I attempted to fix timecode breaks using MPEG Streamclip and then did a "Save As" but the resulting file still had the same timecode breaks when I opened the new file in MPEG Streamclip.

After hunting around online I found vcdgear which I used to separate the MPEG file into parts where the timecode breaks occurred. I also selected the -fix option to "fix broken mpeg blocks". The resultant individual files showed no timecode breaks in MPEG Streamclip.

I then used mpgtx to join the files again and opened the newly rejoined video in MPEG Streamclip. No timecode errors were detected. However, upon using the "Check Stream" feature, MPEG Streamclip reported lots of "fixing video at" and about 6 "data breaks"!

Can someone explain how any of these utilities can be used to actually repair an MPEG file???

The only app I am aware of which joins .mpg files. Awkward interface in many ways: file title list always defaults to too small and needs to be dragged open, and the output file naming area, which is also too small, requires a useless checkbox be selected, to give two examples. With a redesign of the user interface this would be a much better product.

Was looking for something to join my camera mpgs together. This works great! Granted, its not QT Pro, but for what it is you can't go wrong.

A brilliant little quick and dirty app! Much faster than any pro software if all you want to do is split a gigantic file. THANKS!

Usefull fast & looks really good plus is really easy to use . I wanted to join some MPEG1 files into a showreel but the resulting single file skipped 3 sec (approx) of material from the front of each of the items so it was not much use.

Did what it advertises quickly and effectively. Could definately use some work on the interface. It's not very pretty to look at. Also you should be able to drag files into the drawer instead of onto a button, that's counter-intuitive. Could also use a catchier name. All in all I would suggest this program to my friends.
