View Full Version : [ubuntu] Combined files, right length, wrong content

I recently came into possession of some video files. They are in .avi format. I wanted to combine some into a single file. So I used the cat command:

cat fileA.avi fileB.avi > movie.avi

I ended up with a movie.avi that was the right length, but the end of the file, when played in VLC, was the end of fileA.avi.

Is this a glitch in the binary, or VLC or what?
