How can I quickly connect multiple video files?

Mohammad Hamzani Salleh April 27, 2012

I want to be able to connect multiple video files quickly. I have some software that does this, but it’s way too slow. Also the file sizes keep growing and it introduces a chirping noise that annoys me.

What is a good freeware program that can join video files? I want something clean and simple.

    that just mean no then. n i dunno why this topic closed up. ormaybe this because there is no solution then.. but thank... i will bear with it or just let it be separated forever. that less hasle n time consuming to join them. n for question if the file is same, yes it same in all aspect except the size. since the uploader cut it to reduce size with limited storage i guest.. but then thank again for those that help me...

    Well you want to join multiple video files into single files. Are the joined files the same format? if not then conversion is necessary and this can explain also the growing size.

    try machete lite
    the free version do not support many video format but the joining is lossless.

    Windows Live Movie Maker can do the job. Whenever you are joining movie files, it will be a lengthy operation no matter what software you are using. If you want it done faster, you need a faster computer. A faster processor will help. More RAM also helps since it can process larger pieces at once. If it involves any kind of transcoding to do the job, it will take even longer. If the software supports GPU processing, a faster video card or multiple cards in SLI or CrossFireX configurations will speed things up.

    The chirping noise is probably the result of a slight misalignment of the data when adjacent pieces of video are stitched together again. Because of the quantity of video data, you may not see the slight jump there, but the audio stream is affected by a much larger margin with a smaller amount of data loss or jitter. Better control over the stitching point can help reduce this effect or if there is a slight overlap of data in the streams cropping the adjacent pieces to eliminate the overlap should reduce the effect. For this level of control, you may want to look at Lightworks. It is a professional quality video editing package (used in The King's Speech and other Hollywood movies) and it is available for free. Beware, the learning curve is fairly steep.
