Under the "Video" dropdown menu, select "Direct Stream Copying".

Let us know of your success ;>}

You haven't indicated how big either the entire file is, or how big the "piece" is (either in giga/mega bytes or an approximate percentage of the the entire file) before trying to save it under VDub.

By the way, are you certain it's Gigabytes and not Megabytes?

1) Did you create this .AVI file yourself, or download it?

2) You might want to try uninstalling VirtualDub completely and then reinstalling it. By the way, which version number of VDub are you using?

"i am using virtualdub 1.4"

There are about a dozen different v.1.4xxx versions - which are you using? If it truly is the initial 1.4 (with no following letter [A through D] or number [1 through 8]), I'd suggest that you download a more current version - from my experience 1.4D is quite stable.

The more I think about it, the more incredulous I am about your response to my previous suggestion, "Under the 'Video' dropdown menu, select 'Direct Stream Copying.'" the only way you could create a filesize "explosion' of the proportions you described, would be if you left the "Video" set at it's default setting of "Full Processing Mode" - and even then, it probably wouldn't be greater than 8 Gigs...

It's quite simple. You are not setting up the compression codec. I had the same problem, just set up to MPEG-4, and go on.
