Merge Video Files

By | 2 Mar 2010

To merge multiple (similar) video files into one big file, there are different ways.


This only works with avi files. avimerge is part of the transcode-utils package.

avimerge -o output.avi -i file1.avi file2.avi file3.avi fileN.avi

If the sound doesn’t match from the second file on, use the -c switch.


This should also work with mpg videos. Install the mencoder package.

mencoder -oac copy -ovc copy file1.avi file2.avi file3.avi fileN.avi -o output.avi

    I used to use Faasoft Video Joiner to do this task and happy with it. Hope it will help you more or less.
