There's probably some clever way to do it with mencoder, but the
easiest way is to use one of the many little tools that comes with
avimerge -o big.avi -i one.avi two.avi three.avi
You need to ensure the frame rates and resolution are the same &c., but
if not, transcode is probably the easiest tool with which to
Just type transcode into google.
