Hi this may sound like a stupid question but help me out here plz. I have 2 avi clips from a movie, I want to merge them together to make one file and burn it onto a dvd to play in my dvd player. How do I do this?

This is the only solution I have found. You need wmv:mov made my flip4mac. Do a google search for flip4mac and you will find their website with a free tryout. The only problem is that the demo only lets you convert half of your file, so that leaves the option of purchasing the program for $99 I believe. Anyways, that will convert them to .mov or.dv using quicktime, and you can then open both files and copy one, past it at the end of the other and that will merge both. From there you can send it to a DVD.

if you have ilife 05, then;
import the AVI files both into your iphoto program -
and then go into imovie and click on photos to import -
import the two movies and edit as you want -
then save the video
and send out to idvd to burn.
my canon digital camera records video to AVI - iphoto 5 and imovie 5 both support avi videos, so you should be able to go this route - it works for me.

use this http://homepage.mac.com/major4/
go under Tools> browse the first file, then second, hit Join. Then under Summary you can take that joined file and convert it whatever you please.

FFMPEG looks complicated - well maybe it is - but it has handy presets to transcode your AVIs to whatever you want, including DVD and VCD formats. It will even make a DVD image that you can burn with disk ultility.

VLC (videoloan.org) also does transcoding, I recommend using something (one of the above methods) to convert the clips to mpeg or something that quicktime handles properly, then import into iMovie and slap the clips together and re-export them from there.

A pity VisualHub is no longer around.
It will do what the OP is looking for in one single step.
Stich the two avi videos together AND convert them to DVD AND burn the DVD file to disk - all fully automated.

It's still around, just very hard to find.
For this job, however, or for joining multiple AVI files into one, I suggest the free D-Vision 3 (http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/8825). Yes it still works, yes its ugly, and yes it will get the job done very very quickly.
