If you have media files with exactly the same codec and codec parameters you can concatenate them as described in " Concatenation of files with same codecs ". If you have media with different codecs you can concatenate them as described in " Concatenation of files with different codecs " below.
The demuxer is more flexible — it requires the same codecs, but different container formats can be used; and it can be used with any container formats, while the protocol only works with a select few containers. You can read about the concat demuxer in the documentation. This demuxer reads a list of files and other directives from a text file and demuxes them one after the other, as if all their packets had been muxed together. All files must have the same streams same codecs, same time base, etc.
Create a file mylist. Note that these can be either relative or absolute paths. Then you can stream copy or re-encode your files:.
It is possible to generate this list file with a bash for loop, or using printf. If your shell supports process substitution like Bash and Zsh , you can avoid explicitly creating a list file and do the whole thing in a single line. This would be impossible with the concat protocol see below. The concat demuxer opens the referenced files only when they are needed.
This allows us to swap the referenced files atomically behind the demuxers back to be able to use the concat demuxer as a changeable live source. Check out the following example file list. Combine this with infinite looping and you are done:. Concatenation does not work if the next clip for does not exist at the moment, because decoding won't start until the whole list is read. However, it is possible to refer to another list at the end of the current list.
The following script provides an example for this mechanism:. Note that recursively referencing playlist files will cause ffmpeg to eventually run out of file descriptors or other resources because ffmpeg only closes the playlist file when the playlist has finished, but in the example above because of the recursive chaining none of the playlist files actually end.
While the demuxer works at the stream level, the concat protocol works at the file level. Certain files MPEG-2 transport streams, possibly others can be concatenated. With H. If you're using a system that supports named pipes, you can use those to avoid creating intermediate files. The additional -y switch is needed to force ffmpeg to write to existing files temp1 and temp2 , which are the named pipes. In many cases, input files will have different codecs or different codec properties, which makes it impossible to use any of the above methods.
See the concat filter documentation for more info. The filter works on segments of synchronized video and audio streams. All segments must have the same number of streams of each type, and that will also be the number of streams at output.
Note: Filters are incompatible with stream copying ; you can't use -c copy with this method. Since you have to re-encode the video and audio stream s , and since re-encoding may introduce compression artifacts, make sure to add proper target bitrate or quality settings. See the encoding guides?
For the concat filter to work, the inputs have to be of the same frame dimensions e. A handful of other attributes have to match as well, like the stream aspect ratio. Refer to the documentation of the filter for more info. Let's say we have three files that we want to concatenate — each of them with one video and audio stream. The concat filter command would look like this:. Now, let's dissect that command. In this case, video stream 0 [0:v:0] and audio stream 0 [0:a:0] from input 0 input1.
This is the concat filter itself. The filter then concatenates these segments and produces two output streams. Note that the quotes around the filter section are required. You can then either re-use these streams in other filters, or map them to the output file :. This tells ffmpeg to use the results of the concat filter rather than the streams directly from the input files. There is a Bash script called mmcat which was useful for older versions of ffmpeg that did not include the concat filter.

Concatenating media files
The concat function in the main pandas namespace does all of the heavy lifting of performing concatenation operations along an axis while performing optional set logic union or intersection of the indexes if any on the other axes. Before diving into all of the details of concat and what it can do, here is a simple example:. Like its sibling function on ndarrays, numpy. If a dict is passed, the sorted keys will be used as the keys argument, unless it is passed, in which case the values will be selected see below. Any None objects will be dropped silently unless they are all None in which case a ValueError will be raised.
