movie joiner for linux?


Hi I'm looking for software that will allow me to join multiple clips together into one large file. It would preferably be able to join .avi, .mpeg and .rm files. I have found lots of windows programs that do the job but not a single linux program.

Does anyone know of a software that will do this?

How about simply catting them?

cat file1.avi file2.avi > huge.avi

Then using mplayer rebuild the index:
mplayer -forceidx huge.avi

Cool

There are:
mencoder (part of mplayer) as command line tool.
transcode - cryptic command line tool
avidemux - gui tool in two versions to up the confusion
cinelerra - gui tool nobody understands or can compile

You might want to try to have all of those installed - one of them can usually do the job you ned done - except with those .rm and .wmv files.Goggle is your friend.

Possibly, but if you are doing video stuff such as editing you'll surely wanna get mplayer installed (from source too) anyway as it's a FAR FAR superior tool for doing anything more than simply 'watching' movies.

Glad I could help

GBJ, Good Luck and don't get too discouraged (lots of threads on getting Mplayer working if it doesn't the first time).

Cool
