I have 4 avi files. Each file can be played properly in VLC player, Windows media player. Video-Audio Codec type in each of this avi file is Xvid-Mpga.

I used below avi joiners: Quick AVI joiner, AVI join, BoilSoft Video Joiner(trial version), but all of them gave an error when i select the first part avi file saying :

"format of the part1.avi file cannot be recognized"..

What could be the problem.

How do i join these AVI files.

Any pointers will help.

Even if VLC can play it there might be something broken in the avi file. Try fixing it, here are a few tips – Nifle Feb 11 '10 at 17:44

To join two files, they must have matching codecs, framerate and resolution. Try VirtualDub (you can follow this tutorial) - if these prerequisites are met AND you have proper decoder installed, it should perform without problems.

Great call, VirtualDub is an indispensable "Swiss Army Knife" of AVI tools. It is also available as a portable app if you want to try it before a full install. – Dennis Mar 13 '10 at 22:05
