Using ffmpeg to combine video and audio?

Andrew Valenkov
Hello, everyone I guess. Never used such "mailing lists" before to communicate with a bunch of people at once.
I am trying to become more computer-savvy, and learn all the digital multimedia trickery. I am also trying my best to preserve select YouTube videos in their original quality.
The situation is such: I have a video file with no audio, and the original audio from that video, both in /Downloads folder. I have searched for the solution, and seem to have found the command for the Terminal. But the closest thing to success I got was "no such command found" or "no such file or directory found".
I am a Mac El Capitan user, and have almost no Terminal experience. In other words, a n00b. And help that results in me succeeding is appreciated.

ffmpeg -i videofile -i audiofile -c copy output.mkv

Instead of typing audiofile or videofile, just drag and drop your file into
the terminal and the path will appear.

If you get an error, copy paste the full terminal output into an email,
along with the command line used.

Kieran O Leary's original comment would do it:
ffmpeg -i videofile -i audiofile -c copy output.mkv (note, if you can't
play it back afterwards, change it to output.mp4).

This is probably the bigger part of your problem. If you don't have FFmpeg
already (which if it isn't downloaded and installed
https://www.ffmpeg.org/download.html#build-mac, telling the computer to run
a program it doesn't have wouldn't help any). I don't have a Mac and freely
admit my experience is poo, so I can't help you with the install process,
maybe someone else on the forum can walk you through with their eyes closed
in that aspect.

The Homebrew method here has always worked well for me.

https://trac.ffmpeg.org/wiki/CompilationGuide/macOS

...except that I installed Xcode as described here:

Insolence. As punishment you must clear the messages/spam from the
mailing list non-subscribed user queue for a week, or answer the next 3
questions that involve some sort of networking protocol issue that can't
be reproduced.
