    Do you mean append a second after the first one has ended, like a part one followed by part two?

  4. Avidemux can be a quick solution, open the first movie in the software and then add the second from the menu with add and save everything, must be two movies with the same video resolution.

    Have said this before: binary copy doesn't provide proper continuous frame timestamps, and leaves in old headers, among other issues, so confuses players. If you got files to work that way, you just happened to luck out, but it shouldn't be recommended to others.

    Avidemux (which is gold), or FFmpeg with specific commands, like concat, which I don't remember.

    If one prefers gui then LosslessCut is a good option. Must drag and drop at least 2 files at once, drag files into proper order and Tools -> Merge/Concatenate files.
    A convenience way to string together AVI files from ScenalyzerLive.

  11. avidemux does not always works, there can be some errors

    ffmpeg works fine, first create a textfile with the files in it like:
    file 'C:\Users\name\Desktop\file1.mp4'
    file 'C:\Users\name\Desktop\file2.mp4'
    file 'C:\Users\name\Desktop\file3.mp4'
    file 'C:\Users\name\Desktop\file4.mp4'
    save it in the same folder as ffmpeg for example "join video mp4.txt"


    then run this ffmpeg command
    ffmpeg -f concat -safe 0 -i "join video mp4.txt" -c copy c:\users\name\desktop\output.mp4
