Here's a question out of curiosity. When you make divx/xvid avi encodings of
a DVD on two CDs, how do you go about splitting the movie in half?
I use the -endpos and -ss commands, but his has two side effects:
1. The two slices aren't always the same size, even if I timed it to be
exactly half the time.
2. Some vob files have incorrect indications of how long the movie is. If I
play the vob, and press "o" it shows me how long it is, but sometimes this
number is incorrect, resulting in me having do it all over again.
3. If I do a three pass encoding, mencoder will, on the third pass, start
reading the video where I specify with -ss (except when the vob file's time
field is corrupt, then it's trail&error), but it will read frameno.avi from
the start. Which means I have to re-encode the audio on the second half of
So, is there a nice clean way to split an avi of say 1400mb in half?
