Added a note about films because I watched that Sintel short film created with Blender, which was in some areas even better than the work Pixar and Dreamworks are putting out commercially.

@smaragdus. Yep, not working, looks like the file is missing. I have contacted the author of the software for a fix.

Thanks, Midas! Contacted them, let's see if something comes up.

This is such a great app - which one could replace it? Need to easily join large H.264/265 videos.

@david.lynch - Handbrake has a lot of similar features and has been in development forever so probably won't stop like V2V. I've added it to the listed alternative apps.

Noted - thank you, @webfork.

Also, I've noticed that the installer version still works fine as a portable - you just have to extract using Universal Extractor.
