I need a good video splitter, for .avi and .mpg.

I already know about Easy Video Splitter, but it doesn't work with .mpg. OS is Win 7.

What exactly do you mean by a 'video splitter'? The answers below seem adequate but you don't seem happy with the result. –  KronoS May 31 '11 at 13:10

You can use VirtualDub to split .mpg and .avi videos.

Here is a nice guide to how to do it.


Here is an unofficial MPEG-2 upgrade for making VirtualDub support MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 program streams.

Video files I want to split are those recorded with DVB-T from TV. So, when I try to load that kind of file with VirtualDub, I get the message "MPEG Import Filter: invalid pack at position position 3: marker bit not set; possibly MPEG-2 stream". Is it possible that these files cannot be splitted? –  MladenB May 25 '11 at 10:51
@MladenB: There is an unofficial MPEG-2 upgrade for VirtualDub but I didn't try it. –  Mehper C. Palavuzlar May 25 '11 at 10:57

I have had good success with TMPGenc, a free tool available here: http://www.tmpgenc.net/en/download.html

Details on how to split and join MPG and AVI are here: http://www.wikihow.com/Split-Audio-off-a-Video-File-using-TMPGENC

I want to split video file in order to make few smaller parts, not to split audio off a video file. –  MladenB Jun 17 '10 at 15:36
