    Weird film format

    I got a film cut in 10 parts, looking this way:
    Code:
    When.Harry.Met.Sally..001  When.Harry.Met.Sally..005  When.Harry.Met.Sally..009
    When.Harry.Met.Sally..002  When.Harry.Met.Sally..006  When.Harry.Met.Sally..010
    When.Harry.Met.Sally..003  When.Harry.Met.Sally..007
    When.Harry.Met.Sally..004  When.Harry.Met.Sally..008
    Nautilus refers to file no.1 as .avi and to all the others as to program.

    How do I paste these files together?

    This should work:

    open up a terminal in the folder with the parts and run:

    Code:
    cat * > When.Harry.Met.Sally.avi

    Thank you a a lot
    I tried this and it seemed to work in the beginning, but when opening the film file, VCL states the file is broken.
    After fixing it, the film doesn't really reach the end...

    Any clue about this?

    It's not a format, it's the file has just been split into parts.

    Any chance I can find out in which part of the split file the bit is missing?

    Re: Weird film format

    Think the best way is when you use the "cat" and specify each file in turn
    Code:
     1@a:~$cat file.001 file.002 file.003 > movie.avi
    One might be inserted out of order..

    You could try using a joining app like lxsplit or the frontend gtksplit or via wine both hjsplit or glue.
    They should tell you if you are missing parts before joining the file.
