Any file with an .mp4 extension is a video file that uses the MPEG-4 compression. This compression allows the file to be a reasonable size and the file to be read by any media player that has downloaded the required codec to open that type of compression. While no software comes with a computer that can join .mp4 files, there is free software on the Internet that will allow you to merge two related .mp4 files together into one file.

YAMB (Yet Another MP4 Box UI) is a freeware program that can take two .mp4 clips and combine them into one. To use it, download the installer from the website and install the program. Start the program, and it will guide you through the rest of the process.
Avidemux is a freeware video editor that will allow you to combine two .mp4 files. One of the drawbacks of using Avidemux is that you will have to access a video time line and combine the two .mp4 files together yourself, rather than having the program do it for you.
MP4 Joiner is another free program available online that will allow you to combine several .mp4 video clips together. Once the program is installed, start it, follow the prompts, then select the .mp4 files you would like to combine. You'll be asked which type of transition you want between each clip. MP4 Joiner will do the rest of the work for you.
