850 Mb .avi Can't Fit In Cd



1 answer to this question

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'd like to burn a vcd with a size of 850 MB. It can't fit to my cd. Can I burn this to a dvd disc as VCD or can i split the video into 2? If yes, how do i split them?

Thanks for the help..

I haven't encountered this question before so I'm trying to think of the best approach.


One option is to select the .avi in the Toast Video window and click Export. Choose DV as the format. You'll need a lot of free hard drive space (about 2 MB for each minute of video). When the export is done, remove the AVI from the video window, make sure Video CD is selected as your format and drag in the exported DV file. Select the video and click the Edit button. Click the Video tab and drag the right-most triangle to the left until you reach a good point less than 60 minutes to split the video in two. After clicking Done you should see that the scale around the burn button indicates the video will fit a VCD. Now click the burn button.


When the first VCD is done, go back to the Edit window and move the left lower triangle to the right where you want the second disc to start. Drag the right triangle all the way to the right. Click Done. You can now burn a VCD of the second half of the movie.


Be sure that your AVI has audio that plays on your Mac. Some AVI's have AC3 audio which is a problem with QuickTime 7.0.2. If this is the case with yours, download and place the following linked codec in your Mac's root-level Library>QuickTime folder: http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.p...lease_id=376984. You'll need to restart your Mac.


If you don't have the available hard drive space you might try a low-cost application called MPEG2 Works 4. It can encode MPEG 1 files from QuickTime-playable AVIs and then has a feature to split MPEGs to 790 MB sizes for VCD. Drag the split MPEG to Toast to burn your VCD.
