Joining multiple files

hi is there anyway with the mcbuddy software to join video files like if you have a part 1 and part 2 video is there anyway to join them into 1 video file cos i dont think you can other softwares you do that.

also is there anyway to remove watermarks from video files like if you have taped a program off tv it has the watermark in the video file is there anyway to remove that from the video file without cropping it.

I can’t speak to MCEBuddy, but I use FFMPEG.

ffpmpeg -f concat -safe 0 -i video1.mpg -i video2.mpg -c copy output.mpg

You can use “-i list.txt” if you have many parts.
Also, you can convert them to say H.265 codec and AAC audio codec

ffmpeg -f concat -safe 0 -i list.txt -c:v libx264 -c:a aac output.mp4

As always, make sure your are using the current version of FFMPEG

ffmpeg -version

Hope this helps.

Shotcut is a nice GUI alternative to command lines. A plus for Shotcut is fine tuning the transition. I’ve also been known to cut out scenes or parts of scenes that I don’t like.

Shotcut is super easy to use. I love it!
If you output the files to MKV then you can use MKVToolNix GUI to combine (Multiplex) them also.

I use a little software program I picked up years ago for it’s versatility to split, edit and join videos. It’s called Bandicutt and this is a link to it… Bandicut Video Cutter, Joiner and Splitter Software (
