_mhandler.InputPath = RootPath + "\\contents\\videoclips";
_mhandler.OutputPath = RootPath + "\\contents\\finalvideos"; // Pass two or more video clip names through FileNames property. _mhandler.FileNames = new string[] { "sample_01.mp4", "sample_02.mp4" }; // Set final output filename through OutputFileName property, it may be without extension. _mhandler.OutputFileName = "full_video"; // Set final output extension e.g ".avi" will force output in .avi format. _mhandler.OutputExtension = ".avi"; // Set width and height of final output. _mhandler.Width = 320; _mhandler.Height = 240; // Set all settings that is required for encoding final output. e.g in case of .avi we set TargetFileType. _mhandler.TargetFileType = "pal-vcd"; // Call join video function to process all settings and create output media. VideoInfo info = _mhandler.Join_Videos();
