Use VirtualDub to split. (I assume this is an avi; if it’s ogm or mkv use VirtualDubMOD instead)
http://www.virtualdub.org
Open the file in VirtualDub. Then go to video and choose 'direct stream copy' and go to audio and choose 'source audio' (these two steps are VERY important, else you will be recompressing the whole movie, which could take days or weeks).
You will notice that the cursor on the timeline is at the very left. Click on edit and go to 'set selection start'. Then move the cursor to the middle of the movie (approximately) then click the arrow with the key to the left or to the right once or twice. Hopefully it *shouldn’t* take you too far off the center; the important thing is that you cut at a keyframe. Now go to edit and choose 'set selection end'. Then go to file and choose save as avi. You’ll be saving your first half (about 600-700MB, so that’ll take however long to copy depending on how fast your hard disk is.)
Once that’s done go to edit and choose delete. It will delete the first half (hehehe). Now to file, and save as avi and pick another name. That’s your second half. reply

Hi.. Actually i use VideoCharge in such cases. I really like it because it’s very fast, supports lots of formats and is stable enough, altough it is not free as VirtualDub. reply

This is a bit late, but here it goes.
If you’re following my steps: If you have VBR audio, you might want to use Nandub instead of VirtualDub, mainly to avoid out-of-sync audio. reply

virtualdub (version 1.8.0) worked great for me on xvid (.avi)file...OS is windows vista...i cut at keyframe (used key tools on very bottom toolbar for this) so this might help those who have sync issues reply
