Appreciate you trying to be helpful, orange_fizzy, however it's best we don't allow (new members especially) directly posting any EXE files. Link removed (simple google search for 'free video joiner' returns many hits from official sites). Also note one's mileage will vary as quoted below.
Hi Orange, took your advise and joined 4 clips which totaled to less than 200MB. But the joined single video is 640+ MB. Any idea what I am doing wrong? Thanks for your help.Basic info on joining or splitting video files:
Typically one would want to combine several clip parts to combine into full movie (part 1+part 2). In such cases both parts are usually the same format and should be always joined using direct method without any re-encoding / recompressing if possible. The end result is then the same quality/format video as the single parts and its filesize simply equals of that of all single parts combined.
Same goes for splitting (your favorite) scene(s) from a complete movie. Always try going with the software that allows direct-stream cutting without re-encoding. It takes no time to cut this way, and the split scene(s) is the same format/quality as the original source.
Google "video joiner no re encoding
" / "video splitter no re encoding
" for such software. There are many, both paid and free. I'm not doing much cutting/joining anymore and what I need Avidemux can do for me, but back on Windows XP I used and recommended Boilsoft Video Splitter
and Boilsoft Video Joiner
which were dead easy to use. Links can be found on software forums.
: If video you want to share on the forum was produced in parts, post it in parts (in its original form).
