Stitching files together has always led to little artifacts in my videos.
The code change of [conditionally] writing to one big AVI file seems
like a large undertaking.
I don't think I could be the guy to do this. I don't know the AVI
file structure at all (although I am willing to read up on it), and my
C coding skills are very limited (I'm used to doing stuff in Java,
which is higher-level language). So I'm going to leave this in your
guys' hands, and in the meantime I'll be keeping a close eye on this
thread. Thanks for your time.
