This is my scenery: I have a small spy camera and use a DVR to save the
video. It create a file every 60 minutes.

Now I want to join this videos with the same quality from it original.

I am doing a experiment: I want to show the exactly quality from this
camera. I read a tutorial like
I am not sure if I did a good job. I open the result video and it look like
to have problem with index, because it is a little weird when I play the
video with a video player. It is difficult go to a time or just go fast 10
second ahead.The original video didn't have the same problem. (I join two
video of 800MB and it create the 1600MB file).

The things I want to do is:
- Join video files
- Maybe cut some part in the start or end of the film
- Delete the audio

I can't believe I am not making it work :( What command like did you
