From BRIZ Software:
AVI Joiner is an easy-to-use tool to join multiple AVI files into one larger AVI file. AVI Joiner designed to join AVI files without recompression that allows you to join AVI files quickly and without reducing quality. But only files with identical parameters (such as frame size, frame rate, video codec) can be joined.
There's no way you could ever tell the file was ever split.
Files have to have the same parameters (size, rate, etc) or they can't be joined
Split files are usually done by the same person so chances are they have the same parameters, so you will have no trouble joining them into one seamless file. There should be a way to alter or reconfigure the parameters of heterogeneous files, though.
It's VERY fast and easy to use. Just chose .avi files with the same size screen and compression, tell the program what to name the saved file and MINUTES later you have one file instead of 2 or more!!!!! I'm VERY PLEASED with the job it did!!!
The only "Con" I have with this program is that the files you put together HAVE TO BE the same screen size and compression.
I like this program because it doesn't loose any quality and it works VERY fast. It does EXACTLY what it says it will! I had 2 Lord of the Rings movies that were broken in half for downloading purposes and it joined the halves together within 1 minute each! I liked the job it did so well that I paid the $19.95 that they wanted for the registered version. (THAT'S something I don't usually do! lol.)
I had a very important avi file from CamStudio that was created corrupted. I tried every other avi repair program on download.com without success. AVI Joiner was the only one that could fix my file. (forget Cam Studio, use HyperCam)
I only used the repair feature so I can't really judge the rest.
2) AVI Joiner only, so if you have wmv or matroska you're stuck.
3) Only files with identical parameters (such as frame size, frame rate, video codec) can be joined. Why these restrictions on a tool that costs $20? Get Easy Video Joiner, which is free and works really well!
The program is quick, but unless you're only using it for youtube quality clips It isnt worth the money.
The resultant quality is awful, many glitches and pixelisation problems; if that makes sense. That probably explains why the program is so quick, the finshed product is actually smaller in size than the originals; explaining the lack of quality. There are no settings to maximise quality either, try if you may, but this program will not please if you're after DVD quality.
