    Hi,

    I got two .m4v files that I want to edit (join) into one larger file. The sum of the two .m4v files are less than 4GB. I searched this forum and didn't find what I want. I looked at iMovie and that didn't work either (can't seem to get past the HD thing).

    Please advise...

    If you have quicktime pro, you can easily "join" those two together. Just open them both on separate players, then copy / paste the other on the other and save. No re-encoding should be needed if the files are both same format. Check the short video i made to illustrate: http://koti.mbnet.fi/pviljaka/quicktime_join.mov :)

    Thanks Johto. I'm sold. Please do not delete your video yet; I may need to view it again for reference.

    Works like a charm. Thanks for the pointer, Johto.
