Question 1: “Is there a guide to merge multiple DVD titles into one single output file? For example, combining the main movie, the outtakes feature, and the "making of" feature into a single seamless output file that plays all three beginning to end. MP4/MKV desired but Xvid is ok too. I have tried the recommended programs "mkvmerge" and "DVD2one" but the documentation just doesn’t cover what I want to do. Is there a cookbook guide somewhere? How can I merge several DVDs into one tile?”

Question 2: “How Do I Combine Files from One DVD And Another to Create Single DVD? Here’s what I need to do; I have 2 DVD’s – they’re regular DVD-R discs, nothing official. The 2 DVD’s consist of a concert, but one half of the concert is on 1 DVD, and the other half of the concert is on the other DVD. I just want to be able to combine these into one file so that I can then author it into a single DVD so the show is contained all on one DVD rather than 2. Is there a way to do this without losing any quality? Since they’re DVD’s I guess the files are considered .VOB or that’s just the same as mpeg2 since these are DVD’s correct? Any info on how to do this task would be a big help. Thanks a lot.”

If you also have such kind of needs, this guide would be perfect for you. Here we would like to introduce 3 different tools to help you merge selected DVD titles into one file in detail. Just check the below content and choose the one that meets you most.

Remove unneeded angles, Disable menu buttons to material you have removed, Delete menus for selected language, Cut out credits or embedded studio logos, Remove warning/rating screens, Remove menu transitions, Split a DVD into 2 discs. Starting with v 3.0 DvdReMake can be used to combine 2 full dvds (DvdReMake Pro – 4 dvds) together so that they can be burned on one dvd disk. This means FULL – keeping original menus, languages, everything.

Part 3: Best Way to Merge Selected DVD Titles into One – Leawo DVD Ripper

DvdReMake is only available for Windows users and has been discontinued for years, while DVDShrink is a little bit too complicated for even veteran.
