"On Windows, VirtualDub should be able to do this. Check out this guide for in-depth guide on how to split videos.

The creatively named Easy Video Splitter can apparently do the job easier, but I have never used it so i would not know first hand."

"Without a doubt, VirtualDub is the way to go.

Open the first AVi in VirtualDub
Select ""Direct Stream Copy"" for both video and audio
In the file menu, choose Append AVI Segment (or similarly named)
File -> Save As and give your avi a new name

Bingo! I have done this many times. The only gotcha is to be aware that the dimensions, codecs, bitrates, etc. all need to be the same or your new video file will behave, lets say, strangely. Or not at all."

"Quality after split is problem, because you must reencoded new file. But it depends on what coded used in AVI file.

VirtualDub

windows only"

You can easily achieve this with the Quicktime player (you might need pro), but a lot of people don't like simply because the UI looks out of place on windows.
