[FFmpeg-user] How to concatenate multiple mp4 files without re-encoding to an intermediate format

Many thanks !
With a minor correction (required by ffmpeg) it worked.
ffmpeg -i "concat:concat.ts|concat2.ts" -c copy -absf aac_adtstoasc concatAll.mp4
All of the commands executed very fast since no re-encoding was necessary. This was our goal after all since we're processing a lot files. Adding round of transcoding was not an option.
