    hi,

    Is it possible to join avi files in the same way as binaries using a DOS copy command?
    eg
    copy /b <file1> <file2> <outputfile>

    or do you need a tool?

    I dont think so. It might join the files but i doubt they would play as the time coding etc would be wrong.

    I used a program called DVD Lab Pro (iirc) to join avi files before. You can also then convert them .vob and burn them to DVD.

    there is a dos command but i cant remeber it offhand. its simple but anything to do with avi manipulation you must use VirtualDub in my opinion.

    There is a freeware program called 'Diko' which I have used in the past to join two divx files together, very simple to use and good results.
    I think it does all avi files, but not sure :smashin:

    (for ac3/5.1 audio you need to buy/obtain a plugin)

    VirtualDub is good. Just set audio and video to direct stream copy then append and edit all you want :)

    Another free program that can join video files as well as repair damaged files, extract the audio track from video files and convert to and from various formats is ASF Tools:
