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
