Why would anyone want to: combine / join videos

Posted 11 November 2010 - 06:36 PM

I've had a camcorder for years and have had no desire to combine files. I prefer keeping them rather short.

Is it your video player doesn't use a playlist and the play quits after each video? Is that the problem?

My software can play all or any part of a video clip (time-line playback) in whatever order I desire or Random. (mpg wmv avi vob) There is no need to waste time and space by combining videos.

The reason for joining files can't be that people are sharing them over the NET. Really huge files don't transfer easily. So one would have to be giving the Videos out on DVD's. If that's the case and you pass them out on DVD's or USB Flash Drives; just include the FREE video player program set to autorun. No joining needed ever.

So just What is "the main reason" people want to join videos?

I see a lot of net chat about "Joiners". Fooie to the Joiners. Who needs them.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

Some free sites provide 3, less than one minute sample videos. If I cut the headers & make these into one contentious video, it's like I'm getting away with something.

What sort of random play back are we talking about? Minute clips? Frames? Hours?

Using video software to join sample videos.

I miss the days of VHS rentals, when I could copy over sleeping beauty with my own version from internet video clips.
