Editing mpg files?

I capture video from my analog video camera via Pinnacle PCTV Vision card. This gives me mpg files.I can view the files using Window Media Player or Dell's PowerDVD, When I import the files into MyDVD for editing, I end up with .dvd files. I can burn a DVD from this, but I would like to be able to edit mpg files and save them as mpg files. (this way I can send a relative a video clip on a CD and they are able to see it using for instance Windows Media Player).

Is there a software that can edit mpg files as mpg files?
Or is there a better way to make sure a video clip sent on CD can be seen on virtually any computer??

I have "windvd creator plus" that can do what you are asking. Also here are some "video joiner-splitter" shareware; download it and give it a try.

If vcd resolution is good enough, then just use your "mydvd" and burn a vcd or svcd instead. Anyone with a software dvd player can play them.

"Sonic Mydvd" is capable of editing mpg files but not able to output it. Also it is lot faster to create vcd than dvd (of course the resolutions is only half as good); but I think most of the newer standalone dvd player will play it ok. So maybe give that a try if you have not already done so.

I burn video with MyDVD. I also want to send shorter clips to my son, who travels a lot, I cannot assume that he would always have access to a DVD player . I assume VCD needs a DVD player , so I thought the safest way is to send him mpg files on CD. I will try cutters from the link you sent.

I agree dealing with mpg file is the quickest way. But this is just FYI; vcd can be play in a computer that can play dvd. Also there is a seqav.dat file within the vcd that can be can be play by any player that is capable of mpeg file (wmp should be ok).
