How to join .MOV videos?

I have several .mov video clips that I'd like to join into one continuous video.
Is there any easy way to do this without getting into a full video editor, like maybe from the command line?
Thanks guys.

In a command line try ffmpeg or avconv (which replaced ffmpeg...?). The syntax might be not much fun...

But "avidemux" with a GUI will do that, IIRC without re-encoding, quite easily if the files are the same type and size (pixels).

IIRC avidemux not in the repos but you can get a appimage or some such. Also the windows version runs great under wine.

OpenShot Video Editor is probably your best bet - it's not to difficult to use.

Hi Offcenter,

I just read your post and the good replies to it. Here are my thoughts on this as well.

+1 for using a video editor like OpenShot, Kdenlive, Shotcut, Olive, Avidemux, etc... You can easily add your videos and then add them to a timeline next to one another, then create a new video (render) of them.

"LossLessCut" and "VidCutter" are also supposed to be able to join videos now as well as being superb simple video trimmer cutters.

Another really fast and simple option is to use MKVToolNix-gui to add the videos then create a new mkv video.

Hope this helps ...
