Part 2. How to Join MP4 files on Mac?

Combining as many video files together as possible with three easy steps:

Step 1. Import MP4 media files to the media library

After installing the application on your Mac, you can either click the icon in the center of Media Library to add files directly as below:

Or record a live video by using the built-in video recording function offered in Wondershare Filmora.

Step2. Drag all the video scenes that you want to join and drop them all to the timeline below. You can adjust the order of your MP4 videos, cut off unwanted parts, or do some other editing on these files as needed.

Step3. If everything is ok, click the “Export” button to save your file. Wondershare Filmora for Mac offers you multiple ways to output your joined clip. You can choose to either export by format (where you can choose a different video format if you don’t want MP4 anymore), or by device, uploading to social networks, and even burn it to a DVD. It's that easy!

Part 3. Free Software to Join MP4 Video Files – MP4joiner

MP4joiner is a free and simple tool to merge several MP4 videos into one. It is a cross-platform application and thus you can download a Mac version for free. Pros are that it’s completely free, so quite a good choice if all you want is to simply join clips together and don’t need any further editing work on your raw footage. Cons are that as a free program it’s often been complained as malware due to the reason it can change your browser homepage and search preferences if you failed to pay attention to the popups or to check selections during the installing process. So be careful when you install it if you decide to go with it.

That's all about how to join MP4 video files on Mac devices. Have you learned it? In this regard, Wondershare Filmora will be your good helper. Download a free trial version of it to compress your videos right now:
