Gaming Video Montage

When playing videogames I record (some) gameplay and cut and combine them into video montages and upload them to my YouTube Channel. See Channel Videos and the corresponding playlists, as well as a selection as subpages here.

I use OBS (“Open Broadcaster Software”) with a 60s replay buffer to save gameplay highlights as video to disk.

I then use Videocutter (which I created myself for a lack of useful alternatives) to watch, mark and cut out the video portions of interest (highlight portion of the 60s video).

Videos are prepared in folders.

Finally, I use a simple batch script that makes use of ffmpeg to combine all video scenes into a combined video.


Batch script 1: create-combine.txt.bat - creates a file combine.txt with all mp4 file filenames within the folder as a line.

cd %~dp0
(for %%i in (*.mp4) do @echo file '%%i') > combine.txt
IF ERRORLEVEL 1 pause

Batch script 2: combine.bat - combines all source video files in combine.txt into a mp4 video.

cd %~dp0
rem ffmpeg -f concat -i combine.txt -c copy combined-concat.mp4
ffmpeg -f concat -safe 0 -i combine.txt combined-reenc.mp4
IF ERRORLEVEL 1 pause
