Create one video from multiple consecutive events

Post by patpend » Tue Jun 21, 2016 11:22 am

I need to save an hour's worth of events (about 50 individual events) to one video. Is there a one-step way to do this easily? Otherwise is the only option manually creating a video of each event and concatenating using some sort of video editing software?

Not found a 1 step ZM solution, but ... I use this to join multiple .avi's (xvid/mp4 format) from Zoneminder ...

Code: Select all

mencoder *.avi -ovc copy -of avi -force-avi-aspect 4:3 -o mergedclip.avi
Seems to join with no loss/errors/recoding, so works for me.

If they were mpeg files, you could get away with just using

Code: Select all

cat *.mpg > mergedmpeg.mpg
Which is simple as it gets!

Thanks mikb. Looks like this will work for .mov files too, which is what I'm using (since mov file size is about 20% of mpeg).
