    Hey everyone,

    Any idea where I can get a good (free preferably) program that joins together video files? I'm usually just working with .avi's or .mpg's from my camera and I hate to keep converting them to .dv and importing them into iMovie when I'm sure there has got to be an easier way.

    Cheers!

    AVI files can be merged with avimerge.

    Download FfmpegX it will give you a nice graphical interface to do what you want to do.

    Get Fink or MacPorts and find out what package it comes with and install it from source. I am not exactly sure, and I can't check right now, but I believe it comes in the avitools package. Trust me, avimerge is not just for Linux :p
