I think that in case of MTS format this may be not 100% correct,
but may work for some uses:
 cat 2022-12-30_* > output.mts (on *nix)
But because you obviously on Windows, then probably:
 type 2022-12-30_* > output.mts ('type' is a windows command)
(not sure 'type' is bug free reading large files, note 'cat for
windows' exist too somewhere):
Also may try 'avidemux' http://www.avidemux.org
(File->open, File->Append)
Also, surfing the net, one day I came across this:
But I just bookmarked it and never downloaded/tested, so be aware of
possible malware-like features e.t.c.
