Here is my FFmpeg information:

ffmpeg version N-95714-g20c5f4d835 Copyright (c) 2000-2019 the FFmpeg developers
  built with Apple clang version 13.1.6 (clang-1316.
  configuration: --enable-gpl --enable-nonfree --enable-libfdk-aac --enable-libmp3lame --enable-libopus --disable-encoders --enable-encoder='aac,ac3,ac3_fixed,eac3,flac,libfdk_aac,libmp3lame,libopus,pcm*' --disable-decoders --enable-decoder='aac,ac3,ac3_fixed,eac3,flac,libfdk_aac,libmp3lame,libopus,pcm*,mp3*,mpeg*' --disable-muxers --enable-muxer='ac3,adts,dash,eac3,flac,hls,mp3,mp4,mpegts,null,opus,wav,caf' --disable-demuxers --enable-demuxer='aa,aac,ac3,dash,eac3,flac,hls,mov,mp3,mpegts,pcm*,concat,wav,caf' --prefix=/Users/ronakp/ffmpeg

And the command I’m running:

ffmpeg -f concat -safe 0 -i concat.txt -c copy output_concat_chopped.mp4 -loglevel debug

And the contents of the concat.txt file

file 'output1.mp4'
file 'output2.mp4'
file 'output3.mp4'
file 'output4.mp4'
