How to Join / Combine dv Video Files in Linux

By | 2011/07/03

To join multiple dv files into one, simply use the cat command.

$ cat 01file.dv 02file.dv 03file.dv > final.dv

No re-encoding or other processing required!

This is often useful after using programs such as dvgrab or others that split your miniDV capture into 1 or 2GB individual files.
