Windows 7: Free Video Joining Program ?

Ive just looked at the solution center How to burn a movie to a DVD in Windows Live Movie Maker. Apparently when you select the DVD option it launches Windows DVD Maker as the final stage and you can select your burning options there. Sounds like it may be doing a double conversion though.

Thanks for all the replies Guys but I found this little gem courtesy of File Hippo

Free Video Converter - Convert Video Formats Free - MP4 MPEG AVI DVD HD FLV

Does exactly what I want and is quite excellent and of course free.

I thought you wanted to join videos instead of converting them?

Interesting program indeed (on paper). Have to try it out. Thanks Steve for finding it.

I just tried it. Like the neat and clear interface. Have not checked all the options, but it seems to be a bit plain. I joined two 25MB WMV videos - output WMV too. It took 2 min 45 sec. About the same as WLMM.

I usually use this program which takes 3 seconds for the same operation - and it is completely lossless. My videos are usually several hundred MBs - so I lose patience with slower programs.

I absolutely agree.
I hate when files are being recoded unnecessarily. This always means another quality loss plus a lot of time wasted.

Well, I guess it is for the "occasional user". But for serious editing it does not have enough function. I use lighten/darken video very often and also cropping. But if you want a plain format conversion and paste pieces together at the same time, it is an option.

I sometimes have to reformat my videos to make them smaller - because on my free vimeo account I only have 500MB upload allowance per week. For more (a lot more), it would cost $60 per year. And YouTube accepts only max. 15 minute clips - although those can be up to 2GB.
