I am sure, depending on the codec, you could join the binarily using a byte().  Use the open/close functions to attach/detach from the file and the get/put functions to retrieve/write the contents.  I would caution you though most files of this type, even if you can join the binary directly, will have headers you will need to update and/or dispose of.  Most codecs however, and especially if you are joiningfiles mode of different codecs, will require fairly extensive coding to get this sort of thing to work.  Considering all of this, personally, I would suggest you use a third party module built to do the actual manipulation of the video.  Depending on the module's or third party's licensing, you should be able to distrubute this stuff in some fashion or another, or if all else fails, write to the third party to ask..

What I am saying is basically there is no good answer without involving someone who is a professional in video codecs and formats (not necessarilly a VB programmer).  If you still want to do it though, realistically for someone like yourself, you should search for libraries/components from other people that do this sort of thing.  Any sample code/examples useful for you will need to come from that other person or once you have the component come back with specific questions about its use and I am sure someone can help through that.  I haven't looked at them but I have a feeling that the links given by the other individual may be a good place to start looking..  Good luck!!
