    is there a way to join 2 video files, but not transcode them?
    like is the 2 video files are .avi and just join them without transcoding them to a different format?

    thanks

    Under certain circumstances.

    Name the two files chronologically (e.g. 'File_1' and 'File_2') and drag them to the MPEG Streamclip window. If they open as one continuous video, click File > Save As. Perian should allow you to play most types of AVI in MPEG Streamclip.

    I don't know the exact parameters, but this will likely only work if the files are the same codec, resolution, etc.
