    I just ripped my Blu-Ray version of Planet Earth to MP4's.

    Each Chapter was burned as a separate MP4 file.

    There are 10 Chapters in total, so I have 10 separate MP4 files.

    Each file is around 1.78GB at 3700kbps at 720p.

    What I want to do now is merge them together into one file. Then add custom chapters. Anyways, I have Quicktime Pro 7 and basically have been copying them all into one file, but once I try to copy the 7th file/chapter into the cumulative 6 previous files that are now in one continuos file, it doesn't really add anything.

    Is it not working because there is a limit on the file size of the file of an MP4? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Why do you want 1 giant mp4 with everything? why not an mkv?
    To add chapters you could just manually add them in a program like MetaX.
    You might try mpegstreamclip.

    I want one mp4 because I consider it one movie, and it has to be mp4 because of the apple tv.

    I tried joining clips in mpeg streamclip but it keeps returning a file with 0kb, since I am using the Save As... function because I don't want to re-encode all of the stuff.

    Adding chapters is not a problem I can easily do that once I have the whole file in one.

    If anyone has anymore advice it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
