Join video files Nautilus script

The command to join video files with mencoder looks something like this:

mencoder -oac copy -ovc copy -o out.avi in1.avi in2.avi in3.avi

There are also other parameters one would want to set depending on the video file formats. To simplify this process of merging videos, download

and place the file in ~/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts

Then, simply select and right click video files in Nautilus and choose Scripts -> Join video files

The script will try to set the correct options based on the video files. Files are joined in sequence according to their file names in alphabetical order. The output file is named using the name of the first video file; v1.mpg + ... => v1-joined.mpg As shown in the command above, the video and audio streams are copied, not re-encoded.
