splitting large file - with ffmpeg or vcdimager


Hello ,
I have a large *.avi file (about 1 GB)
I use ffmpeg to convert it to mpeg;
and later I use vcdimager to produce a *.bin and *.cue from it;

now I must split that file , because I want to use cdrdao to burn it
and it has a capacity larger than one media cd (700 MB);
In which phase shoould I do it ?
with ffmpeg or vcdimager ?
And does anybody know how to perform the split
I could not finf in the ffmpeg or vcdimager help about it.
regards.

Install transcode which is available as an rpm from rpmfind.net, from the standard Debian repositories over apt-get, or as a Slackware tgz package from linuxpackages.net.

transcode has a utility called avisplit (man avisplit for help) that will nicely split your original 1 GB avi file according to your size parameters. Then convert the avi segmentsinto mpeg.

you can use mencoder to encode the first half of the video into the same format, then do the same for second half, do a man mplayer and read options.
