I have a WMV files and two AVI files I need to concatenate into one video file as an AVI file. What the quickest and easiest way to do this on OSX?

What are your requirements regarding codecs? Why use the AVI container as output? – slhck Dec 10 '13 at 7:00
By "combine" do you mean simply concatenate, or do you need to do some actual video editing (cutting, effects, etc.)? Please be specific. – Robin Green Dec 10 '13 at 8:19
Simply concatenate. Its just this old video I have that is split into three parts and I want to put it on YouTube as one file rather than. MyVideo-Part1, MyVideo-Part2, etc. Id be open to any output file format that most video players will support (not wmv) – ThingWings Dec 10 '13 at 14:24
You could join them by concatenating with ffmpeg and convert to mp4. There are several threads which discuss that on Superuser. See this for instance. – Rajib Dec 10 '13 at 16:34
Im trying but it sais the directory does not exist but Im in the proper directory in terminal. ffmpeg -i "concat:videoone.wmv|videotwo.AVI|videothree.AVI" -c copy output.mp4 – ThingWings Dec 11 '13 at 0:39
