AVIMERGE – Concat videos from DVD – FFMPEG

Here i show you how to make one MovieFile from your DVD

I tried to convert a MovieDVD to one single AVI Movie file.

avconv -i VTS_01_1.VOB -c:v libx264 -crf 20 -c:a libmp3lame -ac 2 -ab 192k output1.avi
avconv -i VTS_01_2.VOB -c:v libx264 -crf 20 -c:a libmp3lame -ac 2 -ab 192k output2.avi
avconv -i VTS_01_3.VOB -c:v libx264 -crf 20 -c:a libmp3lame -ac 2 -ab 192k output3.avi
avconv -i VTS_01_4.VOB -c:v libx264 -crf 20 -c:a libmp3lame -ac 2 -ab 192k output4.avi


And later: Howto concate the videos of the same type to one avi-file:

avimerge -i output1.avi output2.avi output3.avi output4.avi -o MausFilm.avi

Bingo !

If you have any questions or any remarks to this article let me know.

(!) avimerge ist part of the transcode Package from Ubuntu up to Ubuntu 18.x. On later Distributions its not available.


An other possible Methode is using ffmpeg.

ffmpeg -i concat:"Movie_cd1.avi|Movie_cd2.avi" -c copy Movie.avi
