Last week, I wanted to merge my MP3 files on my Windows 10. When I searched for related software on the Internet, I was delighted to find out that there are some results about using Windows Media Player to merge MP3 files. However, after an in-depth study, it turns out that Windows Media Player is not designated to merge videos or audios. So, I continue to search other audio merger software to combine my tracks. Luckily, I finally found 2 MP3 mergers and successfully merged my MP3 files. Now, I will introduce the complete steps in this article to merge MP3 files on Windows via these two tools.
Part 1. How do I merge MP3 tracks on Windows 10 via Joyoshare Video Joiner?
To begin with, I posted a question about which audio joiner I should use to combine MP3 files on Quora. Some netizens recommend Joyoshare Video Joiner and VLC Media Player to me. After seeing their main interface, I felt that VLC may be troublesome to use. So, I decided to test Joyoshare Video Joiner first.

Part 2. How do I combine multiple mp3 files into one with VLC?
Joyoshare Video Joiner worked well. But I just have 5 free opportunities to join MP3 files. So I determined to try the second MP3 joiner – VLC Media Player.
VLC Media Player is a powerful and free video and audio player. You can use VLC to merge videos and audios. At the same time, it has other functions, like cutting and merging MP3 files, extracting audios from videos, converting videos, and so on. It is freeware. It is compatible with various platforms, like Windows, Mac OS, Linux, iPhone, Android, etc. But it has a relatively complicated interface. Follows the steps below, and you will know how to join MP3 files in VLC Media Player.
Comparison and Conclusion:
Here is a table to help you quickly know the differences between the two software and find the most suitable tool for yourself.

In my opinion, Joyoshare Video Joiner has a more intuitive interface, so I can merge my MP3 files without any skills. VLC Media Player doesn't have a user-friendly surface, which consumes my energy to learn it. Although they both can cut MP3 files, Joyoshare can directly trim the audio before merging. As for VLC, you have to export the MP3 files after cutting. And then import them again to merge. It is so inconvenient. As a freeware, VLC is the first choice of most people. But Joyoshare is also free if you only need to join MP3 tracks no more than 5 times. Anyway, if you just want to merge MP3, VLC is nice enough. But if you want to merge and edit videos except for merging audios, Joyoshare is a better choice as it's multifunctional.
