    I video my son's sports games and publish them on youtube for his team to watch. I have a question regarding the best way to publish these and if there is an easier way to do it.

    Each game is anywhere from 36 to 42 minutes long and typically I have 20+ individual videos from each games (depending on how many whistles there are)

    I currently use Toast to combine each period (or as much of a period as possible) then I remove the audio and upload to youtube. If I attempt to combine and take out the audio at the same time it typically fails and I need to start over again. This means that I combine the video then wait....wait.. and wait as it encodes. Then I take the 3-4 video files then wait...wait...and wait as it encodes. Then I upload to youtube.

    A few questions that I have;
    The video is a MPEG-2, AC3 at 720 x 480
    Is there software that will not encode to merge? I can upload this video
    directly to youtube in it's original format

    The audio is Dolby Digital 5.1
    Is there a software that will strip out the audio and encode without taking

    Is there an easier way of doing this?

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    Didn't read this thoroughly I won't lie but I'll give you a quick answer and edit/re-post when i get a chance but I've had great success merging audio WITHOUT encoding using Mkvtoolnix (freeware). I had transformers 3 with crappy 2 channel audio but downloaded an 8 channel audio version and merged the 1080p 5GB movie to the dolby TrueHD 7.1 surround in about 5 minutes.

    If the video is on a DVD, you can use DVDxDV Pro to directly upload the videos to youtube.
