    What is a good program for splitting big video files?

    I have videos that are 1500MB. I want to put it on a data CD. A data CD only holds 700MB. One is an AVI file. I heard of 'AVI Chop', but its own makers say it is not very good. Thanks

    If I split an AVI video file and put it on a data CD, could I view it from the CD, even though only part of the file is on the CD?

    Thank you for replying.

    Try it out Veronica,cd's are really cheap.The manual says files of any kind and I couldn't find any contrary info.Let us know what you find.
    The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

    I'm just guessing but I think it has to be joined first before viewing.

    I'm not sure but because it's for all types of files, I think you'll have to rejoin them together.

    Try Magic AVI Splitter
    Magic AVI Splitter can help you split, cut, or trim a large AVI file into smaller video clips.
    From what it says, I'm sure you'll be able to play them without rejoining.
    And it costs only $20. Check out the trial version and give us a review of it.

    I can not afford $20 for software. I was looking for something free. Thank you anyway. Thank you all for your replies.
