    Why can't you just open up a command prompt (konsole terminal) and use
    the command:

    cat movie.part1 movie.part2 ... movie.part8 > movie.avi

    where, of course, you have to replace 'movie.part1' etc with the actual
    names of the files?

    you can use

    cp /xxx to move into the folder where you parts are and then use the
    command.

    if you want to do it from another folder

    cat /xxx/movie.part1 /xxx/movie.part2 ... movie.part8 > /yyy/movie.avi

    where /xxx is the path to you folder where the parts are
    and /yyy is where you want the merged file to be created.

    Cheers

    I don't know that you can join split multimedia files with cat and get a
    desirable result. I haven't done that before because I wouldn't have
    imagined doing that and a simple Google turns up all sorts of supporting
    evidence the pieces won't be joined smoothly (my guess is that it's
    running the individual pieces sequentially and not re-compiling as a
    single file. This is particularly important with multimedia because the
    buffer needs to be filled with content in preparation for displaying).

    So, what is the problem you're having?
    Are you downloading and following the instructions from the software
    vendor?

    'Freebyte.com - HJSPLIT Vendor'
    (http://www.freebyte.com/hjsplit/#linux)

    Or, I my personal preference is to choose the type of format I intend
    to re-compile (eg Xvid, DivX, WMV, etc) and use those tools, it makes
    for fewer steps and usually a better result.

    As long as you are using split and cat for splitting and joining for
    transport, the result will be bit-identical at the other end and so
    won't be an issue whatever the format. You can do the same thing with
    ISO images too.

    I can agree with that... which of course assumes that you <know> the
    origins of the split files and that each file isn't individually
    playable (only playable as a single large file).
