Merge MP3 files with the Unix command cat
Authored by: m5m on Dec 17, '10 06:53:28PM

There's something wrong with the concatenated file as you suggest dcottle, but I don't know what it is. Neither iTunes nor Quicktime can see past the first file's length in the resulting file. If I open that file in Fission, then save over the audio without changing anything, THAT file is readable normally by quicktime/iTunes. It's my best workaround for the problem that I don't have the expertise to fathom. Any expert tweeks to this thread to make it not suffer from this serious problem would be appreciated. I'm unable to understand how it could work effectively for anyone... Perhaps it's a more recent version of quicktime that's not reading the headers the way it used to???
