Gihosoft Free Video Joiner 1.0 New
FREEWAREFILES EDITOR'S REVIEW
Gihosoft Free Video Joiner is a powerful program that allows users to easily merge videos for non-stop watching. The software allows the combination of multiple videos of different formats (MP4, MKV, AVI, MOV videos) in three simple steps.
Using Gihosoft Free Video Joiner
We did not have any difficulty in installing Gihosoft Free Video Joiner and the installer allowed us to launch it immediately after installation. The simple graphical user interface displayed the three steps required to merge videos.
We could click the button for importing videos or simply drag and drop the required videos onto the program window. Whenever we dropped a video, it started playing immediately. The import button enabled us to load multiple videos simultaneously. Thumbnails of the loaded videos appeared on the lower part of the user interface, giving us the opportunity to remove the ones that we did not want to merge. We could also change the order of the files to be merged.
The program allowed us to load videos of different formats and merge all of them into one video file of a given format.
When we had loaded all the videos that we wanted to merge into a single file, we clicked the "Save" button. A dialog window appeared where we specified the destination folder and desired video format. We could choose among MOV, WMV, AVI and MP4.
We clicked the "OK" button on the dialog window and the software started the merging process. It displayed the progress in percentage, with a button placed on the lower part of a pop-up window for aborting the process.
When the merging process was over, a pop-up window appeared asking us whether we wanted to play the merged video with our default video player.
- Support importing of commonly used video formats such as MP4, MKV, AVI, MOV, WMK, FLV and more.
- Join videos at a high speed in a lossless way
If you would like to merge videos into a single file, then Gihosoft Free Video Joiner will simplify the process for you. The program allows you to add multiple videos even if they are of different file formats. However, it does not display any information about the loaded videos.

"So slow it's still going and no end in sight."
Review Date: 2017-03-11
Pros: Simple to use
Cons: For the size of the GUI, there's simply no excuse for the controls being so small and poorly marked, but after first use, that doesn't really matter. What Really, really matters is how amazingly slow it is considering it's not re-encoding. I joined two files and as I write, it's going through its tenth "stage" of saving. WHAT? by comparison, I has a need just hours ago to join the same two videos, and I used a program called VideoToVideo. It joined them flawlessly in a couple minutes, preserving the closed captions in the process. Well, now it's on stage 12 without any sort of time indicator for completion, and it's been about fifteen minutes. I'll see it to completion, but for the purposes of this review and future use of the program, I'm done, but I'll bet the closed captions are gone. They shouldn't be since I'm outputting to AVI, but this simple program has turned into a simple nuisance. Stage 14 - this is like the Energizer Bunny.
Other Thoughts: 15 - I give up after all.
