    If you want to join video files together then Simple Video Splicer is a freebie that is very simple, and very afst. If it doesn't work with the video type you have, you might use iSquint to convert to mp4.


    P.S. your English is fine, and it's a sad reflection on some people here that you feel you have to apologise.

    I agree, your english is very good. Better than a lot of people i know down here in The South. Don't let anyone tell you, that you are hard to understand, and for sure don't apologize to them, because they can't read.

    If your files are simply chunks of the same original, larger file, you can use Terminal to put them back together. Open up Terminal (in Applications/Utilities) and try these commands (I'm assuming no unix command line knowledge, bear with me if that's not true):

    • cd foldername

      Here, "foldername" is the name of the folder where you saved the files. If they're in the desktop, that name is Desktop. If they're multiple levels down, use the / (forward-slash) to separate them. For example, cd Desktop/files goes to the folder called "files" on the desktop.

    • cat x.avi.* > x.avi

    That should do it. The 'cat' command tells it to concatenate all files beginning with x.avi... and put the result into the file 'x.avi'. Hope this helps.

    :cool: Linky works great for real video .But I think you guys misunderstand me :eek: . I mean about files which at the end of its is 001 ;002;003 and so on ,not xx.avi(01),xx.avi(02) and etc. Or anyone knows Hjsplit in Window they will know what i mean :rolleyes: .

    Well if they're files originally created (or chopped up) with Hjsplit ... then you should just look for a Mac client of that software package. This seems to be one, although I haven't used it so can't comment on how well (if at all) it works.

    To Angrist: I had tried Chunkjoiner before but it said : ''t does not support in this system'' :confused: whereas I actually use :apple: if it works ,it will not support files larger than 2 GB while my files are 4 GB :mad: ,and i attempted to find it in google but there are no software i need :(
    I really do not want to switch to Window anymore because mac is really great for me ,but in this case ,maybe i have to install window in my laptop :( (a bit disappointed ) and use a Hjsplit .
    Anyway thank for your help so much :p
