Hey dmastous.. maybe you can help with this one... eventually I did a workaround after hours and hours of struggling with it.

Converted the VOB's to one file, and was attempting to split them into uploadable segments.  No matter what I tried (setting slightly different points), the 2nd clip came out as a 4108k file. All the rest of the segments split fine.

Finally after a zillion reconversions and split attempts, I hit on setting the 2nd clip markers right next to each other, and then continued the rest of the splitting. Got the same 4108k no-go file, but at least it continued on properly and I was able to get a real clip 2.  I'm using Easy Video Splitter. Any ideas why this would happen?

I've never use Easy Video Splitter. I get the .vob files from the DVD using DVDFab Decrypter, then point Dr Divx at that cluster of .vob files, adjust the settings, give it name and let it rip. Come back a couple hours later and my divx is ready for prime time. No muss, no fuss, and no setbacks.

You're saying it splits files as well?

No it doesn't edit them, it just converts the .vob files into divx compressed files. I've never tried to split DVDs into smaller files. I've had no reason to do that.
What are your source files? DVDs?

Yeh. I'm getting them into one file ok, but then I have to split them into <500MB for non-paying megaupload downloaders (that sounds funny! upload downloaders... lol)

There I would suggest, instead of going through the pain of editing the video, create the one bigger file, then break it down into a number of parts of a .rar, or .zip file. Then people can download the pieces and recstruct it. You can even do it so that those who don't have WinRar, or WinZip software can do by having WinRar create an executable. They download all the parts into a folder, double click the executable and....voila!... a full match (or set) video.

True that would be way simpler for me - though being a good physical and digital audio editor, I'm loath to admit defeat at the hands of video -- but it would sure help me stop tearing my hair out.

It shouldn't defeat you. Just get Sony Vegas Video and edit your video the same way you do your audio.
My approach is to convert it to uncompressed avi (because most editors work faster in uncompressed than compressed formats), edit it in Vegas, then resave uncompressed, and convert to divx. I have a large 300 gig hard drive to work with things so space isn't much of an issue.

When you see the cost of Sony Vegas Video, you won't think it's soo free.... :)~ ..-) I am fortuanate. I got the initial incarnation of it from Sonic Foundry, called VideoFactory. It was $80. That's what is at the heart of Vegas Video 7 which was $500 (had to get that because I was working on a video that needed text inserts which VideoFactory didn't do).

Here's a screenshot of the interface:

ok to be honest i haven't spent more than like 3 minutes trying to figure it out, but i'll tell you in those 3 minutes i wasn't able to figure out anything. like anything that i want to do. which right now is to get to making a highlight reel out of that roddick gasquet match.  but yeah i am going to try to figure it out and spend some time and then complain for serious.

Believe me, once you get it, you won't want to go back.....  ..-)
I'll attempt to describe it to you, but I may not be able to do very well.
You can see the way it's layed out in that screenshot? The video is place in the timeline along with the audio. To create a highlight, after you've dragged the video you want to break down, and allowed Vegas to render the audio (this can take a few minutes if it's a long video), all you need to do is hold the control key down and drag the video down to the next video line down. Typically it's one video, one audio, one video, one audio, line ut that can be adjusted as needed. When you drag the video down (with the control key pressed) a copy of the video is made on the new timeline. You can make as many copies the same way as you need. I don't know if there is a limit to the timelines.
Now to actually edit the video you grab one edge of the video and drag it in. Watch the video display (in the screenshot it's upper right, the default location is lower right). The display will show what is being cropped as you drag. You drag to crop, or drag back to re add what you wanted to crop. Then you do the same thing to the right side. Drag that back until it's just after the shot you want to highlight.
Those are all the tools you need really. Just frame each shot you want to add to the hightlights by dragging each end, then place the shots, one after the other and save. I would recommend saving the video arrangment once in awhile. It's just a pointer file to tell the program how things are arranged, so it's a small file. Once you have it where you want it, save it as whatever format you want it in.
I probably wouldn't go about it in exctly the way I've described. I wouldn't make numerous copies and then crop them. I'd probably make one copy crop it, then another and crop it. I'd probably only use two timelines, but you can use as many as you need.
Like I said once you get the idea, it's very easy and intuative. You can preview what you are doing as you are doing it. No marking files for some action and hoping it looks OK. You set the action and preview right there. You can overlap the videos on the timeline and set transitions the same way.

Set 4:  http://www.megaupload.com/?d=UDIEWCS6
Is there no sound with the match? I just wanted to know so tht I know that there is nothing wrong with my computer!!!! :))
I have only downlaoded the first set, but I have sound.


i am in the process of downloading and i previewed the first set while it was downloading and i didn't have sound either. so yeah maybe i should retry downloading? i'll wait for the first set to finish and then check, this has never happened before but i hope it magically fixes itself.

yaeh, no luck, i am redownloading and still no sound. maybe another computer will do the trick? i'll download elsewhere and try. i thougth this was one of the better grandslam matches, roddick was coming off a low to surprising new high with connors and federer was playing well last uso i thought, better than he did this year in the semis and finals. i'll try maybe restart the download.. again.

Cant remember for sure but I think it used the AC3 sound... so you may need to install the sound filter... k-lite codec should have it

i am currently torrenting

Federer vs. Nadal FO 2006
3.5 gigs and only 1 seed and last I checked I was uploading only 1kbps from that seed. I was however uploading about 30kbps from one of the peers. torrent page: http://www.mininova.org/tor/578553  if you think it might help speeden up for us. Looks like good quality, big file

Federer .vs Nadal FO 2007
600 mb. supposdely 5 seeds and 6 peers. I am not connected to any :confused: apparently the target machine refused me? I'll leave it on and hope it shows up. Still 600mb for a 4 set long match at the FO.. I wonder what compression its got cuz that must be pretty bad (i just checked a comment: quality is poor and its in chinese). i'll probably terminate. try your luck if you want: http://www.mininova.org/tor/745974

Federer vs. Gonzalez 2007 AO
4 seeds 2 peers, currently connnected to 3/3 seeds and downloading 45kbps approx. 940mb file
I am hoping this dls fast while seeds last, looks like the seeders aren't seeding that much but I hope I am wrong. It was a straight sets match, and if its compressed well.. oh wait I have a question. its mp4. how good is mp4 compared to xvid compression.. I don't even know anything abut mp4, can it support a good quality 1 and a half hour tennis match under a gig? I hope so. lets see how it goes. again if you feel it helps: http://www.mininova.org/com/566713

help me folks.

i have the fed vs. gonzo final ao. in mp4. its 900mb but great quality and what's more, its like more than just the match, its a 3 and a half hour video with all things leading up plus ceremony and everything, under a gig, great quality too, i can go full screen on my laptop and see great, that's just ridiculous. so now how do i break an mp4. we already have highlgiths so i didn't think of converting to avi (not to mention none of my converters even support mp4). is there a site that uploads 1 gig?
i could just put it on xdrive or something and share it i think right instead of the usual megaupload?
wait i didn't even try vdub, does that do it?
