Joining two movies into one mp4

I know this was asked before, but I can't seem to find the thread. Sorry.

How do you combine movies that come on two disks into one mp4 file? I am trying to encode the extended version of LOTR. Before I had an ATV I simply used QT Pro to combine the two files. But this produces a .mov container, which plays fine on the computer but not on the ATV.

So, is it possible? And if so, how do I do it? Thanks.

I think but I'm not sure but Visual Hub can probably convert that .mov file to .mp4.

VH will do it.

In QT Pro, you have to Export it to the TV format.

Thanks for the quick responses. I'll try QT Pro again, this time using the ATV export, since it's what I have. If that doesn't work then I'll buy VH.
