I have a 800 MB movie file (a great overseas movie everyone has raved about) and as much as I'd love to keep it on my Hard Drive, I can't. I need to trim this baby down to under 700 MB so it can go on a CD.

Basically, I just want this movie for some of it's scenes...I can cut out the beginning and end of it and maybe slice it down to 700 MB. Couple questions, or several actually.

1) Can I slice MPEGS without totally f*cking it up?
2) Is there a free program that does this?
3) What are the best programs for this.
4) Also, how do I connect two MPEG files (like one is 300 MB, the other 150 MB) into one big MPEG file?

Help is appreciated, thanks

btw.. how many minutes is the file? size in mb does not matter if you burn the movie as a vcd.. as long as its under 80 minutes (or 74 minutes for a standard cd)..
generally 800mb equals 80minutes, so you should be able to burn it as one file to a 80 minute cd, if you do it as a vcd.

I want to burn it to a CD-R.

It's a 2 hr movie and in pretty high quality. All I want is to cut and slice the movie to remove a ton of wasted MB and time that I don't need/want.

Virtual dub is supposed to be pretty good.

All I can say is if you plan to edit an AVI file, you can expect some serious crunching when your machine tries to resave it!
