Is There Any Way To Split Up an MPEG File So It Can Be Burned More Easily?

I have a MPEG file thats about two hours or so long. I want to be able to burn this file onto two CD-R's, but I know that each disc can only hold 60 minutes.

Anyone know if there's a way I can split up the MPEG file into halves--or some other similar fraction--and burn the first half, and then the second half.

Thanks guys.

TMPGEnc does a good job on splitting MPEG files.

Actually, MPEGs are easily split - if you get something like HJSplit, you can just cut in in half and name each one .mpeg and it should play and be joined just as easily.

First off, what kind of MPEG is it? Did you want to put it on two discs just as data files or as a VCD/SVCD?

For data files, the length of the MPEG doesn't matter, it is the size of the file. I mean I could take a hour long MPEG-2 clip (1.5GB) and re-encode it to low bitrate MPEG-1 and fit it onto one CD-R.

I think the details of the MPEG do matter. As for spliting MPEG's I use MPEG2VCR, it's also great for basic editing of MPEGs.
