MPG is a video format for movies that are distributed on the Internet. It is one of the most popular file formats because MPG can make streaming and downloading much faster than other video formats. Some people may want to join different sections of movies with MPG format to make a new video. Then, which video merger should you use? This guide will introduce two best ways to combine MPG videos, including both online and offline video merging tools.
Top 1. Merge MPG Files Online - Clideo
If you just want to merge MPG files but no other operations, like editing, I highly recommend Clideo. Clideo is an online merger freeware, so you don't need to spend time to download it. However, uploading and downloading MPG files to Clideo is very time-consuming, which are much longer than the merging progress. So if you consider about the time, you can skip this tool and move to the offline software mentioned below.
Clideo can merge MPG files into a large one without damaging its quality. With Clideo, you can change the video size, like 1:1 or 16:9. You can also add crossfade effect. But you cannot cut or edit videos.
Steps to merge MPG files by Clideo:
Step 1: Select MPG files from your PC, Google Drive, Dropbox, or URL;
Step 2: Choose the output format (MPG or others);
Step 3: Rearrange the order of the videos;
Step 4: Add crossfade effect and select the video size (optional);
Step 5: Click the Merge button and then download the merged videos.
