@webfork,
I dont see a forum link for this post, I also sent the author a report, testing this version (1.97) he still didnt fix it.
I agree that NirSoft utilities are a must have, i myself use few.
From my own experience, the author is lazy when it comes to feedback.

Anyway, to produce the bug...
-Drop a large file and sop the process before its complete, lets say at 2%
-Drop a small file and it will scan old file first.
Most likely he doesn't empty a variable when you break/stop the operation. Should be an easy fix.

webfork on 2013-07-07 16:27

@Ganamyde: Point taken. Thanks for the breakdown.

FLV Joiner v0.6

Checker on 15 Mar 2014

FLV Joiner is a fast and simple tool for combining multiple flash videos into one. The program is "lossless" meaning it does not recompress the files. Tested on FLV1/H263, VP6, AVC/H264 flash video formats and can handle VFR files without synchronization problems.

Note: Sometimes, if a file join fails, a second try will succeed.

Links fixed - thanks Checker

Thanks to Ralph for his tidbit in comment #6 about fixing issues where the joined FLV would crash the video between the joined portions by re-transcoding the entire joined FLV. (I used Video to Video instead of XMedia Recode.)

Not true, it can scan directories. The option is right there on the startup menu.

Mike.S.G. on 2011-05-20 06:43

@Gmacri

Select the 'Path' to scan if you don't want a whole drive.

mrpink on 2012-01-29 21:08

I think i'll keep this one. WinDirStat is prettier but Spacesniffer is way faster and natively portable

MobaXtermHere script works great on XP. Nice addition.

I use this software daily in all my network admin duties. It's a wonderful piece of software and I will gladly recommend this to all my friends.

MobaXterm alternative: For a much more compact suite of Native Win32 port of stand-alone GNU utilities, *provided an X-Server is not required*, consider also
http://unxutils.sourceforge.net/

package download (3.36Mb):
http://sourceforge.net/projects/unxutils/

The classic, finely honed, single-purpose Unix tools "cat | grep | head | tail ..." are all in there,
(all 118 of them), including the perennial soul-searching 'whoami' operator...;-)

Tested and found to be running fine under winXP. Recommended.
