Re: Split .mov to fit on a CD-R

Hello list,
I have three movies, all in the .mov format at approx. 1400Mb each. I wish to burn these out to a CD-R, meaning I need to split them, into 700Mb pieces. Avidemux was not able to open these since they are not .avi-format.

Is there a program wich splits .mov files I can use, available for Debian Sarge? If not, I was thinking of making an archive (.tar, .rar, .zip, etc.) and split the archive into 700Mb pieces. Then again I have the same problem: Wich program available under Sarge can do this?

If none of these programs are available under sarge, are they available as testing/unstable distro's?

Distro: Debian Sarge
Kernel: 2.4.27-2-686 (stock-kernel)

Mondo splits these files automatically and creates CD's.

So say you have your 3 movies in /movies then you execute:

mondoarchive -O -w 11 -d ATAPI:0,1,0 -9 -I "/movies" -s 700m -k FAILSAFE -l LILO -f /dev/hda -g

You will get as many CD's (in the case of this command CD-RW's) as are needed to fit the three movies.

But you cannot play anything on each of these CD's: mondo format only to use mondorestore on.

Put the first CD in and run mondorestore: it will put /movies wherever you would want it and *then* you can play the movies.
