i know u can use cat to join files, but i thought that was just for simple files, like plan text, didnt think it would work with mpegs

can't say whether it's the best for maintaining quality of picture or sound, but it's definitely the fastest & easiest way to do it.

BTW, cool screen name Qwijibow, that's classic
