Merge Videos Together in Windows 10/8/7 & Mac

By Gabriel Coleman Updated: Nov. 12, 2019

Combining 2 videos or more videos together is a basic editing feature in demand. People from time to time need to put two or more video footages and slices together from GoPro, iPhone, drones, camcorders, DSLR to recreate a compelling work.

There is a whole slew of programs, apps and online merger tools capable of doing the job. But among them, some have watermarks, and most will cause image quality degradation during the process (mainly because of re-encoding). Speaking of simplicity about how to merge videos in Windows 10/8/7 or Mac computers, even some of the well-known programs leave much to be desired. Merging videos together should not be that complicated, so you don't have to glue to Shotcut, OpenShot, Windows Movie Maker, iMovie, or VSDC Free Video Editor. For ease of use and quality retention, give a crack at VideoProc (see the features below↓↓↓).

Option 1: Merge Multiple Videos into One Directly

There are many video clips of the same activity that need to be merged together with or without re-encoding for the better viewing experience, for example,

- Short clips shot by iPhone, iPad, Android phones, cameras, DSLR, GoPro, etc.

- Tutorials, training video, presentations, gameplay footages, and the like.

- Separate TV shows and movies downloaded free from online video sites.

- Ripped movie chapters and TV series on DVDs, and others.

VideoProc can simply combine video clips that are in different formats and resolutions, without worrying about quality reduction and video audio settings.

Here are the detailed steps about how to merge videos

Step 1. Import the Source Video Files
Download, install and open VideoProc; Click the Video icon on its interface to show the Video screen; Click the + Video icon and select the video you want to merge, or directly drag and drop files into the screen.

Step 2. Choose the Output Format
Choose an output format from the Target Format section. It will combine videos into one without re-encoding if your output settings (codec formats) are the same as the source files.

Step 3. Put the Video Files Together
Check the Merge box on the right side of the window to enable the merge option. Note: VideoProc can also merge videos with subtitles.

Step 4. Export the Merged Video
Press the RUN button at the bottom right corner of the Video screen to easily put video clips together.

Option 2: Put Video Clips Together to Make One Video

VideoProc can also cut out unwanted slices of a clip and merge the remaining segments into one video so that you can get your favorite parts of any footages joined. This is very helpful when you wish to remove a few seconds or minutes of dead time at the beginning of your video or unpleasant phones/drones/GoPro camera droop at the end. Or you just want to get a shorter video with smaller file size for storage space-saving, sharing to YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, etc. Use steps below to use to achieve this.

Step 1: Open VideoProc, click the Video button, then + Video icon, and choose the video you wish to join.
Step 2: Select a format as an output on the Target Format menu.
Step 3: Click the Toolbox button at the bottom of the video screen, click the Options icon next to video information to get access to cut clips. Use the slider bar to navigate to change the clip's starting time and ending time with unnecessary parts trimmed out, then you can manually fine-tune the time below.

On the right side of the Merge Video window, click the Resolution button, and choose the resolution for output from the drop-down list. Note that all the clips are combined into one video in MP4 format. Click the Done button to save the settings.

Step 4: Click the Merge button from the Toolbox list, then click the RUN button to start trimming and merging clips together without transitions.

Option 3: Combine Videos and Keep Original Video/Audio/Subtitle Tracks

It's quite surprising that VideoProc boasts the "MKV Multi-Track" feature, enabling users to merge multiple videos, audio and even subtitle tracks into one MKV container. If you don't change other video audio settings, the quality of the output will be the same and speed is super fast since it just changes the container format without re-encoding. Follow the steps below to learn how to do it.

Step 1: Open VideoProc, click Video icon, drag and drop videos you'd like to put together to the Video screen.
Step 2: After source videos load successfully, head to the targe format list at the bottom of the screen, click the "+" icon to open the output video profile window, go to Common Video Profile > General Video, scroll down and select MKV Video from the list. Click the Add button on the format window to apply the changes and close the window.
Step 3: Check the Merge box and you should see the "MKV Multi-Track" option, select its box to enable the feature.
