Beginner's Question - Joining AVIs
I recently downloaded an episode of QI from Youtube which had been split into three files and I'd like to join them back together before watching it.
So that I can watch it on my tv, I have used Freemake Video Converter to convert the downloaded files from flv format to avi files.
Having stumbled across this website, I thought I would be able to join them together again using VirtualDubMod 188.8.131.52. However, when I try to load the first of the three files I get the following error message:
"Couldn't locate decompressor for format 'xvid' (unknown).
VirtualDub requires a Video for Windows (VFW) compatible codec to decompress video. DirectShow codecs, such as those used by Windows Media Player are not suitable. Only 'Direct stream copy' is available for this video."
I've no idea how to get round this problem and would be grateful for some guidance.
By the way, I am assuming, due to the amount of QI episodes available on Youtube that there is no copyright problem here. Is there a reason that the BBC don't get them taken down?

I don't know about copyright issues. Generally speaking, if you have several avi clips all with the same specs you can append them easily using AviDemux.
If you don't have it already get latest stable AviDemux (I think it's 2.60)
Run it. Make sure OutPut Format is set to AviMuxer(which it should be by default.)
Then drag & drop each clip in order onto AviDemux. With both Video and Audio set to Copy just save to a file.
