Join MP3's With The Windows Or Linux Command Line

Posted by Weston Ganger

I dont write about Windows often but when I do its about the command line.

I needed to do some quick and easy audio file joining. I was pleasantly surprised to find you dont need to download any additional software for once.


copy /b file1.mp3 + file2.mp3 newfile.mp3
# OR MULTIPLE FILES USING WILDCARD
copy /b *.mp3 newfile.mp3

Heres how to do it in Linux:


ffmpeg -i "concat:file1.mp3|file2.mp3" -acodec copy output.mp3

That linux command will use the first files metadata as the file
