you made a un-compressed AVI then I am sure it got very large.

    The question is why did you make a uncompressed AVI and what are you trying to accomplish?

    well Im trying to convert an xvid file to dvd-r so I decompressed it with virtualdub and now I have noticed that the audio file is fine but the video file is just 58 gigs of nothing. xvid file plays fine but the avi is rubbish any suggestions?

    Hi there,

    VSO DivXtoDVD v0.4.0 just got released.

    This new version will let you select mutiple files now.

    Makes it more easier if you have more than 1 file.
