Merge/join video files, GoPro, Git2 etc. without encoding

Dear peoples, here is a batch script to merge(concatenate) your action cam video files into one file without going through the process of re-encoding the whole thing.

This especially usefull for actioncam footage, like GoPro, Gitup Git2, SJCam, etc.

The script makes use of FFmpeg, so make sure you download it first: https://www.ffmpeg.org/download.html

set path2exe="C:\Program Files\ffmpeg-20160813-6612d04-win64-static\bin\ffmpeg.exe"
(for %%i in (*.mp4) do @echo file '%%i') > list.txt
%path2exe% -f concat -i list.txt -c copy output.mp4
del list.txt

  1. Paste this code in Notepad
  2. Change the path2exe parameter to the path where your ffmpeg.exe file is
  3. Change .mp4 to the filetype that you ant to merge
  4. Save the script as xxxxx.bat, and place it next to the files you want te merge.
    MAKE SURE THERE ARE NO OTHER FILES OF THE SAME TYPE IN THAT FOLDER!!!
  5. Make sure theat there is enough free space on your hard drive to save the file
  6. Double click the .bat file and wait :-)

Hope this is usefull!
