Maybe it's better not to join them!. Just encode each DVD to an mpeg file, and burn each as a separate track. When you play your CD-R, at the end of track one, it will automatically continue to track two. That is, if you don't mind a small pause between tracks, which will be way shorter than manually changing CDs

@andybno1,

DVD2AVI will handle it. Just use DVD Decrypter to rip vob from both
disks and Select files with DVD2AVI from disk1 and the rest from disk2.
With LOTR you may have to cut the credits and use LBR template
(352x240) to fit on 1 CD.

I guess I could do it that way, can the pause be set to 0 seconds?

I can't do it as you say I only have 11.3 gb of free hd space, and thats after cleaning my drive of stuff I don't essentialy need. I doubt 11.3gb will quite be enough, how much would I need to do the 2 discs?

@andybno1,

OK. How about encoding disk1 first using LBR and remove the vob's
for disk1. Then encode disk2 using LBR. Now remove those vob's.
You should have 2 mpgs of LBR. Use Hjsplit utility to join
both into 1 mpg file then burn

Do video and Audio seperately.
Use Headac3he to do the audio as it will give better quality at lower bitrates, it is available here

well, I encoded the video with audio before getting a response and I have paid the price, the audio is slightly out of sync.

also I changed the aspect ratio to 16:9 (PAL) then put full screen (keep aspect ratio), the rsult is the subs are in the wrong place.

just done a test with the settings set to 4:3 and full screen, and its still in the same place.

Are you using VobSub?

If so, then run Subresync.exe and use it to edit your subtitle file and save

sorry, I added the following two line to the avs script:

LoadPlugin("C:\Program Files\DVD2SVCD\Avisynth Subtitler.dll")

AvisynthSubtitler("C:\DVD Movie\Subs\","permsubs.txt")

I noticed if I took out the resize bit I get the full movie and not what I got in the sample I posted.

well eventually managed to get the subs into the video, had to put it through dvd2svcd first, I have just put the m2v files and auio file through the project wizard and dumped it in the encode cue and the resulted file size was predicted to be over 900mb, now if the lbr template is to allow 180mins onto a 80min cd surely the first part would considerably smaller?

ok, scrapped the svcd way, now when I load the avs script;
Code:
LoadPlugin("C:\FitCD\mpeg2dec.dll")
LoadPlugin("C:\Program Files\DVD2SVCD\Avisynth Subtitler.dll")

Mpeg2Source("C:\DVD Movie\lotr.d2v")
BicubicResize(704,448,0,0.6,21,0,678,576)
AddBorders(8,64,8,64)
AvisynthSubtitler("C:\DVD Movie\","permsubs.txt")
and when I scroll to any frame I get:

avisynth: caught an access violation at 0x077f755e9

anyone know what has happend?

I'm also encoding LOTR spec. ed. [PAL] for 2 CDs. What settings did you use? I'm using CQ 60 (max 2300, q.matrix) for CD 1 and CQ 58 (max 2200) for CD 2 and cut off the credits. Will last some more hours.
I don't use the subtitles since I know the Elvish dialogue by heart ...

EDIT: Try another mpeg2dec version, sometimes that will solve a problem!
