I've got a list of videos in the directory:


the filelist:


which is:

file 'C:/Users/Andrew/Desktop/zaz/part-1.mov'
file 'C:/Users/Andrew/Desktop/zaz/part-2.mov'
file 'C:/Users/Andrew/Desktop/zaz/part-xxx.mov'
file 'C:/Users/Andrew/Desktop/zaz/part-800.mov'.

When using the command:

ffmpeg -f concat -i C:\Users\Andrew\Desktop\ffmpeg\bin\zaz\list.txt -c copy output

to merge all the parts into a single .mov file, I get the following error:

C:\Users\Andrew\Desktop\ffmpeg\bin>ffmpeg -f concat -i  
C:\Users\Andrew\Desktop\ffmpeg\bin\zaz\list.txt -c copy output

What am I doing wrong?

If your video files are in C:\Users\Andrew\Desktop\ffmpeg\bin\zaz you should change the list.txt like this:

file C:\Users\Andrew\Desktop\ffmpeg\bin\zaz\part-1.mov'
file C:\Users\Andrew\Desktop\ffmpeg\bin\zaz\part-2.mov'
file C:\Users\Andrew\Desktop\ffmpeg\bin\zaz\part-xxx.mov'
file C:\Users\Andrew\Desktop\ffmpeg\bin\zaz\part-800.mov'
