Using the History Panel
To get to the history panel, click on the third tab at the top of the JFuse window. The History Panel displays all of the files you have merged. From here, you can select a file and click on the "Play" button. Or you can select a file, or multiple files, and either delete them from the history, or delete them from your hard drive. The difference between the two is, removing a file from the history, will only tell JFuse not to display it. Removing it from your hard drive basically deletes the file. This also causes JFuse not to display it. (You can select a range of files by clicking the first file in the range, and hold down the shift key while selecting the last file in the range. You can select multiple files not in a range by holding down the ctrl key while clicking on files.) Back

Trouble Shooting
I merge files together, but the file won't play, or it plays only the first clip
If it appears the files were merged, but it doesn't play, or only the first clip plays, try switching to "Force Mode". To do this, go to "Settings" -> "Merge Mode" and choose Force Mode. Back
 
I am viewing the files through QuickTime, and they will not play correctly, or I get an error.
The newer versions of QuickTime have trouble playing some 'merged' files. Windows users can get around this by using a host of media players, including RealPlayer and Windows Media Player. Mac users can watch AVI files through RealPlayer, or Windows Media Player for Mac. To view MPEG files, you can use this player called VLC. You can download it here. It is a free program. Back
 
I get errors related to Java, or a message such as 'ClassDefNotFound', 'cannot find class'.
Java is not correctly installed on your computer. Java is needed for Jfuse to run, and we offer an installer with Java bundled with it. It can be downloaded from the download page. Back
