To join a group of files into one, select those to be joined (highlight) and R-click > Group or click File > Group or simply Ctrl-G. This feature doesn't work for some versions, such as build 4450.
Give it a try.

[Edit] sorry, Group is under 'Item' not 'File'.

As meRobs said: Right click the file(s) that you've loaded.

Hi I too have been trying to join two avi files for the past few days without success.

Was using build 0.7.2.4510 and update to 0.7.3.4612 today. However I still can't get my job done.
I select both files, right click and select Group, then click the Start button. The Task Mode is left at Normal
But the results are the same when I am with 4510. At the end of the transcoding only one file generated which only consists of my 1st avi file.
I'm running WinXP pro. Any where I can look to set it right?

Are both files AVI format? And, are both the same video and audio specifications ?

I have just checked 'Group' in build 4606. It worked!
I joined 3 files with differing characteristics -- two were FLV and one, VOB. I joined & converted them to MPEG2.
It may be that build 4612 differs?

They look almost the same for me.. except the 2nd file doesn't say anything about bitrate and was very brief in the container section.

here's the properties of the 1st avi file

and this is the 2nd avi file..

Either your build of MC doesn't work for Group or it failed to convert the AVI with incomplete Properties, which may indicate a faulty/corrupted file.
Does the latter file play in MPlayer (select file and click 'Play')?
What happens if you reverse the order of the files in the queue?

I can play both files with the Mplayer.
There is no difference when I reverse the order.

Both short files were ripped from two different clips using Mediacoder. Maybe there were some errors.. for the 1st file when I go from Tag "Time > Select" a window pop out saying the 'The duration of selected file is not valid or cannot be correctly retrieved."
