25 Well, I tried to go to sleep and come back to this tomorrow. I couldn't
26 sleep so here I am again. While laying there I came up with a idea. I
27 stitched the first two videos together into a temporary file. Then I
28 stitched the temporary file to the 3rd video. The sound is off but it
29 sort of resets when it reached the stitch point so it is a good bit
30 closer than it was.
32 If I ever get me a video camera, I'm going to know to not break up
33 videos if I ever plan to put them back together again. It appears that
34 when you break the video, it is like humpty dumpty. You just can't
35 quite get it back together again.
37 At least this way is faster tho. Thanks to all for the ideas. I'm
38 still testing things.
