    I have converted several of my home movies to MP4 and would now like to combine several of them into one file. How can I simply merge these files?

    Played around with iMovie but it must import all movies... taking forever.
    I've tried VLC and QuickTime Player: saw nothing there.

    Thanks.

    I'm not aware of any editing software (that allows joining clips) that doesn't require importing.

    QuickTime Pro allows you to open the first movie; click copy; open a second movie; then paste; and so on.

    I found a solution with QuickTime Player. No need to buy the Pro version

    Nice find RightMACatU !! My video needs are simple & skills are primitive (I doubt I’ll move beyond iMovie). This is an excellent basic mechanism to know about. Thanks! :)
