Are you planning to combine videos from different sources into a single file, but can’t seem to make it work? Well, if you also want to merge videos in a seamless way, then you have come to the right place. Ideally, there are all kinds of desktop and online solutions to merge media files like photos and videos. To make your job easier, I will let you know how to combine videos online in this guide using ten reliable solutions.
Part 1: Why you Might Need a Tool to Combine Videos?
Let’s say you have two different videos of different formats, resolutions, or bit rates. Now, you can’t just access them together without playing them on a media player separately.
Too many times, we simply want to merge two or more scenes or create a video collage while merging multiple media files. Therefore, to do that, you can simply use a reliable video editor (online or desktop). Most of these tools have a timeline-based editing feature that lets us combine multiple videos of different bit rates, resolutions, or formats in a preferred sequence of our choice.
Part 2: How to Combine Videos Instantly with Wondershare DemoCreator?
Even though there are solutions to combine videos online, I would recommend using Wondershare DemoCreator to meet your requirements. The desktop tool can help you record your system’s screen or edit your videos without any technical hassle. The application offers a timeline-based editing option with hundreds of presets, transitions, templates, and other effects.
Therefore, with the help of DemoCreator, you can readily merge videos, split them, crop videos, and do so much more. Here are some basic steps that you can take to meet all kinds of video editing needs on DemoCreator.

Step 2: Start Editing your Videos on DemoCreator
After adding your videos to the timeline at the bottom, you can make all kinds of changes to them. For instance, if you want to get rid of any unwanted parts, then you can trim those video segments. To do this, just select the clip and drag its cursor to the end. Now, you can move in the forward or backward direction to trim any unwanted part.
Similarly, you can go to the properties board of the preview area to resize your videos. Here, you can find options to scale, reposition, or even rotate your videos in arbitrary angles.
You can also select the video on the timeline and click on the crop icon from the toolbar. This will open a new window, letting you manually select the area that would be cropped in the video. The interface also presents different options to change the overall aspect ratio of the video file.
To make your videos look more appealing, you can go to the Transitions tab on DemoCreator. Here, you can browse tons of video transitions and can just drag-and-drop any transition to the timeline to add it to your videos.
Just like transitions, you can also add filters, caption effects, stickers, and so on to your videos on DemoCreator. Apart from that, you can also look for more templates in the Effects Store of DemoCreator from the side. This will let you browse hundreds of different templates that you can add to your projects and make your videos more appealing instantly.
Step 3: Preview and Export your Videos from DemoCreator
Lastly, after making all the edits, you can just play the video and check how it would look on the preview window. When you are satisfied with the results, you can click on the “Export” button from the top.
This will let you export all the combined videos as a single file from DemoCreator. You can go to any location on your system where the merged video would be saved and can also select parameters like video resolution or format to save the file however you like.
