Combining Video Files...

Hi all,

I have some .flv video files I want to be able to piece/blend together and wonder if there are any widgets out there to do so.

Should I convert them to something like .mpeg first? I want to make the joins as seemless as possible, but it doesn't have to be perfect.

Any points to some freeware, maybe, would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

I don't know if you can do it with freeware. It would take an editing program. The format shouldn't be a problem with a decent program though. FLV files are better for the web.

Thanks for the responses. I found a couple of free widgets or trial versions with no Water Marks that I used.

I had 15 .flv files. The total time of the files combined is roughly 1 hr 59 min. I used Freecorder 4's conversion tool to convert them to mpeg. I then used Easy Video Joiner to create one large file... 2.97 GB.

I then tried to use Free DVD Creator to create the DVD. Here's where my issues arise. I guess when it converts the large mpeg to VIDEO_ and AUDIO_ files, they are too large to fit on the DVD. The final contents of the created DVD equates to about 12 1/2 of the original .flv files.

Is there any way I can convert the .flv's to a more compact format or does this not really matter in that when converted to files for DVD, it will still be too large.

I like the Free DVD Creator utility because you can create nice menus, etc.

Worst case, I'll just splt the file to fit on 2 DVDs, although this would be a last resort.

Any further help would be appreciated.

I was able to get what I need and I now have two DVDs, one color and one Black & White, of the WPIX Yule Log. Oh how I've missed this little gem.

I don't even know if they broadcast this anymore so its nice to have it on demand now.
