I have two .avi movie files about 700mb's each. I'm wanting to burn them to a dvd-r, I want to watch them on my cheap dvd player I have or on a PS2. I have tried making dvds before but I always have no sucess. Could someone pretty please help me put these two onto one dvd? E.g a walkthrough on how to do this and what programs I should download to do this.  Any help would be greatly appreciated :)

Cheers heaps!

Sounds legit
Anyway, to join video files i personally  use VirtualDubMod. I burn all my videos as needed to DVDs using DVDFlick.
Though you could make it simpler just add both videos to dvdflick and it would do it all at once, but i'd rather keep a joined copy myself.
Also i don't understand why people recommend ConvertXtoDVD, when its shareware and the trial watermarks the output!
DVDFlick on the other hand will do the same thing but its free and open source. - Click guide if you have issues but i took to it like a duck to water, very simple.

Ive used virtualdub and found it overly complicated at the time.. i have never heard of dvdflick will give it a go.. convertxtodvd does the same thing as it lets u put a few movies onto one dvd, with decent menu's etc. the new version is awesome and has heaps of new features over the old one.

Virtualdub is very easy to join files, though it pretty much has to be an AVI file. Tutorial here if anyones interested.

Though as i said, you could simply add them as two titles in dvdflick and it should work just as good.
