    Hello everyone

    I really need your help. I want to join the many .mov files I have on my MBP. I am trying to burn a blu ray disc and I can't add more than 98 files.. So if I join them, then there won't be so many files to add.

    Please, help. What software can I use to accomplish this without losing quality?

    Thank you very very much for your help

    Quicktime. Open a movie, and the drag and drop the others into the Quicktime window.

    Hi,

    Thanks for your help. I opened a video file, drag and dropped the rest of the files into the quicktime movie.. and then went to file - export - to 1080p.
    But the file size of the merged video is smaller than the original files. Doesn't that mean that the file quality has degraded?

    Thanks in advance!

    MPEG Streamclip should be able to merge the files without re-encoding the entire stream.

    Hmm...sounds like it. I wouldn't have thought that it would have though.
