Hi. Fisrt, I apologize if this is a dumb question. But as my teacher used to say, there are no dumb questions except the ones that aren't asked I have a bunch of .avi files that I am attempting to join together into one big .avi file (so that I can then convert it to MPEG-2, so I can make an SVCD). I've been able to join 3 files together using VirtualDubMod [18.104.22.168] and save it as a new avi file. (Note: I have VirtualDub and Nandub available, but I'm using VirtualDubMod because it can handle VBR MP3 audio streams.) -- For those who are interested, the process for joining avi files can be found at http://www.doom9.org/virtualdub_procedures.htm#basicjoin -- But when appending the 4th file, I get the following error: "Cannot append segment 23: audio streams hav different sampling rates (16,000 vs 15,963)" ["AVICodec" indentifies the Audio as "127 Kbps, 44100 Hz, 2 channels, MPEG Layer-3"] Of course, this minor sampling rate difference is very annoying. What can I do to work around or fix this? My first choice would be: Put file "23" into some program that allows me to resample the audio stream up to 16000 bps without having to split the video from the audio, then re-save as a Divx 5 file. Alternative, I guess, would be: Use some program to split audio file from video file. Use some other program to resample MP3. Use some other program to re-join video and audio into a new Divx 5 file. (man, I hope I don't have to do that) Or is there something I'm missing? Can I turn a bunch of avi's into a VCD or SVCD without having to combine them all first? Is it possible to convert them to MPEG-2 individually, then join all the MPEG-2 files together before burning? (or use them as chapters?) Thanks for any help you can provide.
