Multi-chapter DVDs

I am trying to rip a DVD with 17 different chapters, or sections. DVD::Rip produces 17 separate .avi files. How can I ensure it turns them into one .avi or .ogg file, and in the right sequence? --Milan 07:47, 13 August 2008 (NZST)

I think you'd have to join them with a different tool --nad 08:23, 13 August 2008 (NZST)
Of course it would be better to have only one file in the first place but... some mpeg based video formats can be joined by just cating them together
cat part2.avi >> part1.avi
cat part2.avi >> part2.avi etc

If you try this back them up first - no guarantees! --Rob 18:44, 13 August 2008 (NZST)
