Audio Video Interleaved, known by its initials AVI, is a multimedia container format introduced by Microsoft. As we edit AVI videos, we usually join several videos together. At such situation, you need a user-friendly AVI joiner. In the followings, we will introduce some AVI joiners to you and tell you how to use them.
Part 1. Join/Combine AVI Videos with FFmpeg (Command Line Operation)
The name of FFmpeg is inspired by the MPEG video standards group, together with “FF” for “fast forward”. FFmpeg is a set of open-source programs for recording and converting videos/audios. It is also widely used for basic video editing, such as trimming, joining and rotating. The followings are the steps about how to join/combine AVI video files with FFmpeg.
① Download FFmpeg. If you don’t know how to do, click here for more.
② Open the command prompt window, input [C:\Windows\System32\ffmpeg.exe -i E:video1.avi –f mpeg E:video1.mpg]. In this step, the video files can be converted to MPEG files.
③ Input [copy /b “e:/video1.mpg”+”e:/video2.mpg” “e:/video.mpg”]. In this step, the videos can be joined/combined into one through the copy command.
④ Finally, input [C:\Windows\System32\ffmpeg.exe -i E:/video.mpg -f mp4 E:/video.avi]. This step contains trans-coding and the final video output.
If you are not familiar with the command line operation, or you want to add transition, background music and watermarks to the combined video files, you can use the following software.
