    virtualdub - cutting out commercials/joining avi's?

    Virtualdub seems to do everything, except apparently, these. I've had it with tv dvd recorders, so I'm just recording via capture card to mpeg1 (haven't had any luck with divx recording realtime, problems with the audio sync). However in some cases, I have to cut out commercials. Can virtualdub or something else, preferably free, do this?

    Virtualdub can do this, but isn't particularly good when you're working with audio streams. There is an alternative, virtualdubmod, which has more features for audio handling. By the way, Xvid > Divx

    However, I'm looking at this from an encoding standpoint. I don't have any experience with video capture, but I've heard that virtualdub is better than vdubmod for capping. You may want to just play around with these programs and see which one ends up being better.

    Edit: If you're working with MPEG videos in virtualdub(mod), you'll most likely have to process the video through Avisynth, which adds a layer of difficulty, but works quite well if you know what you're doing. Virtualdub itself was designed for AVI video.

    TMPGEnc will allow you to cut and merge MPEG videos, but I'm not sure about AVI.

    Doesn't matter, I can just edit it before I convert it to an AVI. But doesn't TMPGEnc cost something like $200?
