Is there any utility out there that will merge a number of AVI files that use DIVX encoding?

Of course, you will need to already have the DivX encoder. Which can be purchased or can be obtained by agreeing to adware.

I believe you'll need the DivX codec also.

You could also try file merger. It simply sticks file formats together.

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

You could also try the trials of Adobe Premiere or Ulead Video Studio. Once again, you require the encoder and codec.

Adobe's download site is currently offline, but you could try later.

I tried the virtualdub thing earlier and it produces HUGE AVIs from the divx avis that I have..

I guess I need to tell it to use divx encoding somehow.. any ideas?

If you don't already have the Divx encoder, you can get it here. You can either pay $20 or get the adware version.

If you choose the adware version, you can clean off the adware afterwards with ad-aware. But you have to wait untill after using virtualdub. The DivX encoder will not work without the adware installed.

ad-aware (after installing, make sure to get the web update)

DivX encoder

After installing DivX, open Virtualdub. Ignore the warning.

Video > Compression > DivX 5.1

Import your video (as first comment above), then save avi.

Done.
