  2. #create a for loop and split file into 20 parts
  3.  # readinto a large buffer to check its size
  4. #f.close() #close the file
  5. filesize=len(buffer)
  6. print filesize
  7. splitsize=int(filesize/segmentsize)
  8.  # reset to beginning of file
  9. #smallfbuf=[]
  10. for i in range(splitsize+1):
  11.     filename="part"+str(i)+".mpg"
  12.     f2= open(filename,"wb")
  13.     buffer2 =

It looks like you can import os and then use the getsize() function to see the filesize:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. import os
  2. size = os.path.getsize('centaur_1.mpg')
  3. print size
So I got that from Googling "python get file size" and I would Google "python get user input" to allow the user to input the segment size.

Good luck!
