Converting this Video?

In 2006, I made a video but I can not recall what program. These are the files:


E:\>dir /s /b
E:\CDI
E:\EXT
E:\MPEGAV
E:\SEGMENT
E:\VCD
E:\CDI\CDI_IMAG.RTF
E:\CDI\CDI_TEXT.FNT
E:\CDI\CDI_VCD.APP
E:\CDI\CDI_VCD.CFG
E:\EXT\LOT_X.VCD
E:\EXT\PSD_X.VCD
E:\EXT\SCANDATA.DAT
E:\MPEGAV\AVSEQ01.DAT
E:\VCD\ENTRIES.VCD
E:\VCD\INFO.VCD
E:\VCD\LOT.VCD
E:\VCD\PSD.VCD

I want to convert this, using free software, to a single file like AVI, MP3, etc. Is this possible?

Thank you.

That appears to a virtual CD file that is used to fool the computer that it is playing a CD when in actual fact the details are on the HDD.

Are you sure that you made the video, or did you just use some application to copy details from a CD to your HDD?

This is indeed one I made long ago as a test in how to make a video. I was obviously successful in the three minute clip, but do not remember what program. I really do not recall but it was in the days before I owned Vista, and the machine I did it on has been long gone. I just pulled the CD from my container of dusty backups. It is on a CD-R.

I see mpeg is mentioned in one of the file names, is that perchance the largest file? If so I would add the extension .mpg to that file and then try to play it and see what happened.

If no luck there my next approach would e to open the files one at a time with a hex editor and take a look at any meta data, for a clue as to the format, and hence gain an idea as to what I could play it on.

Good luck and please let us know how you get on.

VCD stands for 'Video Compact Disc' and basically it is a CD that contains moving pictures and sound. As indicated; MPEGAV

AVIcodec will tell you the video format and audio format of almost any video source. AVIcodec will tell you what video codecs or filters you need to be able to play it on your computer. It will also give you the the video and audio properties/details/information such as resolution, framerate(fps) and bitrate.
