How to join videos into one file and reduce video file size

  • Clip Merge Website

  • Sometimes you wanna share your videos to your family or friends. But the videos are in couple of files and they are big in file size. How to merge these videos to one file with much smaller file size? With Clipmerge, it’s easy.
    Just drag and drop your video files to Clipmerge, then set the order. If you wanna merge the videos without quality loss, please uncheck this button.Click on Merge button to continue. This popup panel is for further settings. You can change the bitrate here. Bigger number with higher video quality and bigger file size. Smaller number with lower video quality and smaller file size. That’s your choice. Or just leave it by default 3000. Mostly you can reduce 5 times of the file size without losing video quality.
    We suggest you to use videos with exactly same video format. But if you have videos in different format, different frame size or different frame rate, you can set a fixed frame size and frame rate here.
    Since all of my 4 videos are from the same Gopro camera, I just click on OK button to continue. Then input your file name and choose a folder, Save and wait. It’s a video compressing and merging process and It might take a very long waiting. Ok, it’s done, let me check the file size. Oh, it’s just 52MB, way smaller than these original videos. Let me play the video.
    Clipmerge is available on Mac App Store and we’re keeping updating it. Thank you.

    PremiereSRT Question and Answer

    Go to PremiereSRT homepage.

    Important notice: Don’t upgrade your Pr 2017.
    Pr 2017 newest version changed a lot about Title, it makes PremiereSRT not working. We are trying to fix this but it seems Adobe got its own problem. When you export a prtl file from new version Pr, then you import it back in Pr, Pr just keeps crashing. I think it may take some time for Adobe to fix this. I will adapt to the new version as soon as possible. Sorry for the inconvenience Caused.

    Most problem might be solved by following these instructions. If problem is still there, please email to and attach your original xml, SRT and prtl Title file, note the version of Finalsrt and FCPX as well.

    1. Only Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2014 and up is supported. Check your Pr version.

    2. If there is warning message importing subtitled xml to Pr, please try to import the original xml to Pr to check if this original xml is ok. If it’s not ok with original xml, then the subtitled xml won’t work either.

    3. Cannot see subtitles in Pr? Try to zoom out the timeline to fit the screen. This is because the SRT subtitles may not start from 0, it starts like 01:00:00.00 or even more. You can adjust the timecode to start from 0.

    4. SRT file error: Check if your SRT file is in standard format, sometimes enduser doesn’t get a SRT, though its name is in .srt extension. Standard format should be exactly like the following. Note, the last 3-digit is millisecond, not Frames.

    00:00:00,160 –> 00:00:01,410
    You’ve been placed on hold.

    00:00:01,560 –> 00:00:02,220
    Please wait.

    5. SRT file encoding error: If the srt is not acceptable, please try to open srt file in your editor and save it to a new .srt file with UTF-8 encoding.

    6. Cannot align center: Please drag on the canvas to make a subtitle input box, NOT just click once to input.

    7. Error message about prtl Title–We found that you SRT subtitles has 2-line subtitle, but your prtl title template has only 0-line. Please make sure there is only one title box in prtl file. Here is a sample title for your reference.

    8. Align to bottom and Arabic Right to left aligning: Make sure check the box Align to bottom or Right-To-Left  on PremiereSRT interface.

    9. SRT italic: Many users want PremeireSRT to mirror those Italic symbol in SRT file to Premiere. It’s so complicated since descriptions in PRTL has too many different rules to apply to even just one font. Some font has Italic, some doesn’t. The font has a different name when you apply Italic. So we cannot do this properly.
