How to Merge Two Video Files Together

In addition to commercials, you can produce videos to issue product demos, customer testimonials, corporate announcements and marketing packages. When it comes to distributing this content to your audience, you can utilize a file delivery service like Dropbox or YouSendIt, or a video sharing service like YouTube or Vimeo. If you have a pair of videos that you want to merge into a single clip, you will need to combine the media within a special program before you release it to your associates. MPEG Streamclip, iWisoft Free Video Converter and Freemake Video Converter are some examples of freeware that you can use to accomplish this task.
