Concatenate multiple video files using the familiar `cat` syntax
This utility concatenates multiple video files using the familiar
cat command syntax. It is designed to make concatenation of
splitted similar spec files(e.g. dash cam recordings) easier for
regular users that don't want other fancy features.
# Install the package
sudo snap install ffmpeg-cat
# If your input files lived in /media or /mnt connect the
# confinement plug to allow access
sudo snap connect ffmpeg-cat:removable-media
This is a text-based program which should be run in a text terminal.
It should be easy to insert the input file arguments via simply
dragging the input files(assuming to be sorted in alphabetical order)
from a file manager to a text terminal emulator(like Konsole).
Note that currently only the Matroska container format(MKV) is
supported as the output file format, as it is more flexible on what
kind of video/audio streams it can encapsulate. Support for other
media container formats can be implemented if there's significant
need for the feature.
Environment variables that can customize the program's behavior
FFCAT_DROP_SRC_FILES: Whether to automatically remove the input files
after a successful conversion.
Default value: false
Supported values: false, true
Refer the issue tracker for limited, community-based support:
Swap out openSUSE_Leap_15.5 for openSUSE_Leap_15.4 or openSUSE_Tumbleweed if you’re using a different version of openSUSE.
With the repository added, import its GPG key:
sudo zypper --gpg-auto-import-keys refresh
Finally, upgrade the package cache to include the new snappy repository:
sudo zypper dup --from snappy
Snap can now be installed with the following:
sudo zypper install snapd
You then need to either reboot, logout/login or source /etc/profile to have /snap/bin added to PATH.
Additionally, enable and start both the snapd and the snapd.apparmor services with the following commands:
