4Media Video Joiner can help you merge multiple video clips. It has a very easy-to-use graphical interface. In fact, it is so simple that even novices can use it from the start with no difficulties.
Using the program is as easy as ordering the source clips in a timeline and choosing an output format. You can import files by simply dragging and dropping them onto the program’s interface. Moreover, you can browse for the files like you normally do. It is too bad that the application does not allow importing complete folders, which would simplify this process significantly. A wide range of input formats is supported. While you re-order the clips, you can also add a fade-in/fade-out transition between them and preview what the resulting video will look like.
It is an absolute pity that the program does not include any other editing function, which would turn it into a basic video editor. I feel the particular need of trimming some of the source clips to extract just segments from them. Likewise, the tool does not allow cropping the visible region of the frame or tweaking picture parameters.
Multiple output profiles are available. In order to avoid compatibility issues, most of them are identified by the names of their supporting devices. What is more, if none of these built-in presets satisfy your needs, you can modify them and save the changes for later use. Unfortunately, the tool does not allow you to merge various video files with the same format without re-converting them, which could surely save a lot of time.
To sum up, 4Media Video Joiner has the main advantage of being extremely easy to use. However, it is far from being complete. It lacks many of the authoring features that have become available in standard video converters.
