I am sure this is a fairly simple trick, however, its not something we use so I don't know how to do it..

As we receive files from FTP I want to tie them all together in one larger file..
I am in a rough situation here w/a few locations, were all incoming traffic is blocked, and we are unable to tell the IT team what it is we are doing. I can FTP the video out, but with the small files used in FTP our analysis software does not work right..

Rather then trying to re-build the load to a batch load in our software application, I assume there is a way to automagically create one large file from the smaller files.

I'm guessing you're looking for something that will detect a new file upload and append it to an existing file. I haven't seen any software out that 'automatically' appends or joins video files like this.

Unless you're up for a custom programming gig, your best bet is to periodically manually join several files. There are a lot of utilities on the market that can do this as long as your codec and video specs are the same from file to file. I use Aurora Media Workshop for common video splicing tasks.

If you use Linux at all, or any environment that you can compile source, there is a very powerful tool called ffmpeg. It can be found here: http://ffmpeg.mplayerhq.hu/

You should be able to wrap this to put your images into a mpeg automatically. Specifically: http://ffmpeg.mplayerhq.hu/faq.html#SEC12

Hope that helps.
XSNRG in everything!
