    Must have same resolution.
    Must have same framerate.

    Open the first avi with Virtualdub or virtualdubmod.

    Click Append segment in the File menu.

    Select the avi you wish to join to the first one.

    Select Direct Stream Copy in the Video menu.

    Save Avi.

    For those looking for a point and click solution, google up JFuse. It sucks yes, but its point and click.

    Hi There,
    I'm trying to join two Avi segments using virtual dub however when I select the append option for the second segment I receive the following message:

    cannot append segment, the audio streams have different sampling rates (17028.00000 vs 41.66667)

    Is there any way around this? Can I resample the audio for both segments say, so that they match? If so how do I do this? I'm trying to convert Xvid to DVD for The Two Towers and I really don't want to have to span them over two DVDs.
    Any suggestions will be most appreciated.
    Thanks

    1. Open VDub, Open Movie
    2. Audio --> Full Processing
    3. Audio --> Conversion --> Specify Audio
    4. Audio --> Compression --> Specify Compression
    5. Video --> Direct Stream
    6. File --> Save as AVI

    Thank you Praetor for that, however when I select "save as AVI" I keep getting the following error message: "No audio decompressor could be found to decompress the source audio format"
    Is there a setting I'm putting in wrong?
    I thought I'd mention that I also get a message everytime I open the AVI files which says "VirtualDub has detected an improper VBR audio encoding in the source AVI file and will rewrite the audio header with standard CBR values during processing for better compatibility. This may introduce up to 13602 ms of skew from the video stream. If this is unacceptable, decompress the *entire* audio stream to an uncompressed WAV file and recompress with a constant bitrate encoder. (bitrate: 136.2 +- 19.2kbps)"
    Does this have anything to do with what is happening?
    I'm sorry but I'm quite new to this and I'm not quite sure what to do here!
    Thanks

    1. Check that your audio codecs are all there
    2. You're gonna need to use VdubMod to fix the VBR

    I can successfully merge 2 AVIs using VirtualDub; I can successfully extract ac3 using VirtualDubMod; I can successfully play ac3 using ZoomPlayer. I can successfully encode DivX to mpeg-2 using TMPGEnc. All according to afterdawn's Divx to DVD guide.

    The problem that I have is after I use IFOEDIT author the DVD, there is no audio starting from the beginning of previously splitted AVI file 2.
