    Hello everyone,

    Well, it has been a few days researching on a suitable auto or semi-automatic way of mass merging files this way. Basically, what I want to achieve is inserting the same clip, before a bunch of other clips. Something, that I truly believe to be damn useful for many IM purposes, not only in regard of using some already edited content, but also for overriding some copyright problems when uploading to certain sites.

    In this case I´ve been trying with .flv, .mp4, .avi files (always merging same codecs), and I didn´t succeed after testing ALL THE PROGRAMS AVAILABLE in both Windows and OSx. Believe me, I´ve tried them all. The only ones which are supposed to handle quite well this quite of tasks are from Videocharge: Watermark Master and Videocharge Studio. None of them could perform correctly the task.

    Now I´m trying to find some way to achieve the same thing either by shell, unix scripting... I don´t care. I just don´t want to mount Ubuntu only for these tasks. I´m not a programmer, but I´m quite stuborn (which sometimes leads me to neverending nights) so I would appreciate some help or guidance from anyone keen and good enough of batch video processing.

    Right now, the only useful paths I´ve found drive me into either using mencode or ffmpeg through commands, but I am not able to perform the merge on batch.

    Thanks in advance for any help or guidance,
