After 73 views and no answer in the Q and A thread I thought I would give the same post a try in here.

I'm using CM7 right now but I think all roms save videos recorded with Epic as m4v. I need to combine a bunch of recordings and then upload them to youtube. I can't find a good PC based program that joins m4v's well. I just want to combine them not re-encode.

Any suggestions?

I've to together some with Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 video editing software and then exported as one video. I think most high end video editing platforms will also do it but I don't know. I doubt you would want to purchase this though just to do that. You may have to do some research of different products to find a cheaper solution.

Have you tried mediacoder?

YouTube has a built in video editor I think...

Thanks for all the replies everyone.

@toadlife Mediacoder may work (even though that program is NOT very noob friendly) and I have other video apps that will allow me to re-encode into other formats but I don't want to have to re-encode. I just want to join. I'm going to be recording a lot of video using my phone and I will need to join a lot of these files. I don't really need to do much editing, just joining.

@marcusant If you know of a way using Youtube to join videos together, please tell me how. I can't seem to figure out how.

Media coder has the ability to copy the streams without re-encoding them. I've used it to take the raw audio tracks out of video files, but you're right, it's definitely NOT noob friendly. I've had to spend quite a bit of time getting configured correctly at times.

nice Made me laugh today thanks.

@schnowdapowda I'll give avidemux a try although given the name of the program I sense that I might be re-encoding using that but thanks for the suggestion. I'll report back after trying.

@toadlife I'm up for the challenge if you could point me in the right area of the settings to use mediacoder.

Okay so I tried avidemux. I figured out how to append the video files and then I save the file (I'm not sure which container to choose so I chose mp4). It seems to save the file fast enough but when I jump ahead to the appended sections I get slow motion. The audio is playing fine but the video is slow motion.
