How To Join Two Video Files Together

This guide will show you how to flawlessly join two video files. Perfect for when your legal copy of Star Trek gets downloaded as two separate files.

To do this, we are going to use Avidemux, a free open-source program designed for multi-purpose video editing and processing.
In a terminal type:
sudo apt-get install avidemux

1. Open the first part of your video
2. Unpack the bitstream
3. Under Audio select Build VBR Time Map
4. Under File select append (Ctrl+Alt+A) to select you next video file
5. Unpack the bitstream
6. Under Audio select Build VBR Time Map
