FAQs about Combining MOV Files
Does combining MOV files compress the size?
No, it doesn't. Whatever merger you use, you can't change the whole size of your MOV files unless you convert them to a format that will reduce the size, such as MP4.
Why can't I open the combined MOV file?
That could be a malfunction of your video merger, especially when you combine videos of different formats. You can try recombining your MOV files again. Also, you can change the exported video's extension to MP4 to check whether it can be played.
How can I combine MOV files in QuickTime Player?
You can drag and drop your MOV clips to QuickTime Player and then the "Done" button to combine MOV files.
Why can't my video merger open the MOV files?
That may be because your video editor can't recognize the MOV files. Also, if your video editor's codecs are missing or incompatible, it can't open the files.
Why does it take so long to combine MOV files online?
With an online editor, it costs your network data to upload, process, and download your MOV videos. If your network connection is unstable, the whole process will definitely be prolonged.
