I have a whole bunch of photography tutorials I converted from Flash video format (.flv) to .mp4 so I can watch them on my iPad. Since those tutorials are broken down into a myriad of .mp4 episodes it makes it much harder to watch them in the right order. I needed to find a way to merge several episodes into large movies. This is where Squared 5′s MPEG StreamClip for Mac comes in handy. While this free video conversion tool allows you to convert alls sorts of video formats to .mp4, it also allows you to merge multiple .mp4 videos. Here’s how to do it.
- Launch MPEG StreamClip
- Drag n’ drop multiple .mp4 videos to the blue dots. The videos are merged in the order they’re dropped onto the application. Usually, my videos have a number prefix like 01.mp4, 02.mp4, 03.mp4 so I’m able to drop them in that order all at once.
- Go to File -> Save as and select a target name for your merged movie and the type MP4
- You’re done!
