Split n Join allows the user to convert audio/movie clips into different formats, join multiple clips into one independent clip, split one clip into multiple independent files, each of which can be opened. With the exception of
ZIP archives DMG disc images, Split n Join does not deal with file parts. Rather, it's designed to let the user split a single file into pieces such that any of them can still be opened even when one of them goes missing or become inaccessible.
If you split a single QuickTime movie into several parts with 7Z, RAR, Split&Concat, you cannot watch any of them with a media player. And the worst part is this. If you lose any of the parts, you will lose the entire movie. Instead, why don't you just split one movie into multiple clips, each of which can be opened with a media player?
