Udo,

I understand your point, but:

> one large, non-standard PES format file

I'm curious: To what standard to the .vdr files adhere to today? I always thought this was nothing but a hard split at the 2 GB border, especially as the split is by the number of bytes, not by GoP boundaries.

Correct me if I am wrong!

Regards,
Torsten
