Wow. I can not believe this works on something like an AVI file. Amazing! Thank you SO much for sharing that. Why do all these apps even exist? Jesus.

Or you can use this script I wrote: #!/bin/sh set -x if [ -z \"$1\" ]; then echo =e \"\\nUsage: `basename $0` Base_Movie_Name_To_Be_Joined\" exit 1 fi cat $1* > _$1_.avi mencoder -forceidx -oac copy -ovc copy _$1_.avi -o $1.avi rm _$1_.avi So you run it like: ./join_avi.sh Video which will combine Video* into 1 avi file and re-encodes it preserving it in divx format.

Uh, you should also note that the user needs to have Perian installed in order to open a .avi file properly in QuickTime.
