Hello, please add this example to FAQ "How can I join video files?"

Concatenate two VOB files:

ffmpeg -i "concat:VTS_01_1.VOB|VTS_01_2.VOB" -f mpeg -c copy output.mpeg

Concatenate two MKV, MP4 files with H264 video stream:

ffmpeg -i file-01.mkv -f mpegts -c copy -bsf:v h264_mp4toannexb file-01.mpeg.ts
ffmpeg -i file-02.mkv -f mpegts -c copy -bsf:v h264_mp4toannexb file-02.mpeg.ts

ffmpeg -isync -i "concat:file-01.mpeg.ts|file-02.mpeg.ts" -f matroska
-c copy output.mkv

Thanks to all FFMPEG team for hard work!
