[MPlayer-users] TV Capture and AVI editing - best practices

I tried avidemux on a file which I had recorded directly. I noticed some
choppiness of sound after I had cut out the commercials. For that, I may
try using mencoder to strip out the sound, then point avidemux to the
external sound file. Hopefully will have better luck with that.

When I tried to save the avi file, however, I got the following error:

 End of header...

 writing 161423 frames

 **working **
avidemux: riffparser.cpp:384: long unsigned int riffparser::read(long
unsigned int, unsigned char *): Assertion `fread(ptr, nb, 1, _file) ==
1' failed.

Note that there was no divx.log file in the directory.
